It appears to be a frequent topic. But, after a fresh boot and the
lights are on, go to the device manager (under system in the control
panel) and click on computer. See what IRQ the pci card has and see if
it is shared (something else using the same one). Should be 9, 10, or
11. ( I had a similar problem with a shared irq with my sound card)

If this looks ok, then take note when the connection drops, (microwave
on, using 2.4ghz phone etc.)
When connected, what is your signal strength and connect speed. 30
metres indoors is quite a bit if there are alot of walls etc in the
way. Try reorienting the antenna or the access point to get the best
signal and speed.
Even try horizontal position. Instead of rebooting, go to network
connections, right click on the wireless adapter and disable then
reenable it. See if it wakes back up!

Good luck
