My first guess would be interference of some sort.
Have you done a survey looking for nearby access points? You might
start by turning off your access point and using Kismet (or another
sniffer) to conduct a quick survey and pick a channel. Remember that
the channels only have 5 Mhz separation, but each uses 22 Mhz total
Also, any chance you have a 2.4 GHz cordless phone?
