When was the last time you upgraded the firmware on your Actiontec?  I
had problems like you describe with my old one, but they pretty much
went away after a firmware upgrade.  I have a new Actiontec now, and
it had very different firmware, but I put it in bridged mode so I
don't have to worry about it.
