I've been having issues with my Linksys WAP4400N droppiing connection when downloading large files.  I've found this solution on the web and wanted to post it here for others.

It turns out that if you change the SSID to all lowercase letters with no numbers or dashes, the problem goes away.

I know, it sounds odd.  But it solved my problems.
