Check your power management settings on the laptop.
Sometimes laptops can reduce or suspend power to the PCMCIA bus when they think they are not in use.
This can cause the wireless network to drop out.

Set your power management options to Always On an dtest it for a while.
If it doesn't drop out then it's a power management issue.

well i downloaded one of windows updates which is not critical and untill now its working fine .
20 min already nothing happened
lets see ...
if any thing new happened i will inform you .and about the power i will try it now but also i want to tell you that am using a built in wireless card
am using GIGABYTE (GMAX N601 ) laptop
thanks for your fast respond
Although it's built in it will still be using the PCI or PCMCIA bus and can still encounter problems if the laptop reduces power to these.

Hopefully you've got it nailed now anyway.
