Wireless Connection Problem

I have a Gateway running on windows 7, and I get wireless internet from my linksys router. Because I usually keep my PC in the same room as the router, I always have %100 connection. However, randomly, after either a few hours or a few minutes of being connected, I go from having 5 bars of connection to 1 bar, and my internet is so slow it takes minutes just to go on a website. Whenever I disconnect from the linksys, wait a minute, and then reconnect, it Is at %100 again. For months I have just been doing this and dealing with it, but now it is happening faster and more frequently, and I'm honestly tired of it. Could one of you tell me what may be the problem and ways I could fix it?
(P.S., I am at least as good at working with computers as the next guy, but I am not familiar with alot of terminology and I'm not a computer genius at all, so if any help could be in as simple of words as possible, that'd be pretty cool)
Thanks for any help in advance, this is my first time using this site.

What model Linksys router and computer are you using? Do you have security enabled? Do you have portable phones, they use 2.4 ghz also and can cause interference.
