Check your router's wireless channel number setting. Too low a number can cause dropped connections, as can cross-channel interference from your neighbour using the same channel --- some wireless adaptor setup utilities will show the channel of each device in it's range, so pick a different one, bearing in mind that higher (10/11/12) is usually better.
On the other hand, you might simply be too far away from the router if it's a standard range USB adaptor (and most USB types usually are). If you can fit a PCMCIA cardbus card (if it's for a laptop) or a PCI wireless adaptor (if it's a desktop PC) you then have a choice of range-capabilities (standard, wide, and extra wide). The netgear 'rangemax' wireless adaptors are particularly good at maintaining a connection all around the house and even outside.
