Are they in a different part of the house? All sorts of things can interfere with wireless signals - microwave overns are particularly good at it. Other than that, any steel girders in the structure can do it, as can radiators. It's even been known for automated street lighting equipment to cause problems.

I can put my laptops in the same room as my wireless device and it still drops signal on and off.

[#0005ff]If the router is "N" capable, make sure it and the adapters are all set to B, G and N and try, if you can, to ensure that the adapters are looking for the same channel the router's using to transmit.[/#000ff]
