I recently bought two Belkin 802.11G wireless PCI cards for my new Linksys wireless Router. I have two computers directly underneath downstairs in my room from the router, and one computer works absolutely pefectly fine in all aspects of being online.

The other computer (the one im using now) however, constantly drops me from the wireless network. Both computers are running the same OS and everything yet I need to repair the wireless connection about 10 times an hour on this computer and its quite rediculous. Is there anything I can do to solve this problem? Im getting 100% signal and 54 mbps when im connected even! I don't understand what the problem is. So far ive tried repositioning my computer which did not work and changing signals on the router which hasn't worked ethier. Any help is very appreciative! (Repairs connection....since it was lost while typing this message)

I have had two different cards in my current PC, both different brands with equal results. I just switched it so that Microsoft handles all my wireless configuration and I think I might have helped the situation, I don't know though. I re-did the wireless network and searched available networks hopefully to some avail...

**EDIT**

No avail! I come home only to see my wireless connection has been disconnected again. I am stuck. I have no Idea what to do to fix this, I've even completely removed the hardware/software and reinstalled from step one! Nothing works...
