I've seen this issue alot as well, sometimes at my own home, sometimes in my old work place. We used to have the problem alot with our old modem. It would randomly sputter and choke until we finally just had to up and replace it. Before doing that, however, I would call your DSL company, have them run tests on your lines, both while on the phone and if they dont find any errors have them come to your place of residence and check the lines as well. A MAJOR issue we have had in the past with many of the DSLs we used to support were that somewhere along the line a tech had installed a bridge tap on one of the DSL lines much further down the cables themselves, and it would mess with signal strength.
Another thing. I have almost the same identical router as you and I have noticed that when our wireless connection is enabled, the connection itself while both connected via cables or not, gets flaky. I dont know if its just my router, or an issue with the model itself. Try turning off the entire wireless connection on the router itself if you no longer use it. That fixed alot of our problems with our connection.
