Ozenda Wireless Broadband Router + Belkin PCI Card

I have recently installed an Ozenda Wireless BB router. The installation was very simple and painless. The router connects automatically, has a built in firewall - its brilliant.

I bought a Belkin F5D7000UK PCI 802.11g card for one of the PCs and also installed that fine.

When the wireless network (currently unencrypted) is working, its performance is very impressive

The trouble is, after about an hour or so, the PC with the Belkin card in looses the wireless connection and won't reconnect without being re-started.

Can anyone offer any advice?

The Wireless PC is near the wireless router, it has 86% signal strength.

Wireless network adapters can lose their IP address, the router's DHCP server is unaware it has been lost and it isn't renewed. Rebooting gets the IP address again from the server. It might help to allocate a fixed IP address to the Wireless Network Adapter.
