I have 3 machines using XP pro. Internet/firewall software is Norton. The
router is a Linksys WRT54G. I can make connections and surf the web using
the wireless network, but after a few minutes the wireless units lose
connection. I am able to reconnect, but it's a vicious cycle.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

From the linksys KB:
If your wireless signal is intermittent, then you are most likely you are
experiencing 2.4 GHz interference. You will need to try switching channels
and changing the SSI D on your WRT54G. The best channels are 1, 6 and 11. To
switch channels:

1. Using a computer that is plugged into the router directly with a
network cable, open a web browser.

2. In the “Address Bar� type http://192.168.1.1 and press Enter.

3. A box should appear asking for a “User Name� and a “Password�.
Leave the “User Name� field empty, and type your WRT54G router password into
the “Password� field (the default “Password� is admin) and click the OK
button or press [Enter].

4. The WRT54G “Setup� page should now appear. Click onto the Wireless
page.

5. When the “Wireless� page loads, you should be on the Basic Wireless
Settings sub-section.

6. Look for the “Wireless Channel� option. The default channel is set
to “6 - 2.437GHz�. Change it to either “1 - 2.412GHz�, or “11 - 2.462GHz�.

7. Click on the Save Settings button toward the bottom of the page to
save changes. Click Continue when prompted to reload the page.

8. The channel of your WRT54G has now been changed. Restart your
wireless computers so that they can automatically connect using the new
channel.

9. If you still experiencing interference using channels 1, 6, or 11,
try switching the router to the other channels as well (2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9,
10) and find one that captures a good connection.
