It is not uncommon for the Standy or Hibernate function to interrupt the wireless settings.
The restart shouldn't effect the settings.
Please supply the Makes & Models of your setup.
Modem
Router
Wireless card

You will need to know the version numbers for this equipment, go to Linksys and make sure you have the latest drivers and firmware.

There really isn't much that can be done if the settings are correct. They either connect or they don't.
I can say that there could be spyware &/or malware that can cause your problem.
Run a complete clean and see what turns up.
