Ok - sounds like we can rule the router itself out of the problem.

Lets focus on the laptop itself now.

Are you using Network Manager or the like to configure the wireless
connection on the PC or have you written your own network interfaces
config files? Could you post them please, in either case. Zap any
interesting stuff like your wireless access key and/or external IP

Could you also post a minute or two's worth of annotated syslog
clipped when the connection drops - if you could insert info like
"This is where I stopped automatic reconnect and diabled wireless by
hand" that would be most beneficial.

people suffer from a delusion it is called religion.
