Two ideas: First update the router software. Second it may be the router is slowly going bad (had it happen to me).

Is the laptop connected by Wire, or wireless?

i don't think that is the case because the other laptop has no problem staying connected.

No, but I am wondering if the wireless is part of the preferred network. Are you using encryption?
