loosing internet connection in my laptop?

Just a couple of thoughts:

1) You may be too far away from the router.

2) If you're using wireless "g", you may have unwanted interference from a "2.4ghz" cordless telephone (yours, or a neighbor’s.) I know this, because every time i turn on my Panasonic cordless to answer a call, it completely cuts out my wireless signal from my Belkin54g router. I also have a v-tech 2.4 GHz cordless that does not interfere. Try using a different phone, or place your router somewhere away from any potential interference path...

3) THIS APPLIES TO WINDOWS VISTA ONLY:
If you are running windows vista on your laptop, this could be your problem. I have a Sony Vaio and I had the same problem. Finally got this solution out of a FOUR HOUR PHONE conversation with a service technician. Vista includes a new feature which ironically is "ahead of the times." This feature is a new version of something called "internet protocol (IP)." Internet protocol is simply a communication pathway for your computer to successfully connect to a router and thus to the internet. The version that is still supported by all wireless routers today is IPv.4. The problem with windows Vista is that it includes IPv.6 enabled which can cause connection problems with most routers. The SOLUTION is to disable IPv.6 for your wireless card:
a. I would recommend unplugging your Netgear router for this procedure and shutting off the switch for your wireless card.
b. Within Vista, click Start
c. In the search line, start typing “network and”. You will see Network and sharing show up at the top of the list. Press enter, or click on it.
d. In the network and sharing center, click “Manage Network connections” from the links on the upper left-hand side.
e. In the Network Connections window, you will see your network adapters listed. Note the options at the top of the window to change “organize”, Views”, “connect to”, etc…
f. Press and release the “alt” key on your keyboard. You will see a normal menu “pop up” with the standard “file, edit, view, tools, Advanced…” options.
g. Click on the “Advanced” tab.
h. Select “Advanced Settings” from the bottom of the list.
i. Under the “connections” box, be sure that “Wireless Network Connection” is highlighted blue.
j. Under the “Bindings for Wireless…” box, DESELECT (remove the check) from all options that say “Internet protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)
k. Click OK and you should be back to the Network connections window. In the Network connections window, locate the icon labeled “Wireless Network Connection” and RIGHT click it.
l. Select properties from the bottom of the list. Under the box labeled “This connection uses the following items:”, uncheck the checkmark for the IPv6 option. Be sure the Ipv.4 options REMAINS checked!
m. Finally, double click the IPv4 option to get to the properties window. Make sure both bubbles are selected for obtaining the IP address and the DNS server automatically. Click OK. Click OK again.
n. Restart your laptop
o. Turn your wireless router back on.
p. Wait about a minute and then turn your wireless card back on.
