Constantly lost connection

    Hello. I live in a 3 floor house of about 2000 sq. ft. On the top floor at the West end of the house there is a WRT54G running hyper 2.1b1 thibor 15c. In the basement on the East end of the house, I'm using an Intel wireless network card. I was getting between Very Low to Good ratings at under 24mb/s with Linksys firmware. I upgraded to hyperwrt and boosted the power to 100%. Now I'm almost always in the Very Good rating between 24 and 54mb/s. The problem I have, is that usually at least 2 or 3 times a day I'm losing my connection for arbitrary amounts of time (anywhere from 5 seconds to 2 hours). So my question is that if my connection is so strong, how come it cuts out so often? Please let me know if you need any more info. TIA for replies.

    Thanks for the info. I was sitting on channel 11. I went to channel 7 and was getting worse reception. I went to channel 13, and then I lost the connection and couldn't get it back. I had to go upstairs and set a different channel. I guess my adapter can't see channel 13? So it's back to channel 11, and pretty much nothing's changed. I am adjusting the frameburst, beacon, and threshold values slowly one at a time to see if any of them affect my reception.
