Howdy, any and all help appreciated.

This was a problem specifically around the same time last year, and eventually went away without any change leading to it. This year I figured it;d be nice to have an operating network before July.

I run on comcast, have a WRT160N router, and am operating on Windows 7. My connection speed is typically fine, but periodically and at no particular time, it will drop. It'll go down to 0 kb uploading at downloading for a period of 30 seconds or so and then return. I wouldn't have a huge problem with this if it were occasional, but this is guaranteed every few minutes. It's completely rendered me incapable of online gaming and most other activities I use this laptop for. I've taken the steps of altering my MTU, Fragmentation Threshold, prioritizing my computer in the QoS settings. Nothing, so far.

Again, any and all help is mucho appreciado.

Have you tried using another router first just in case? When I experience sudden drop connections on wired or wireless, I first check the modem and router activity led lights (DSL, Internet) to make sure that its not an ISP connection or router problem.
