Well r0k, the problem does indeed seem to be solved by re-doing the MAC address connection list. I had also replaced my old router (a Netgear WNDR 3400) with a new Netgear WNDR 4500. The old router was causing connection issues... not with wireless clients, but between the router and cable modem. It was replaced a few months ago, before I dumped my bootcamp partition. The problem did not occur until after deleting it.
Also, the router was not resetting itself. Other clients attached to the network, and to the NAS box, did not experience the problem. It was only my Macbook.
I want to clarify the MAC address thing... I wasn't filtering but restricting access to the router (wireless of course, not wired clients) and only allowing clients with known MAC addresses to connect. It prevents the neighbors, or someone parked close by in a car, from attaching to my network. I was only loosing the mounts to the NAS, not loosing connectivity to the network.
I think with having the same MAC address entered into the list twice (once for OS X, and once for the bootcamped Win7) did actually cause the problem. How I'm not quite sure, but since deleting the bootcamp partition AND re-doing the MAC address allowed client access list I've had no problems with loosing the mounts to my NAS box.
Interesting problem you had with Comcast (I'm stuck with them too). In all the years I've been running a router with Comcast cable internet I've never run into an issue like that. My IP rarely changes, however. It only changed recently after switching DNS providers (from OpenDNS back to Comcast... long story there on why). Before then I had the same IP for nearly three years.
Still, if anyone has an explanation for the problem I had been experiencing please chime in.
