I had a few problems like this when I was on Virgin and this is what I had to do;

Unplug everything
Leave it for a couple of minutes then plug the Virgin modem back in but don't connect any ethernet cables up
Then plug in your router, again don't plug in any ethernet cables
Leave that all for a few minute to settle then plug the ethernet cable from your virgin modem into your router
Leave a couple of minutes
Then try to connect

had same problem a couple of months ago
was using a belkin pre n router on ntl/virgin 2mb broadband fine for over a year
no probs
all of a sudden kept loosing conection
when i tried to scan for the router it wouldnt see it
was an absolute nightmare
i would do what the above person said and would work again for a day or even a week.
i tried changing the channel the router uses normally 1 to 11 and auto, after googling what chanels the uk use it told me channels one, seven and eleven
had no joy with channel 1at all
so i used to switch between 7 and 11 and auto
you could also try re-setting the router by pressing in the reset rubber button with a pen refil it should say reset and is either flush or resessed, hold in for about 30 secs, its either on the bottom or on one of the sides.
although mine still done it from time to time
i then phoned ntl and they reset my internet their end
and since then its only done it once in about 3 months
so may be worth calling them
hope this helps
