Default Help with wireless card

I just finished my new computer, and it works fine, except my wireless card that I use for internet will not stay connected for more that 20 minutes, and will not allow me to reconnect unless I restart my router. I have a 2wire usb wirelessg adaptor, and my computer is an athlon x2 4200+, asus A8n-sli deluxe, 1 gig of pqi ram, 250 gig hd, and XP home.

Sounds like something could be messing with the signal. Then again, since you have to restart the router, to get it to reconnect, it makes me think there is something wrong with the router itself. While it's connected, ping the router. See what kind of response you get (fast or slow). If it's slow, then something may be messing with the signal, i.e. cordless phone nearby, etc. If it's fast, then there is probably something going on with the router.
