Why does my LG bluetooth headset randomly disconnect from the Rocketfish adapter?

Q: I’m hoping that someone here is a bigger geek than I. I purchased a Rocketfish Bluetooth adapter. Coupled with an LG Bluetooth headset I can use the soft client for our IP phone system. However, the Bluetooth adapter randomly drops out. It appears to be something with the device/port though my USB kbd/mse are fine.

After 5-10 seconds the adapter comes back up and the headset (usually) reconnects. When hovering over the Bluetooth icon in the system tray it comes up saying “Device not found” – referring to the bluetooth adapter *not* the headset. It is a minor frustration – though I have had it drop out mid-conversation – an embarrassing situation.
