      I've not heard of this problem before

      My guess is maybe you've got a poor connection somewhere in your local wiring causing intermittent noise bursts, or maybe something like a branch blowing around in the wind and messing up an overhead line to the exchange, or maybe a router glitch causing duff reporting?

      Easy thing first, power off your router for a couple of minutes and see if it still happens when you power back up.
