I'm very confused - has my router been hacked?

I am having problems with my internet connection disconnecting and reconnecting and slow loading of pages. Please allow me to give a brief background to the problem. I recently moved back home with my parents and have been using their internet connection and everything was running smoothly and no problems. However, recently my friends moved out of a flat where we had previously been living, so I moved the internet connection from the flat to my parents home. This internet connection requires the use of an O2 branded router, so I took it from the flat and installed it in my parents house. The internet connection provider has recently changed to O2. Since then I have had vast amounts of problems.

My connection will drop in and out and when I load pages in google chrome I wll often get the following messages (amongst many others) at the bottom of the page.

"resolving host"

I was thinking that this is adware/cookies/spyware. I have scanned my computer using adaware and spybot and removed some entries it found, but the problem persists. Since this problem has only started since connecting to the new internet provider, I am wondering whether it could be a problem within the router itself? I am very inexperienced in terms of spyware/adware etc, so apologies if I am not clear.

Does anyone have any help or advice? Thanks, Mark.
