Acer Aspire 5749 Series WiFi Connection Dropping

I am asking this question because every once in a while when my sister's Laptop is sitting next to the modem/router it drops connection with a triangle over the WiFi bars.

Do I need to update the driver that has to do with the WiFi?

There are 2 that has to do with the WiFi under Network adapters. The first one is Atheros AR5B125 Wireless Network Adapter, and the other one is Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter.
