Wi-Fi network unavailable until router restarted

    sometimes the Wi-Fi connection drops and suddenly, my home Wi-Fi network is
    not in range. No matter what I do with the laptop, I don't see the network.
    Neither does any other laptop in the house. Ethernet connection with the
    desktop works fine though.

    Problem is solved only by hard restarting the Wi-Fi router. I am looking for
    some solution so that I don't need to restart the router everytime the
    connection is lost.

    My router is Ovislink WL-1040AR. My laptops are Dell Inspiron 9100 and Dell
    Latitude D600. My ADSL modem is ZyXEL Prestige 600 Series.

    Anyone solved this before me? Thanks for any answer!

    Prague, Czech Rep.

    P.S.: Sometimes, the connection doesn't drop, I just cannot ping the router
    (it becomes unreachable, even though the Wi-Fi network is available). And
    sometimes, the ADSL modem is unavailable, but the Wi-Fi router is
    reachable -- restarting the ADSL modem helps.
