    Try disabling dhcp on the router and assign a static ip address on you desktop, which in that case also on your laptop..

    Highly doubt its a dhcp issue. as a new IP is needed when the machine boots up, not continuously. if the wired is failing its either a bad cable, bad network card, or bad port on the router. i dont think any logical configurations could be causing this.

    just a random thought. you have secured wireless? if someone who should be on there is, they could be spoofing one of your mac addresses or the like.

    check the forums on your motherboard manufacturer's site and see if anyone else if having similiar problems. also try replacing the ethernet cable and upgrading your motherboard bios.

    USB? if it is try limiting it to 11mbit, if that makes it stable that means your usb is 1.0 or 1.1 and not 2.0 [if you try to get wifi going above 11mbit across usb 1.0 or 1.1 then it will do this]
