It looks like your router reboots from time to time.
Usually this is because some buffer overflow problems or even an electrical problem.

As gh0stface said, I would try to upgrade your firmware.
Or just go back to the store you bought and return it.
If you'll get a new one, I suggest the Linksys. Smile

reset the router maybe? Possibly defective?

I had a problem with my router that made my laptop lose it connetions from time to time. I did not have to type inn the password, thoug - since it's set on automatical login. In my case it was the "auto" speed mechanism in the router. Everytime it changed speed due to change in signal, I lost connetions for a sec or two.

After I locked the transmission speed to 54, (and not auto) the problem went away. It's no problem for me, because I'm very close to the router - if you are so far away that your signal strenght decreases, you may experience a big packet loss when turning of autospeed.
