That sounds like a defective Airport card in the MBP. I'd take it back to Apple on a warranty claim.

It only happens on the O2 wireless router at my dads house he has a sweex wireless router and it never disconnects from that, I don't think its anything todo with mb pro think it might have something to do with the router. May be the airport card in the mb is not 100% compatible with tis router.
