Dropping wireless connections

    My home network consists of :-

    1 x WAG54G (firmware 1.02.1) with
    2 x PC's running XP Pro connecting via an ethernet cable
    1 x PC " " " " " a WUSB54G wireless adaptor - sig strength excellent
    1 x Laptop " " Home " " " " " " " low
    Norton IS 2005 running

    The problem I have is with the wireless units.When the network starts up the
    routers status shows 2 ethernet connections and 2 wireless and all computers
    work ok.At some random time (from 1hr to over a day) the wireless units lose
    connection and cannot find the network and the status display,on the router,
    shows all computers are connected via ethernet.I have to release the 2 'wireless'
    connections,wait and eventually the wireless side re-activates itself and the
    whole network is running again.However sometimes this solution does not work
    and I have to switch off/on the router to re-init the whole network.I cannot find
    any evidence of interference as the network can fall over during the night when
    nothing is happening in the house (unless snoring affects the router).

    As you can appreciate this is annoying,to say the least,so I would be grateful for
    any help in correcting the problem.

    This seems to be a ongoing issue...

    Solutions : Everybody seems to be different so...

    1. Try different firmware and remember to hard reset the router have you are finished upgrading the firmware.
    2. Make sure you have the latest drivers to the wireless cards in the pc's..
    3. Assign static IP's to the wireless pc's outside of the DHCP zone...
    4. Try a different channel...

    You can try those things to see if your issue is solved...

    This is a problem i am having, and it does seem to be there with some firmwares and not with some. The ones i need (With Decent QoS) all have the problem. I need pretty good QoS actually. If you know of any besides alchemy, I would be up to trying it.
    I have tried Different channels, Static IPs can't work because computer switch wireless APS (on campus, home) and they do have the latest drivers. Any suggestions?
