may you please run the microsoft troubleshooter for wireless.
simply right click on the bars in the system tray for your wireless internet and click on troubleshoot problems, I'm thinking you just have to powercycle your modem and router and the laptop.

You might consider updating your wireless router's firmware. I had issues with my previous (same brand as yours) wireless router and upgraded to what I considered to be a better brand.
