Very odd wireless problem

Ive been using this setup for a while with no problems. The problem started about a week ago and it hasnt gone away. When ever I leave my laptop idel for a few hours, I lose my internet connection. I stay logged on to the router but the internet doesn't work. The only way I can get it to work again is to restart the laptop or connect to my neighbors router and then reconnect to my router. I've tried everything I could think of to try to fix it without having to go through that. Ive tried turning off and on the wireless card, logging off and on windows, the repair connection option, release renew ip, and disconnect and reconnect to my router.
I have a dv1000 running winxp pro and a D-Link DL-524 router.
I dought anyone can help, but I figured I'll post this since I have run out of ideas.
