You might be getting interference from another nearby wireless network. I
had a similar issue with my wife's wireless XP Pro desktop when a neighbor
moved in and came up on the same channel I was on. I had to move to Channel
9 from Channel 1. If your on the default channel, many times Channel 6, you
might try 1 or 11. If those are used you might try others. Unless you run a
Netstumbler scan, or similar software, its probably going to be trial and
error until you find a clear channel.
