Default Internet

well, i have Comcast hooked up to a Linksys router. MY internet will work off and on in intervals of like 2 mins or so seems like. Sometimes it doesnt work for awhile sometimes it works the whole day. You cant count on it. It just started happenning again. It has to be software issues. My Firewall is off my AVG Firewall doesnt work so thats disabled. How can i figure out what the problem is. What can i do?

Well.. another thing i should have mentioned is that my computer is wired directly to that router. Also my xbox 360 is hooked up to it as well and now it is also having connectivity issues. WTF?EDIT: just ran a connectivity test on the xbox it failed on the "MTU" step.

WEll fixed the MTU problem changed everything back to default. I think im still having problems now. I can get connection to 360 but it will probably fail again.
