Always one step ahead...

Let's hope you stay connected.

So it did disconnect again?

Every once in a while it's going to disconnect. It could be something on your end or on your providers end, but it will happen from time to time. Hopefully you won't just drop your network when it stops broadcasting it's SSID. Not sure why it keeps doing that, though.

Okay, cool. Check your router settings and try to re enable SSID broadcasting. Having it disabled can cause connectivity issues, as you've seen, and it's a complete myth that having it disabled provides more security. You can still easily find the networks that don't broadcast. If broadcasting is enabled, then you probably have something faulty going on with your router, but keeping it connected by going through manage wireless networks and properties should continue to work.

NP. I've had the same problems and I know how annoying it can be. Especially when you just can't get anything to work....
