Do you have your landlord's permission to use his router?

Are you a wired or wireless connection? It could be that his router needs a firmware upgrade. If you can run a wired network to your computer.

Try pinging bro.

Next time you get d/c from a site, ping your router.

Open command prompt. (start->run->type 'cmd')

Once in command prompt, type: ping 192.168.1.1

If you recieve errors instead of replies then we can take it from there knowning its the router. If the router replys back with no errors, tracert the website you are trying to look at by typing in command prompt: tracert yahoo.com

Tell me what happens. If you get no requested timed outs then there is nothing wrong with your connection, your router, or the path from your isp and further. If this is the case, we'll have to consider its something with your browser.

Sometimes replacing a router or modem can resolve the problem. It worked when I replaced my modem when having problems with Cox. This took months of horrible troubleshooting too. I'm glad yours is fixed Damancy.
