Belkin wireless router keep disconnecting my l aptops


I have a wireless router 54 G. Now it keeps disconnecting my three Vista computers (once a day) and XP computers ( every few minutes)

I changed different channels (Belkin support suggested). It didn't work.

I changed security setting from Open to WPA to WEP. all the  same.

Anyone know why?

(I have a cordless phone close to the router, I am not sure any interference coming from it)

(I am using Verizon DSL modem to the router)

Is this new, or has the Belkin always been this way? They are generally decent routers, although Belkin sent me a new replacement for one that was erratic. Also try finding new firmware for it and applying it. Can you turn off the phone for a couple of hours to test the XP computers (and maybe the Vista computer?  All that I have discussed and suggested are independent of No security, WEP or WPA. ...

Thank you,

The tech support checked the firmware version for me. I have the most recent firmware.

I was disconnected every 24 hours. It is hard for me to turn off the phone. But I will give it a try.

If turning off the phone does not work, see if Belkin will replace it. If two computers do the same thing, it is hard to pin the blame on the computers. ... Thinkpads_User
It could be the phone, best yet to move the phone elsewhere if possible. I do know from experience a 2.4ghz router and 2.4ghz phone disrupt each other. The channel would usually fix the phone thing though, you may need to try all the channels, one by one and see if it works. Switch to channel 1, wait and see if you disconnect, then switch to channel 2 and see if you dc, so on and so forth, all channels except for 9 dc'd me.
