I have 3 computers on my wireless network (PC, Dell Laptop, Sony Laptop). All of which were connected fine to my wireless network and working as expected. A few days ago, I ran the Windows update for my Dell Laptop and it installed MS Service Pack 2. Ever since this update, the wireless connection on the Dell Laptop will become disconnected every 5-10 minutes. There is NO disruption in connectivity to the other systems on the network. This is VERY frustrating, can anyone help?

Right click the network connection, click properties to check there is nothing about disconnect if idle
