Question about Belkin Computers & Internet
Using the Belkin F5D8633-4 with the firmware 1.0.1 it comes with was pretty bad for three macs with Leopard 10.5.6. They constantly dropped the connection (and with the airport indicator still falsely showing a connection; you couldn't even reach the router at http://192.168.2.1/) Only turning airport off then on again reconnected. The iPhone, OSX 10.4 and Vista windows PCs (including a Vista install on the iMac) NEVER dropped the connection. Every possible setting was tried on the Macs but the dropouts continued every few minutes As mentioned here the Belkin firmware shows no update available from the interface, but the "prerelease" firmware 1.01.06 available at the Belkin site FIXED the OSX Leopard compatibility problems straight away.

Try what Latoof suggests & use static IPs (outside the DHCP range).
Also, don't bother attempting to update the 8633's firmware through its interface. Go to the UK or Australian Belkin support site & find the "pre-release" firmware update that resides there. It contains quite a few fixes!
