I'm talking like every 5-10 minutes. I'm a gamer, so this is totally killing my ability to do anything.

It started up a few days ago for no apparent reason, and I can't get it to stop. I've tried everything short of a firmware upgrade, and I'm afraid to do that because the connection's so unstable that I'll probably end up bricking my router halfway through the update process.

My connection would always slow down a lot whenever I had other people connected to me (whether they were doing anything or not. I suspect my roommates have viruses sucking up all the bandwidth), but it would never disconnect me like this.

If I disconnect the router, everything's perfectly stable, but my roommates aren't exactly cool with that.

firmware updates aren't done through the internet....you download the file to a wired pc and execute it that way - only takes like 10 seconds.

Tried updating the firmware. Did nothing.
No idea about my roommates' computers. The connection drops and then comes back almost immediately, so I can't really check. It wouldn't really be a big issue if I didn't play games.

That's their problem, they need to get their act together and clean out their PCs...

I'd have to say your right. Tell em to lay off the malicious crap until you figure it out. If they can't stand it get a different connection or kick em off yours. Find out who's rig is causing the problems, fix, or remove the problems, and you'll probably be ok. If not it's either something with the router, modem, or internet connection.
