Battling Peripherals

The office ADSL modem won't hold a connection for more than a few minutes before dropping off. It reconnects when I reboot it, but then it loses the connection again. The router log tells me
"Unrecognized attempt blocked from 10.0.0.138:137 to 10.0.0.1 UDP:137" every 10-20 seconds, as the connection drops out. (10.0.0.138 is the modem) The weird part is that the BBC Radio2 stream isn't affected by this, just email, ftp and WWW.

I've changed nothing in the filters or firewall between yesterday and today.

Bloody hardware.
