Unhappy What is WRONG with my internet?

For the past year now, I have been having the most obnoxious problems with my Comcast Cable internet.

Currently I experience a 5-10 second downtime about once every minute. It's REALLY annoying if I want to try to stay on IM, Download things, and check my email. Here are what I know are NOT the problems:

Router: I checked by plugging the modem directly into the PC. same problems still occurred.

Wireless adapters: PCs using the wireless adapters experience the same problems and downtimes as the PC connected directly to the router.

Spyware: Just ran a check, no spyware I even reformated the PCs a while back...

So I've had Comcast come in and look at the problem and all they did was replace a cable that they said was bad. This helped a little bit (we used to have these issues way more frequently, the cable replacement brought us to what I posted above).

Has anyone had problems like this ??
