Sounds like it could be a gremlin in your laptop, either spyware, malware etc.
Other options :
Have you considered the fact that there could be other access points in the area broadcasting on the same channel as you ? If theres loads of people in a street all pumping out wireless signals, and the majority are broadcasting on Channel 6, and your broadcasting on channel 6 your leaving yourself open for problems. I would try changing the wireless channel your to perhaps channel 1, check to see what other access points are set to in your area, do a scan then select your router to the least used channel.
Another thing to consider is that certain things can effect a wireless signal. Maybe your wireless signal is being sucked away to nothing by something, there are certain materials that effect RF signals, Id google the materials and see if anything springs to mind like for instance, foil lined walls will destroy a wireless signal and wont let it go very far at all, that is just an example you need to look into it a bit more perhaps.
If you think its spyware or malware, Format is the way I would go, 0 your drive
Hope you get your problem gets fixed post any updates as I`m interested in what happens with it
