Another cause can be placement.  I had a WRT54 in a room on one side of a
corridor, and a laptop in an office on the other side of the corridor was
fine... Untill a class lined up outside the classroom.  

Bodies hold water - water stops RF.  Laptop promptly falls off the network.

Try lifting your AP up higher, or moving it relative to wet things.
Fibreboard/plaster/rockboard/gibboard are known to absorb water, as are
papers like books.

Good luck!

My Linksys WAP54G has always done this...from day one...for over two years.
Firmware upgrades have had no impact. This alone makes voip over wifi
completely unreliable on my lan.
