Unhappy Internet shutting off every 5 mins

OK, weird problem

we just got a linkisys wrt545g router and over the past few days the internet has been slow (comcast's fault), but now, every 5-10 mins, the internet just stops working! And the onlyt way to get i t back working is to unplug/replug the router power -- but i dont see how this could be a problem with the router since its brand new...

Any ideas?

Thanks

I use to have Comcast too. Lots of dropoffs. They gave me a new modem and the problem was fixed.

i have comcast up in PA and its fine. Could it possibly be the LAN or wireless card on your PC not working correctly? I've heard of DFI boards with bad ethernets that did that.
