Wireless network make Hulk mad. SMASH!

My home wireless network is driving me crazy. Every single device on it just disconnects from it at odd random times (not all at once though), then five minutes later they come back. It's very frustrating. My wi-fi router is a Motorola WR850G and the wireless devices are all different vendors. The router has an aftermarket antenna (that was my first attempt at fixing the problem). When connected on my desktop, I usually get a pretty strong signal (4 out of 5 bars), so it doesn't appear to be a distance/clearance thing. But I could be wrong.

I've tried searching around for answers, but I guess my Google-foo is weak. Anyone have any suggestions? Should I replace the router? Would standardizing on a single brand make thing more reliable? Or is this just par for the course and I should shut up and quit my damn whining?
