Internet only works for a minute... (ubuntu dapper)

I seem to be having a problem where my internet only works for about a minute and then stops. I just upgraded to ubuntu dapper and it started happening. The thing is, if I reset my router, the internet starts working for my computer again, but then stops again after a minute. I know that it works because I am currently on my laptop and online through the router. I have tried using both static ip and DHCP. The router is a Microsoft MN-500.

Here are the results of ifconfig in case it helps.
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:08:A1:22:95:24
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

make sure your nic is set to dhcp, and that the router uses PPPoE and not "bridge".
