Et tu, Linksys?

Hey, hope this is the appropriate place.

I'm having an issue with my Linksys router.

Recently, I took a stab at hooking my Xbox 360 into the wireless network, but ran into a few problems. They looked like simple setting adjustments, nothing that would crash the network, I thought. The whole thing crapped out. The two computers we use wouldn't pick up the signal, nor would the Xbox. After some tinkering, the network's back up, everyone's connected, and the Xbox is wallowing in a pool of sultry unproductivity.

For reference, the devices on the network are:
1. Powerbook G4, running 10.4.11
2. A Toshiba (I think), running Vista
3. & the Xbox 360

Also, the router is a Wireless-B, BEFW11S4, with firmware 1.52.02.

However, the signal drops out anywhere from 1 - 4 times a day. I have to unplug it each time to get it back up and going. Now, I know how to access the settings page and all that noise, but once inside, most of it is Greek to me.

So, any ideas? It's killing me to open up my computer and have it tell me, "No, get your ass up and reset the router. Then you can waste time."

Thanks in advance.
