Question about Gateway Belkin 54g Wireless DSL/Cable Router (DHF5D72304)
I, too, recently experienced this odd behavior on a friend's Belkin 54G. after changing the SSID from the default (yes, there was another Belkin54G SSID in the air) and changing the channel from 11 to 3 (anything other than 11), and disabling turbo mode, i would still lose the connection every 5 minutes or so. The workaround i used was to have 2 DOS shells open at all times. In one shell, run "ping 192.168.2.1 -t". As soon as you see the message "Request timed out.", type "ipconfig /renew" in the 2nd shell. That reattaches your computer's IP to the WAP router and corrects the issue for awhile.
one probable issue, especially if you're in an apartment community or neighborhood, is that wireless telephones (not cellular) that transmit in the 2.4 GHz frequency range will tear down a WiFi link anytime it's in use and especially when the phone is ringing for an incoming call. also, phones using this frequency have a range of up to 1 mile. the only solution i've found for that scenario is a) throw away the GHz phone if it's yours, or b) if it's not yours...better get out the ethernet cable ;)

It really happen when your using the setup CD to configure it.
You can also try to manually configure the router to work with your modem and ISP and also the wireless connection.
To configure the router manually you just need to access the router user interface and configure it from there.
