Getting kicked off repeatedly can be caused by driver or firmware issues. If you don't have any issues at all with other wireless connections, then your girlfiends wireless router probably needs to be checked for a firmware update. You need to get a hardwire connection to her router and log in with the admin account, then see what firmware version she is running. Go to the Netgear web site to look for a newer version. If there is one, download and save it. Before upgrading her firmware, check all settings and write them down, including the network key. You may have to re-enter these settings after you do the firmware upgrade. Now find the section in the admin pages where you point to the newer firmware version, and do the upgrade. After it completes, recheck all the settings you wrote down, and fix the ones that need to be changed. Now you probably want to power off / power on the Netgear router and then try a wireless connection to see if it kicks you off.

Well, first try "repair" the connection from your laptop. If that doesn't work, then try powering off / powering on her wireless router. If that doesn't work, check your laptops security settings to make sure you have your wireless connection enabled to accept information (I know you have a connection, but maybe security settings prevent the passing of information). After that try an Ethernet connection between your laptop and her wireless router (using one of her hardwire Ethernet ports and an Ethernet cable). If that still has no Internet connection, then her router isn't getting a connection to any computers. Find out why she lacks an Internet connection at her router. If that does work, meaning the wired connection passes information, then I would look into the admin configuration settings and possibly look for the firmware update for that router.
