Wireless network works for 3 minutes only

I've got Actionetec USB wireless adaptors on two PCs. These connect to a Dell TrueMobile 1184 Wireless Router and an Actiontec Ethernet Bridge Modem.
I'm using WinXp Home.
All works fine for exactly three minutes then I get a popup saying...

"Wireless Network Connection - One or more wireless networks are available. To see a list of available networks, click here."

I then loose my broadband connection. I press connect and everything works fine for another three minutes.
I have tried changing the wireless channel from 6 to 11. I have disabled the firewall.

Actiontec Help - were no help.

My feeling is, that it it is a WinXp process that is looking for wireless connections and finding the one I'm already using.
How can I prevent this?
