Reseat and check ALL cables. Reboot the ISP modem and router. Contact the ISP to analyze the signal, have a ISP tech come out to verify the signal, it may be outside equipment.

Have you attempted to connect the internet after the router stops flashing? Do the lights start flashing again? If you do, then it would be considered normal.
If they don't and you do not have an internet connection, try the next step.
Next, plug your computer straight into the modem - Do you have an internet connection now? If you do, your router may require configuration.

SOURCE: I have an apple router.
It's a common problem with wireless routers, especially with certain ISP's, there's several theories about why this happens including cheap parts and software on the routers but it can be much worse if it's over a cable connection. Possibly because the MTU is higher on cable networks than wireless ones. This issue doesn't seem to affect wired connections to the routers as much. ie you may still get a working wired connection even if the wireless isn't working.
Certain makes are known to behave this way, with certain ISP's. eg in england there's a cable company called virgin media, belkin routers really don't seem to like them, but netgear seem to work much better, which is probably why virgin recommend netgear and will only supply netgear routers themselves.
Try changing the channel id if it's wireless, as there may be a lot of interference around you and this may or may not have a bearing on this issue. If that doesn't help then ask your isp what make they recommend as they should have an idea of what will work best, at least the tech support dept should.
In my opinion the best makes of routers are netgear and linksys. I also like belkin although they aren't as good as they used to be, and as mentioned can suffer from this problem quite badly in some cases. As you are with a cable
You will never completely eradicate this problem, all wireless routers will need resetting now and again, but it should be weeks or preferably months between each time. Cisco routers may be more reliable but they're business routers and are very expensive, and probably a bit more complicated to setup.
ps. I used to work for virgin media as tech support.
