Just a thought, as I just got one of those things myself (Actiontec), and the 
manual doesn't recommend running the internal firewall and a software 
firewall on the client computers.  I turned off the Actiontec firewall as it 
was less configurable than the one on my computer.

As for why it takes some time for a problem to occur, it may be that it works 
fine until something triggers both firewalls incompatibly.
