Check if there is a new driver for the NIC or firmware for the router first.

What is common to the two laptops? Do they use the same adapter chipset?
Drivers?
We had this occur several years ago, (not with Vista) and found that a
common driver was at fault.
Replacing it with an earlier driver version cured the problem, at the
expense of some minor problems with the earlier driver version.
