Found a great tool which increased stability on my router (DG834PN), as well as including about 100 features not seen on the standard firmware - even SNR increase/reduction to affect speed/stability.
You can grab the firmware for most of the 834 series routers here: http://dgteam.ilbello.com
I did this on a DG834 straight router, connection speeds (synchronised ADSL) went from 2908Kbps to 3824Kbps - On the SAME LINE !! No connection drops - 34 hours on the same PPPoE session.
