    Not knowing how far away your wireless access point is (you said you're using it "from outside"), have no way of knowing what can be interfering with the signal. Depending on the frequency band being used, LOTS of things can interfere, including cordless phones. Just something electronically opaque passing between you and the access point could be enough to cut the signal.

    You need to check your power settings if you're using a laptop or if you're using sleep or hibernation. It's possible that those setting are disabling the wireless when power is low.
