Is this a problem with my router?

Hello there, I hope someone can help me shed some light on this problem I've been having.

Basically I have a Thomson TG585v7 ADSL Router and sometimes when I am playing an online FPS like TF2 and the phone rings, I get huge lag spikes followed by my internet disconnecting. I go over to the router and find the internet light is off and when I try to log into the router via the default gateway it can't connect suggesting that the ethernet isn't connected as if the router is rebooting or something. Often if I just leave it be for a minute or so, the internet reconects but sometimes it can be down for up to 20 minutes... very annoying when it happens in the middle of a PCW.

Has this happened to anyone else?
Am I right in thinking that the router is dodgy?

Thanks in advance!

Do you have DSL filters on all your phones?

No, the downstairs phone doesn't have one. Is that what the issue is do you think?
