From your description it seems that the Wireless Connection between your
Wireless computer and the Wireless Router intermittently drops.
It might be due to weak signal or and environmental electronic noise that
interfere with the signal.
Place the Wireless Router in a spot that is high above surrounding
obstructions so that the transmission would not be impeded.
Disable the Wireless security, and change the transmission channels in the
Wireless Router (see the Router's manual). Find the best performing and
stable channel, and then enable again the security.
