Wireless connects to wep network for 10 minutes then disconnects

Windows XP desktop computer is able to connect to my home wireless network for about 10 minutes, but then it disconnects. It does reconnect after some time, but keeps disconnecting. Any way to troubleshoot and/or fix this issue?

"What's your router make? Also, have you considered changing over to WPA from the poorly ""protected"" WEP? (Read up on its weaknesses here if you're not familiar). It's a long shot, but could someone unauthorized be hacking your WEP encryption?

EDIT: Also, this might be a good time to check the list of connected computers/devices on the router to make sure nobody is connected who shouldn't be."
