  2. Check if there is a new driver for the NIC or firmware for the router first.

    Try to do these steps:
    channel to the strongest channel, Enable WPA-Personal)
    preferred network list (Go to Control Panel, Switch to classic View,
    Click on Network and Sharing Center, Click on Manage wireless networks
    and delte the networks that are listed on the window)
    adapter is working fine.. Call your computer manufacturer if it is a
    built-in wireless network adapter

    What is common to the two laptops? Do they use the same adapter chipset?
    Drivers?
    We had this occur several years ago, (not with Vista) and found that a
    common driver was at fault.
    Replacing it with an earlier driver version cured the problem, at the
    expense of some minor problems with the earlier driver version.
