AirPort occasionally drops connection

This has been a chronic problem since we first started using wifi at our house, though it's not as serious an issue as my mysterious G4 IBook Can't Get Onto The Wifi problem in another thread.

Wifi will work perfectly for hours, sometimes days at a time, when suddenly the connection drops. The menu will show four bars, the base station light will show green, but the iBook and MacBook pro in the house lose the connection. Resetting the base station -- unplugging it and plugging it back in -- brings the connection back, but this still happens fairly regularly, sometimes once or twice a day.

Meanwhile, the wired Ethernet connection between the DSL router and the G4 tower functions normally, so I know that's not the cause of this.
