This sounds similar to an issue my laptop and my wife's laptop have been
having now and then.  (Though sometimes I swear adding an icepack to my
laptop makes its Wifi more reliable.)  If she turns on her computer after
it having been off, I'm suddenly booted from the net.

We have an all-in-one wireless router (*man i need glasses*)  WRT545G, FWIW.
