AOL - Fluctuation in bandwidths and apparent packet loss


[link to this post]
 
Hey guys, I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to this kind of stuff, but after moving in and having dealt with this for a few months I've become fed up with the situation and want to see what I should do about it.

Situation

After an hour or so, the DSL drops and has to be reconnected via the router page. This varies in frequency from 10 times a day to 20. Each time, the bandwidth changes dramatically, here are some stats given by the router.

ADSL line status
Connection information
Line state Connected
Connection time 0 days, 0:05:27
Downstream 416 Kbps
Upstream 448 Kbps
ADSL settings
VPI/VCI 0/38
Type PPPoA
Modulation ITU-T G.992.1
Latency type Interleaved
Noise margin (Down/Up) 21.9 dB / 16.0 dB
Line attenuation (Down/Up) 53.0 dB / 31.5 dB
Output power (Down/Up) 14.9 dBm / 12.3 dBm
Loss of Framing (Local) 61
Loss of Signal (Local) 10
Loss of Power (Local) 0
FEC Errors (Down/Up) 7792 / 0
CRC Errors (Down/Up) 386 / 2147480000
HEC Errors (Down/Up) nil / 0
Error Seconds (Local) 1005

Another time....

Uptime: 0 days, 0:33:27
Modulation: G.992.1 annex A
Bandwidth (Up/Down) [kbps/kbps]:160 / 3,584
Data Transferred (Sent/Received) [MB/MB]:23.27 / 367.72
Output Power (Up/Down) [dBm]: 11.5 / 18.5
Line Attenuation (Up/Down) [dB]:31.5 / 52.0
SN Margin (Up/Down) [dB]:13.0 / 12.0
Vendor ID (Local/Remote):TMMB / TSTC
Loss of Framing (Local/Remote): 0 / 0
Loss of Signal (Local/Remote): 0 / 0
Loss of Power (Local/Remote): 0 / 0
Loss of Link (Remote): 0
Error Seconds (Local/Remote): 0 / 0
FEC Errors (Up/Down): 0 / 59
CRC Errors (Up/Down): 0 / 0
HEC Errors (Up/Down): 0 / 0

I'm unsure what's going on and gaming is impossible, I checked pingtest.net and they gave me the following results, packet loss ranging from 20-70% loss.

Any ideas guys?

Thanks in advance.

Guess you have a choice of two routers, picking the one that normally works best try it in the test socket, i.e. the one that looks like http://www.thinkbroadband.com/images/faq/faceplates/...

If the stats are better then next step would be
