I am using windows 7 64 bit on an HP pavilion laptop. I also use a wireless linksys router. I have had several instances where I will be on the internet and all of a sudden the LAN is disabled. I am not able to change that setting manually. Please help.

See if problem stops when you run an ethernet cable between the computer and the router instead of wireless.

Chances are the culprit is wireless reception or interference.
