Vista's new locator service?

Microsoft has not been known for "quiet" networking systems. They tend to chatter.
Does anyone know of something in Vista that could cause a wifi signal to shutoff or become garbled briefly at precisely 1 minute intervals?
I am using Linksys music bridge to stream audio wirelessly from my HP DV series laptop running Vista Home Premium to a set of speakers. The audio becomes garbled or shuts off completely for 2-3 seconds at precisely 1 minute intervals. Any suggestions as to what could be causing this, or ideas on how to track it down would be greatly appreciated.
I believe I have eliminated all other software and hardware and isolated this problem to either Vista or the HP laptop. Here is some additional information:
- The problem does NOT occur if I connect to my router with a wire instead of wirelessly.
- The problem does NOT occur under any circumstances if I try to stream audio from my old computer, which is a Toshiba laptop running XP.
- The audio disruption is not dependent on the media player; I have tried three of them.
- CPU utilization is around 20%
Here's the URL for the Linksys music bridge: http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1137451822026&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=2202640536B01
Any help would be appreciated!
