    Please describe your entire network, brand and model of modem, router, etc., and how everything is connected.

    Are other computers also losing connection? If so, at the same time?

    If the router is losing its connection to the modem see if there is a firmware upgrade for it.

    If the computers are losing connection to the router suspect wireless interference, such as from a 2.4Ghz cordless phone or another wireless network on the same or close channel as yours.

    Phone check: unplug the base station and remove the handset's battery or hide the handset far away where it cannot interfere.

    Your wireless utility(ies) should be able to detect (most) networks in your area; you may have to click on "details" or something like that to see the channels. Or download NetStumbler www.netstumbler.com to see all the networks and channels at once.

    Or, you can just try different channels. In North America the non interfering channels are 1, 6 and 11. If you are in a crowded area (e.g., apartment) you may have to try others.
