can you test the router from another computer on the subnet when the problem occurs? if all boxes lose the connection behind the router then you know it's the router or cable modem.

what about just running your box straight into the cable modem to eliminate the router?

also, if restarting the router fixes the problem, did you try to narrow the issue by instead restarting the network on your linux box when the problem occurs?

also how's your router firmware doing?

if you did all this obvious stuff you might try another cheap router. i've had bad luck with linksys.

when this happened to me i tried IPCOP and was back up and smiling in under a half hour, it would take me years build a similar firewall! good luck with your configing.
