Is this a WiFi or OSX problem?

I have a strange connectivity problem which I've tried through two different WiFi routers:
My WiFi router is connected to my Cable modem. Whenever security is enabled on the router (be it WPA, WPA2 or WEP), the connections between my WiFi router and client devices frequently drop (i.e., iBook, iPhone, Mac Pro) so that I cannot get email, etc. It's only (temporarily) solved by turning the Airport card off and on again. (Note: the signal from the router is okay-- just the connectivity drops.)
Connection Doctor on my Mac shows that the Configuration is changed/reset on OSX. Other diag codes on different apps signify "Server Timeout," etc.
Is there something else I need to configure on my router? Or turn the OSX firewall off?
Any advice appreciated.
