I had exactly the same problem and it was driving me crazy. You have not fully described your set up so I will explain mine and see if it fits.
I have a D-Link ADSL modem which is hard wired to my NI Router. The N1 router is also hard wired to my PC to give me back up should the wireless network go down.

After much research, the problem I found was that both the modem and the router were running DHCP servers ( these assign the IP addresses to your network ). As a result of this the network became confused and just went down. The rule is that you must have only one DHCP server on a network

The solution was as follows

1. Do not use the modem as your primary gateway - change it to bridge mode - usually ppoe llc - this disables the routing capabilities in the modem and send the data directly to the N1 router

2. The connection on the N1 router is probably set to dynamic - change this to the settings recommended by your internet provider probably ppoe etc enter the user name and password given by your provider in the router ( to be clear the modem no longer contains the user name and password)

3. Restart all and then hopefully a steady service will ensue.
