DWl-2100AP/DWL G520 keep disconnecting from network

Hi I have a office network of about 30 users.
Windows 2003 Server is the DHCP Server
all worstations are either Windows XP Pro SP2 or Windows 2000 Pro SP4
all PCs have DLINK G520 wireless pci cards installed and configured
I have 6 DWL-2100 AP ( Wireless Access Points scattered through the office (3 floors)
The master 2100 AP has all the MAC Addresses of the other 2100 APs
all the other 2100 APs have the MAC Addresses of the master 2100 AP in the DLINK utility for each AP
Issue is some of the computers are able to keep a connection, with a strong signal to the AP, and another PC which is right beside the first one gets connected, but upon rebooting, it looses its connection.  I cannot be here all the time to babysit the end users and get them connected again.  I have called DLINK, and to no surprise they do not knwo how to help.
any ideas anyone?  or anyone have similar issues?
I have tried static IP's, and still no luck
all the APs are in bridge mode or mtp bridge mode.
