i have a netgear DG834G wireless router on my main computer and a belkin wireless receiver on my sons computer. when the computers are started i get good connection speeds, but after an hour or so the speeds start falling. after three hours the transfer speeds are down to between 1MB and 5MB but signal strength is always excelent.

I presume you do have wireless security setup, so no "neighbours" are hitching a free ride on your wireless network?
The signal strength indicator is a very rough guide as to what your signal strength is ~ not reliable.
Does the same thing happen when your son's computer is in the same room as your router? It could still be poor radio signal reception & transmission.
