I now don't think it's something to do with "over night." It happened
twice this morning while I was in the kitchen with the laptop. I wonder
if somehow the microwave is not just creating interference but messing
with something to cause it not to be able to reconnect even after the MW
stops? I've sat with it in the kitchen for years tho, and never had this
problem before. Or maybe something else between the AP and the kitchen
has started creating interference or started blocking the signal. But
I'm not aware of anything having changed there.
