The usual reasons for ADSL line going down are:
1/ Long distance to the phone central (for ADSL2+ that's >1000 meters)
2/ Bad cabling inside your home
3/ Intermittent/sporadic errors coming from the ISP (you can monitor
whether the drops are happening every day, at the same time...)
4/ The router. Zyxel's ones tend to be more stable and less prone to
dropping the line when they detect any incosistency (eg., bad values for
SN ratio, line attenuation...). You can check your current values from
the web interface.
