Getting a router to work

I am running Windows XP Home SP2 with 512 megs of ram on Wanadoo Broadband and wish to start a wireless connection with my wife's computer downstairs (Also with 512 RAM and XP Home SP2). I have bought a 3COM 3CRWDR Router and the appropriate insert for the other computer, but although I can get the router to connect initially, with all four lights coming on (Power,SYNC,Online & WLAN) after a little while (Time varies) the On Line light goes out and the connection is dropped.
3COM say that they think there is too much noise on the line but British Telecom have tested it and tell me its OK.
Has anybody any suggestions as to how I can fix this?
