Connectivity question - modem to comp, but not router to comp?

thrash30
Having some issues with internet connectivity and am seeking some possible whys as to my continued problem. Working with Charter cable at my home and have been getting extremely spotty connectivity - but only in certain situations. When I connect directly from the modem provided by Charter into my computer the connection works and lasts. When I use a router however the connection will last for only 5-10 minutes before going out in which unplug/replug the modem to regain connection eventually to repeat the same process.

I thought it was definitely a router issue but I am now on my third router (tried one I had from home, borrowed an old unit from a friend, and just bought a new router - Dlink) and am still having the same problem. I cannot figure out why this persists and need some suggestions as to what it could be! Thank you.
