Could be a few things but the fact that you say that performing the repair function causes it to work again for at least a period of time is somewhat telling.
Is this being used wirelessly at your home or place of business?
If you regularly use it wirelessly in more than one location, does this sort of thing happen at only one place or across any and all of them?
In the place or places it happens, are there any other wireless networks visible? When you are in one of those places can you check the order of preference in your wireless adapter's properties for the different networks; make sure the one you want is at the top and possibly even remove the others from your list.
Related to the last one, check that you are not set to try and auto-connect to any non-preferred networks (this is the default but it may have been changed while trying to troubleshoot this yourself).
I could go on but for now check up and get back to me on the above. Also, if you have not already, try simply powering off your wireless router (if this is the home scenario) and back on again; it may resolve this flaky connection issue. Maybe go in to Administrative functions for the router and choose a different 'channel' for the router. Turn on the logging function for the router as well if you are able if it is not logging already and we may learn something from there as well; such as if it is constantly performing DHCP release and renew on your adapter.
