Tony,
Thanks. I tried to think of something else that was happening in the house when the connection dropped. However, the last most noticeable event occurred when nothing else (apparently) was going on.

The choice of 2.4 GHz for wifi was a pretty bad one in hindsights. The same band can interfere with cordless phones (that's why I only buy DECT 6.0 phones myself), Bluetooth, microwave ovens... That's why the industry is slowly shifting to the 5 GHz band, which will resolve a lot of interference issues.
