Internet Keeps Disconnecting on One Computer

I curretnly have 4 computers connected to my Network uisng a wireless Netgear Router. 3 computers are hardwaired and the 4th is wirelss. The one in the basement, which is hardwired, frequently loses the internet connection, this is not a problem with the others. Using 20 ft cables, which came with a prvious router, on all 3 computers and the one that is a problem is about 15ft or so from the router. When I ping the router address, I regain the connection. Router firmware is most current version as is the OS and all other software. Using Firefox but same problem with IE. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks
