Linksys WRT610N V1
Firmware Version 1.00.02 B10
Windows XP  Service Pack 3

I have a Linksys WRT610N V1 router that has 3 wired PCs, two wired printers and a wired Blue Ray player for the TV.  All the wired systems work fine.   All the wireless devices in the house sporadically will have a connection for a while and then no connection for while.   I currently have the security disabled (been trying several things)… and all wireless enabled for only the devices that I have listed in the MAC Address Filter.   The attached PDF file has several screen shots of the routers setup screens.

Wireless devices – HP Laptop, several iPhones, Kindle, etc…    My internet provider is Earthlink coming through a Comcast Cable modem.  The cable modem is Scientific Atlanta DPC2100R2.

I know very little about networks so if I need to provide additional information please point me in the right direction.  I would like to get this corrected so I have a constant wireless connection to the wireless devices in the house.

Any help will be appreciated.
