Windows XP Network Issue :: Lost Connection Event ID 8033

My two Windows XP (Pro and Home) laptops get kicked of the wireless network (Fonera wireless box) every day or so and I either have to restart them, restart the wireless router or main network router (Chinese ZTE) in my home network to restart. Did all of the above many times.. Sometimes I even need to restart the MacBook Pro also connected to the wireless network.
The Laptop running Windows home shows event ID 8033:
The browser has forced an election on network \Device\Netb_Tcpip_
{AC040E9E-70D8-4673-9DD6-3E234B28494A} because a master browser was stopped and another ID that it tries to reconnect again. This event is followed by a 4202 saying the network adapter broadcom was connected to the network and has initiated normal operation over the network.
The other laptop with XP Pro gives event ID 20269 that it could not connect to the DHCP Server and that the automatic private ip address will be used for dial-in clients,id 20106 that it was unable to interface with the Router Manager for the IP protocol. Following error occured: Cannot complete function and ID 4201 The system detected that network adapter  \DEVICE\TCIP_(...) was connected  to the network and initiated normal operations over the network adapter. This 4201 was repeated many times and followed by a 4202 (network adapter \DEVICE\TCIP\ (..) was disconnected ... and the adapter network conf. was released. If the network adapter was not disconnected this may indicate that it malfunctioned) and 4201..
Finally when the MacBook Pro gives up it shows this error:
 4/15/10 6:40:27 PM      SystemUIServer[302]      Error joining MyPlace: Connection timeout (-3905 timeout connecting) many times.
This is all really frustrating. I just need these three laptops to place nice. Can anybody explain what the problem is or what I need to provide here to solve the issue?

If all of the laptops are getting kicked off I would say that you probably have an issue with the router. I would reset the router back to default settings if you feel you are capable of reconfiguring it.

I had a similar issue in the past and buying a new router fixed my problems.

Will have to buy a separate wireless router. Will do that some time later. Too bad I did not get any information on the error data here.
