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.

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.
