Windows 7: Wireless stops working on random days

Wireless stops working on random days

At no particular interval the wifi in my laptop turns off. I found that if I go into device manager disable and then re-enable it, it fixes it, but I end up doing this every other day and it really annoys me. Since I first noticed the problem, I have reinstalled windows ( for various other reasons ) multiple times, but the problem still exists. Is it a hard ware problem?

Have you tried plugging into a different slot?, you sure your drivers are up to date? and what is the model number?

Already have, thanks. I installed something totally unrelated to it and it seems to be holding. Strange...
