    Replug the laptop charge into a power strip with an on/off switch and
    then power it off before unplugging.

    When the laptop is charging, especially if the battery is very low, the removal
    of the A/C adaptor from the laptop creates a SPARK and this creates RFI;
    Radio Frequence Interference. A wireless ADSL modem may take the RFI
    and --- do any number of interpretations.
