Although this may sound like a dumb possibility, but it happened to me once.

Do you have any other wireless devices acting around your laptop? I found my wireless mouse would lose connection a lot while my wireless router was in front of it, and sometimes my flatmate would lose connection to the LAN. Although changing the mouse channel would have done it, I was lazy. I moved the USB port the mouse transmitter was using behind the router .

Silly I know but I never had a problem after that and neither did she.
