Broadband lockup

Can someone please help, I seem to be experiencing "lockup" on my broadband connection. It seems to happen when accessing the ebay .co.uk site.
I can surf for hours, but the ebay site kills the connection within minutes the only way to get the connection back is to switch the moden off for a few seconds and allow it to re sync.. I have recently changed the MTU from 1500 to 1478, however changing back has had no effect. I suppose I need to know wether a particular site can kill a connection, or is it a hardware problem.

Running a ADDON GWAR3000 (Maplins special) modem/router wireless gateway connected to this pc with a cat 5 cable. This has worked fine for 6 months this problem has only been evident for the last two weeks

Hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
