Internet connection disconnection

TiVoInternetConnectionFilter: Help me troubleshoot my internet connection's disconnections. For some reason when my computer is plugged into the router (which is plugged into the cable modem) the internet connection drops every 30-45 minutes. When it is wired directly into the modem, all is well. My TiVo connects wirelessly to the router. Is my favorite TV accessory causing my internet woes, and how do I fix it?

My suspicion is the TiVo's hourly connections to the TiVo service. How do I make TiVo not disconnect the computer? It really isn't a problem but I see the unstable internet connection via my "online time" on AIM, which is always very short. People who have me on their buddy list are annoyed with my constant "door opening" and "door closing" sounds. I could tell them to turn off the sounds, but lets try to figure this out on my end.
Specifics of the hardware:
Comcast Cable Internet + Motorola SB5100 Cable Modem + Wired connection to Netgear MR814v3 Wireless Router + TiVo connection via Netgear MA101 USB wireless adapter = Random Internet disconnections every half hour to hour.
