Mandriva 2006 and WPA dont wanna play!!

I was really thrilled that I finally got Mandriva on wireless w/ encryption- WPA-PSK. Unfortunately it was short lived. At first I thought I had a weak signal problem but it wasnt,its Mandriva dropping the encryption after surfing for a few minutes, so I would go back to the control center and install the encryption key again which would get me back online...temporarily. I am lost, I came so close to get rid of W$ but now this, any ideas?
