Can static electricity buildup and discharge knock out a computer's wireless connection? It's been happening a lot lately on my laptop. It's dry and cold here in NoVa and everytime I sit down at the computer and zap it, the wireless drops. Is there anything out there that I can use to prevent this from happening at such a frequent occurence? I hate having to restart the laptop everytime the wireless drops because the laptop can't pick up a signal after it's been zapped.
