Well at a rough guess

The Power Saving is turning things off and when it reconnects it's not completely working correctly.

It's one of the Undocumented Features of WiFi it's not overly reliable as well as considerably slower than a wired connection. I would hazard a guess that a Windows Hot Fix/Patch has made the changes quite some time ago now as either a Security Improvement or a user Improvement to the OS. I would think it's to do with the security of the system which is causing this to happen though it could just as easily be a Power Saving Option buried deeply somewhere unlikely.
