Windows 7: lose wifi connectivity, GP's fail and then logon failure

I've had a few more come back that had dropped the wifi connection, one of them I tried a winsock reset. After the computer restarted the wireless was back and working fine... the user logged on with no problem.

So I'm assuming that the TCP/IP stack is becoming corrupted, could the MTU size still be too large?

That is hard to say with out more experiments. Resetting winsock fixes lots of other problems as well but resetting the TCP/ip stack uses a different command, I posted them both below.

netsh winsock reset catalog (reset winsock entries)
netsh int ip reset reset.log hit (reset TCP/IP stack)
