set up home wireless network - specifically whenever a certain laptop is used in the house, it knocks out the wireless network. I have to reset the modem and then the laptop (and other computers) can use it.

Is it only when one particular laptop connects to the wireless, that it drops out completely?

You could try connecting to the wireless router with an Ethernet cable and update the firmware, sometimes that can fix dropouts. Otherwise, it could just be a faulty wifi router and the laptop that's connecting is either bombarding it with packets of data it can't handle, or it has reached the maximum number of connections.
