cheapo router wierdness

in General Discussion edited January 2014
I've got a cheap little Belkin G router. It's doing this odd thing where it resets the WAN internet connection every minute or so. It's not something I can precisely time. It has almost no effect on regular browsing, but youTube or any downloads are out.

Connections from local computer to local computer through the router are not effected and large file transfers work fine. If I connect the DSL modem to the computer directly, everything works fine also.

I also have an identical router at home that was doing the same thing. I tweaked the IP lease time and that made the problem go away for no apparent reason.

That has not worked here at the office, nor has resetting to factory settings, etc.

Both routers are connected to AT&T DSL service.

Any ideas?
