It never ceases to amuse me how people stop and write about things they _don't_ like on Stumbleupon.
I had a friend with a problem a lot like yours. It turned out that his ISP was two tin cans and a length of string. Try calling your service provider up and asking what type of backbone line they are running through your area; if it's as I suspect, check your string for slack, and make sure the can doesn't have any dents or supernumerary holes in it. Consider upgrading to a dial-up modem, if the cost isn't prohibitive and that service is available in your area.
