Ok, I have a DSL connection, that gives me a different IP on every connection. I used to have to have each box connect seperately, but recently I got a router, so all the boxes can be on a LAN. The problem is that the router reconnects once in a while. I think this is the cause I keep disconnecting in mid-game. Anyone got a solution?

Should not happen while you play, unless the router is broken somehow or your ISP is not so nice.
Try if a manual reconnect before you play helps.

What do you mean by "should not happen while you play", the router shouldn't reconnect?

While you play, there is traffic on your line. And while there still is traffic the router should stay connected, unless your ISP disconnects you wich should not happen too often.
So either the router does not work as it should or your ISP.
