We have an on going problem with one of the laptops connected to our wireless router, which we use mainly for internet access. The router has two desktops and two laptops in contact with it and all can usually access the internet. However, one laptop is very problamatic, it often loses internet connectivity all off a sudden and just as suddenly come back on again and i have no idea why. It recieves the wireless signal continuosly with a signal rating of 'good' to 'excellent' so it is not that the laptop isnt recieving signals from the router(i think). One of the desktops also has the same problem but it is no where near as common. Could the problem to be with the firewall(McAffee on all computers), the browser(internet explorer 7) or its settings or something else?

The things that seem to re-connect are, reseting the router(done by pulling out the plug, putting it back in and waiting a few minutes), which almost always wokrs and reseting the laptop, which works about 1 in 4 times. However, both of these could be due to passage of time and just chance that it solves the problem.

Can someone please help, more details can be provided.
