Acer Aspire1 netbook conitues to lose wireless connectivity

I have an Acer Aspire1 netbook which continues to lose its internet connection.  I have changed the security on the router from WPA to WEP back to WPA and so on, and it will work for a little, but then it will lose its connectivity.  I have set a static IP and this seems to work for some time, but then it "craps" out again....
Any ideas?

My wife has an acer one model number 150 something. We had a bt wirless router and the connection used to drop all the time, if you switched it off and back using the wireless button on the front it might work again for a while.
Then i bought a cisco AP 1231e now we dont lose connection.

I had to update the firmware on my D-Link Extreme N router to keep my Acer Aspire Ones (I have two of them on my network) connected.  I continue to use WPA2 encryption, but they were buggy until the firmware upgrade.  I didn't do anything to the laptops, just the router.

Mostly this relies on the router indeed.

You can change the channel to a low channel (channel 1 to 4). This may in some cases give you a more stable connection.

I suggest updating the router firmware is a good idea. What router do you have?
