I understand what it feels like when you have a connection like that. Most probably your router is getting flooded by the request and it is finding it difficult to clear its buffers. Before disconnecting next time I would suggest you check the CPU and memory utilization of the router. If it is unusually high, the problem is with the router or the requests you are sending it. If it is not than contact your Service Provider, to check the things at their end. As DSL is a shared media, most of the time SPs over subscribe their links so that it is fully utilized. It may be that the link is saturated and still new users are joining, choking your link.
