Is having a ethernet cable plugged into your PC an option? that could rule out any wireless problems you may be having, as it would eliminate any interference causing a problem on your internal network.
in addition to that, if you log into the router information and continue to advanced settings, go to ADSL info,
copy the following sections if you would:
Data Rate Information
Stream Type Actual Data Rate
Upstream 448 (Kbps.)
Downstream 7616 (Kbps.)
Operation Data Upstream Downstream
Noise Margin 24.0 dB 9.1 dB
Line Attenuation 18.0 dB 30.5 dB
just so we can rule out any obvious ADSL issues there.
EDIT: Also please add:
Link Type --- Interleaved Path
on the top of that page, if your on fast path, although it can lower pings, it can also increase instablity four fold, on my line, if I request fast path, my stability drops massively, and it can barely hold a connection for more than 4-5 hours. Just a thought.
