thank you just downloaded lets see if it holds up.

I am on VIRGIN and recently had the same problem. I found by resetting the router to factory settings and changing the encryption from wep to wpa? it sorted the problem. Up until then I was running fine for a year or two then suddenly like yourself it started dropping signal ranging from 5min to 5 hours. Not had any problems since. I am not saying this is the solution but maybe worth giving it a go.

HELLOOOOO i had that same problem and contacted belkin and they sent me a new router and it solved the problem for a while, i contacted them again because it had happened again and sent me an even better model, contact them and tell them the problem and theyl try fix it, if it dont work when they go through it step by step with you they should send u a new one wich u would receive in a matter of days

A common cause of this problem can be interference from another wireless device - most usually a video sender. Can be cured by changing the frequency - often there is a choice of 3 or so on the back.
