No, Belkin are a decent brand.

You really need to find out what's causing the problem before you can do anything about it.

Do you have only the one internet capable device (computer/console/smartphone etc.) connected? If you have more than one do they all suffer from this problem?

If you only have one, or if all of them do suffer then you may be having trouble with TalkTalk's DNS servers, you could try setting your router up to use ]OpenDNS and see if that helps.

Hi have talktalk and had the exact same problem.

Do this:

don't discount the possible co-incidence of the router failing, i had a belkin that managed to go the same way took a couple of months to finallly die and their warrenty is useless as they make you jump through so many hoops...
