I've seen that happen, but usually it's just the cable modem acting up. Though once it turned out to be the router I had (an old Linksys WRT54GL with a flaky WAN port).
One last thing you could try, maybe temporarily use the Motorola SB5100 as your main firewall/router for a week or two & see if the problem still occurs. (e.g. remove your Linksys WRT54G from the network). Perhaps lightning struck twice & you ended up with not one, but two bad routers? If it's still happening, call your ISP & explain that you only have the SB5100 in the network now & the problem still occurs. ISPs love to blame the issue on something else in your network
But yeah, Detection is right. Offhand it does sound like an ISP issue, you may need to shop around for a new ISP if they really have no interest fixing it for you.
