How come my laptop will not get on my home wireless network anymore but will get on other wireless networks?

Q: I have a problem concerning my home wireless connection. For the past week my laptop has been dropping my home wireless connection, my laptop shows no available wireless signals. I have to restart or shut down and reboot my laptop to find a signal. This has been working less and less until yesterday when it completely stopped. However, my laptop has been working fine from a wireless hotspot at a local bookstore. I am using a Gateway laptop Model # MX8741, with a Motorola SM56 Speakerphone Modem.

    It really sounds like your router/wireless access point at home is starting to die. Do you have other computers or devices at home that can connect to your Internet wirelessly?
