Countdown to disconnect...

My laptop wireless keeps dropping. I have two other computers in the same apartment that are connecting wirelessly through the same router, in the same proximity, so I don't think it's environmental interference. How do I best troubleshoot the likely cause?

It was working fine a few weeks ago. The only thing I've done in the meantime is connect to the router with an ethernet cable, and although the timing seems to coincide with this, I can't figure out why it would make a difference. When it drops the signal, I'm able to reconnect immediately without issue, and it generally holds for up to 10 minutes until it drops again.
Any troubleshooting tips I've searched out haven't been very helpful. I'd be very appreciative if anyone has any good ideas, based on the details I've provided.
