WRT120N Losing Wireless Connection

I have a Linksys WRT120n router.  I'm running Windows XP and Windows 7 on four computers in the house.  On the 3 wireless connected laptops, I'll lose the network connection after an hour or so.  The signal strength is always in the "Excellent" or "Very Good" range, yet the connection periodically drops.  Are there settings that I can change to keep the connection from dropping?  It's a frustrating problem.

I forgot to add that I have performed a firmware upgrade to version 1.0.04.

Re: WRT120N Losing Wireless Connection

I tried the settings and will see if they help with the disconnecting issue. Can you recommend a good resource for me to learn what those settings mean? e.g. what is the difference between 20 wide and 40 wide, etc.  Thanks
