Is your wireless network secure? It is possible someone is logging into your router and changing settings. Every time I find an unsecured wifi network in range to my laptop I add a password to the GUI of their router so no one can muck with it. If I had less principle I could do a lot more. At the very least set a management password on it. Point your browser to 192.168.0.1. The default credentials for dlink is admin and the pw is blank.
Give your NIC a static IP. Set the default gateway to that of the router (the default for dlink is 192.168.0.1.) Set the DNS addresses to 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124. If your connection comes up and stays up for a while then you know you have a DHCP problem.

Two suggestions: re-flash the router; temporarily disable the firewall (assumes non-Windows OS software).
Re-flash the router:
Download the router firmware to the laptop. Hardwire the laptop to the router. Flash the firmware.
This brings the router up-to-date and corrects possible corruption of the firmware.
Putting both computers hardwire to the router gives a meaning comparison of how the router is performing.
If only hardwired computer loses connectivity to the internet, disable that firewall; check performance.
If problems persist, follow the hardware path.
