DSL: Connectivity Issues

I'm having a very strange problem keeping a consistent internet Connection. Here is a picture of my network:

Another service that is running on is DHCP.

My problem is that my internet connection is dropped all the time for no apparent reason.

If I keep the DHCP server on my DSL router, however, my internet connection is pretty stable.

Does anyone know what kind of messaging needs to happen between Earthlink and I in order to keep my connection up and running?

When I talk to Earthlink, all they can tell me is that they do not support this type of seup.

404 on the piccy.

However, what's wrong with letting the server handle DHCP?

How big is the network, would just disabling DHCP altogether be a possible solution?
