wireless router dropping connection

I have a recently purchased wireless N router and have experienced the wireless signal dropping from time to time. I've talked to many others who say this a problem with all wireless routers, I have heard to update the firmware but still notice the router dropping signal after updating.  Any ideas on way to keep a strong signal or do these just go bad after a little while. Your thoughts would be very helpful
