Thomson SpeedTouch 780WL(i), and that is/was also the problem. I flashed it with different firmware versions and got different results everytime. i bought me a
Sitecom 300N XR router & PCI card and all works perfectly now.

what worked for me

i know i had that same problem and i fixed it by setting my MTU and enforcing the use of that MTU value through my routers settings. You can visit and use their tcp/ip analyzer to check for MTU value recommendations
