Wireless Connection keeps dropping then Reconnecting

I have a linksys WRT54G with the version 23 of DD-WRT the laptops are running linksys wireless G cards ver2. The router uses WPA2 Pre-Shared Key, the algorithms are TKIP+AES. The connection will drop about every hour or so then reconnect and after about 6 hours or so it will drop the connection altogether but it can be reconnected without a problem.

I've been googling but I haven't been able to find anyone with the same problem.

You could try changing the channel of ur wep to some others.
Overlapping channel from neighbours may cause interfearence too.
It is best to have 5 channels apart.

Furthermore, are there any cordless or wireless equipment working around the 2.4 ghz band?
Try disabling them.

Good luck

Try setting your router to operate only in G mode, as well as the things already mentioned.
I would suggest increasing the DHCP lease time to like 1 week. Or just max time

I extended the dhcp time, tried to run only in G mode (which I have several B clients) but still tried it, and tried adjusting the channels but none of these seemed to of helped the issue.
