WMP54GS connection issues?

    I have two computers both with WMP54GS v1.1 in them. The issue I'm having is that the wireless signal gets dropped in a very strange manner. Both computers experience the exact same problem. I can go for days even weeks without experiencing any connection drops then suddenly I can experience a rash of connection drops. It just goes POOF out of existence and won't reconnect to the router (a WRT54G v5 by the way) until it feels like reconnecting. During this period of being disconnected I can't see the router with net stumbler at all, even though I normally have an excellent connection to the router. Other APs in the area I see the regular signal strength to. Now the really weird thing is that any APs that are on the same channel as my router when the connection disappears I can't see them either. I've experienced the same thing on channel 1, 6, and 11 depending upon what channel I've set my router to. They don't reappear until my router reappears either. I have tried switching the drivers to the broadcom drivers in the sticky including the recently posted update (I forget the version number) and am now switching back to the linksys drivers to see what happens with them. I don't believe that the problem is the router as I replaced the router the other day and still experience the same problem. There shouldn't be anything interfering with it that I can see since I have a clear line of site to the router, there are no wireless phones in this household, and nothing else between the router and the computers that should be causing interference either. So then ... is anybody familiar with this issue? Any ideas? I've been e-mailing with Linksys support and haven't been getting anything good from them. Thank you very much.
