    Every so often, my router appears to go sleep, lol. Its not a serious
    problem, its happened about 3 times in since i got it 4 months ago. Its
    easliy solved by disconnecting the router from the ac adapter then
    reconnecting it. Any ideas.

    ask your router manufacturer. some routers seem to require regular
    rebooting/power cycling. maybe there is a firmware update to help yours.

    Can you define "going to sleep"? Do you mean it loses its connection to
    your cable/dsl modem? What brand cable/dsl modem and router? What ISP?

    Both of my pc can't find the SSID, or the network, which "suddenly"
    reappears when its reset.

    Try updating the firmware on the router. Get it from Linksys' website,
    and make sure you get the correct firmware for your exact model. If a
    firmware update doesn't solve the problem the router may be failing.
    You may want to replace that older router with a newer 802.11G model.
