Internet access problem with wireless router

Hope someone might be able to shed a bit of light on this problem.

We have a small office network. consisting of 1 server running SBS 2008. and 5 client machines.

The internet is accessed through a belkin adsl router which has wireless enabled. DHCP and DNS is handled by SBS.

The internet works fine on a day to day basis. However we have one worker who visits the office a couple of times a month. He is not part of the domain but connects to the wireless network for internet access only.

this seems to work fine for an hour or so but then everyone loses access to the internet. The router config screen cannot be accessed either.

If i reset the router everything works again fro a couple of hours then the same problem. Only way i can fix is with a reset.

Any ideas what could be casuing this??

Cheers in advance.
