Had this problem some time ago. A process got killed.
Do a ps -ax right after rebooting and also when the network isn't working 
again. Compare these two and look for processes that aren't there any more.

Also look at the console. When I had the problem for the first time, I got 
some error messages saying that there isn't enough buffer space or so.
This could be another possible cause.
