It happens about every 5 to 10 minutes. It is very annoying, and I cannot get much done in 5 minutes. AT&T my internet provider says it is a power outage every time I call them about the problem. Are they joking?

Sometime this type of equipment can break down when they are subjected to mains voltage spikes. To prevent mains spikes from damaging your equipment, I suggest you get a surge protection powerboard and connect all your computer equipment to this surge protection powerboard.
Check the ADSL led is constant or not? Reset the modem and check your DNS settings, also check if you can enter the router by typing:192.168.1.1: and see the settings of your router...................sodeep
who is your broadband provider? Is this cable or DSL connection? Setting up the router is done via http://192.168.1.1. Leave username blank, password is admin. If you have Cable ISP, then make sure you have "Automatic Configuration-DHCP" selected and MAC address Clone is enabled on Setup > MAC address Clone (click Clone, and Apply). If it's a DSL connection and your broadband provider gave you a username and password, select "PPPoE" for Internet Connecton Type, and enter in your DSL username and password. Next verify if your modem is communicating with the router by going to the Status page and by verifying that you have an Internet IP address. If none, wait for a few minutes and power cycle your modem and router.
Your router might be worn down or installed wrong. I have had the same problem before, its very annoying. Try re-installing it or using another computer to make sure its the router. Also turn off all firewalls and try going online then. Another possibility is your web browser.
