    The Ivory Tower (I'm not coming down)
    Those numbers are meaningless. If you lose connection every three days it's not going to manifest itself in posting a snapshot of your router's performance at any given moment. It's more likely an ISP issue.

    looking for trash files

    as above. the snapshot numbers look fine, good signal and what not, but in my experience the SB won't disconnect, the ISP switch will drop the connection to the modem, and then you get to wait through the entire handshake and authentication script again. fun. make sure the modem isn't in a small or enclosed space as they get hot, dust/blow it off, and other than that, they usually work fine or die all the way never to return.

    i had the same thing for about 5-6 weeks when they were upgrading some local switching hardware, after they finished, it's all better. if you continue to get dropped, you might call the ISP and ask for help. the phone rep won't know anything, but the tech who comes out should know whats going on.

    other than that, if it happens when it rains (or on sprinkler/watering days) and not on dry days, you might have a cable issue. just a thought. best of luck.
