Comcast/Linksys internet connection cutout

Periodically (some days are way worse than others) my intenet connection cuts out multiple times a day. Toggling the Linksys WRT54G router always solves the problem, sometimes or hours or days, sometimes just for minutes. My ISP is Comcast and I am hooked up through a Comcast internet/phone modem. I have had this problem now in two different cities. Buying a new router every year or so seems to help, but is this really a solution? Suggestions?

Do you have many computers behind your router? Firmware upgrades or even putting dd-wrt on you router will do wonders for it's stability.

Only 1 desktop hard wired to the router and 1 wireless laptop (and 1 network printer). Good idea re dd-wrt, how do you install that?
