winows cannot detect wireless network

Have posted on networking, just in case someone on here as any idea???
Vaio laptop running winxp DLINK DWL 650+ connecting to DLINK G604 router. Has been working perfectly for over a month (card is a month old) vaio is set up for windows to connect to the network rather than the dlink utility. address of has been assigned to the vaio as per the ipconfig screen. Have statically assigned this in the setup of the router on Everything runs fine, Then all of a sudden I will get a message bubble stating windows cannot detect network. sometimes if I remove & replace the card it will sometimes reconnect, other times even a reboot will not work and I just have to be patient and after no specific time it will connect. This is getting annoying now and I can't see any obvious explanation. The only change I have made is an update to IE 7.

Hi, Uninstall IE7 using Control Panel>Add Remove, then see if your connection works again.
You can always reinstall IE7 if you want to. If you do uninstall IE7 you will automatically be returned to IE6.
