    Hopefully that should fix things, if you don't get a disconnect within the next day or so then I would say this is solved

    Your testing on your friends network narrowed it down for me

    Happened again last night after an hour or two, changed to WPA 2, haven't d/c'd since. Again, thanks for your help, this problem had me pretty stressed but now it is definitely fixed

    No worries . Forgot to mention, when you change the wireless security you may need to reconnect all your devices again with the new key
