> What would be the reason for this?

There could be many reasons.  Interference is most likely.  How many other networks show up when you right-click the wireless icon and choose View Available Wireless Networks?
Or if you're using a 3rd-party connection manager, what does its site survey/scan find?

Any cordless phones or wireless intercoms nearby?

I'm thinking you would've noticed already if it happened everytime someone used the microwave.

Is this an industrial setting, with e.g. variable speed motors being controlled?

If the answers are 'none' 'no' and 'no' then download the latest firmware for your router at
http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_CASupport_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1166859934823&packedargs=sku%3DWRV200&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=3482334823B01&displaypage=download#versiondetail
and apply it according to the instructions in the ''Upgrading the Linksys Router's Firmware'' link in the lower-right corner of that page. I would back up the settings first and them import them again after the upgrade, if it will let you do that.

If that doesn't help, download the latest drivers for your wireless card, unisntall the card in Device Manager (right-click it and choose Uninstall or Remove), then run the install program for the drivers.
