My System Specs

Default

I'd say run this: Download inSSIDer and Discover the Wi-Fi Networks Around You | MetaGeek

And figure out which channel is the least used, then set your router to that channel. It's likely your router is set to "Auto Channel Scan" which would explain why it works when you reboot it.

Also if you have 2.4GHz cordless phones in your house, I'd suggest upgrading to 5.8GHz or DCET6.0 sets instead.

But it could very well be the router itself too. I wouldn't say Belkin is the best name in the market, and especially if it's been in service for a while. Could be that the wireless radios have overheated and no longer work 100%.
