Wireless Laptop loses connection

Posts: n/a
Hi. Well, as the subject really.
A friend of mine has a a Belkin wireless router for his ADSL connection. He
also bought a Belkin notebook wireless pcmcia card.
Everything installs perfectly and the connection is great for a couple of
days. Then it drops and wont reconnect. I keep popping round and try
everything, but end up re-installing it. It again then works for a few days,
then gone, again.
Any ideas on how to keep the blinkin thing connected.

Many thanks

regarding them and winxp.
