Laptop keeps disconnecting me from wireless

Recently I have been using my laptop in wi-fi areas, especially public libraries. Every time I am connected to the network, the connection will only last for 5-15 minutes, sometimes longer, but it disconnects many times while I am doing important things and screwing me up. Right now I am on a different laptop connected to the library's wireless and I am having no problems. When it disconnects, it's only for a few seconds and then reconnects, but it's still extremely annoying. What can I do?

Thanks in advance for your help!

If not using a laptop with a built-in wireless adapter, you may need to buy a new adapter with a wider range than the standard one you've probably got now. Something like the Netgear 'Rangemax' can pick up and hang on to the wi-fi signal much more reliably and over a greater distance.
