This Fujitsu tablet looses wireless connection several times a day.  The log event copied below consistently shows when this happens.  There is no other device on the network with the same name.  I even renamed the tablet a month ago to see if that would make a difference but it did not.  I am going to disable the wired nic to see if that helps but I am open to new ideas.  I have already updated the wireless driver but again that did not change this behavior.

The event log is below and I will attach a screen shot of the nbtstat - n result.

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      NetBT
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      4319
Date:            5/29/2012
Time:            8:43:54 AM
User:            N/A
Computer:      TABLET-2
A duplicate name has been detected on the TCP network.  The IP address of the machine that sent the message is in the data. Use nbtstat -n in a command window to see which name is in the Conflict state.
