The problem must be caused by HW or Windows.

1. HW1 ? Router
2. HW2 ? Wireless card or Laptop (if built-in wireless)
3. OS ? Windows

Test with another computer with wireless connection.
If there is the same problem, it is the Belkin router (wireless portion) that is causing the problem.
If there is no problem, the cause is either HW2 or OS.

Install and test with a different wireless card (PCMCIA or USB).
If there is the same problem, it must be Windows. You need to backup data and clean install Windows.
If there is no problem, the cause is HW2. If the wireless card is a PCMCIA, replace it. If it is a built-in, the laptop is the culprit and you may need to install a PCMCIA or go with wired connection

If you do not have any replacement to test, take your laptop to a local computer store.

When you test with a different wireless card, you need to a different connection. For example, if yours is PCMCIA, test with a wireless USB. Otherwise you cannot tell whether the cause is PCMCIA connector in your laptop or Windows.

i wonder what the belkin website has to say about this. can you get it to ever stay connected, say if the laptop is right next to the belkin. (eliminating poor or interfered with wireless signal)?
wireless needs line of sight to work well, generally speaking, you may have a marginal signal that is getting interfered with by tv signal, wireless phone big motors running nearby...

I just finished a job working with a wireless router. Nothing seemed to work as it was supposed to until I flashed the firmware on the router. Then everything worked perfectly.

You might consider checking to see if you have the latest firmware on the router.
