      Denial of Service attacks against individuals are very unusual. The are usually associated with businesses. If you are seeing an unusual number of attempted connections then it is likely your IP address was previously 'owned' by a gamer. Normally changing your IP address will reduce the frequency, also turn off Respond to Ping on WAN, unless it is really needed.
      I'm sorry I can't give you any advice on connection dropping.

      unfortunately i am a gamer on a plus side this new adsl modem seems to do the trick though it does drop the connection randomly* - a quick disconnect and reconnect works as a quick fix

      * now managing 2-3 days up time before it drops
