I will give you my inputs to your first question.

The simplest way to check if there is an issue with the router is to use a different one.. I personally use Netgear DGN1000 which is  for a DSL connection and it works great for me. You can use any other if you want to check if the connection is stable. The way you have described the issue, it points to a router malfunction at first glance but if you can flash some more light on it, you might get an exact solution.

> I'm hosting a tor relay at home.
> My router is a Fritz-Box  (this one: http://avm.de/service/fritzbox/fritzbox-7362-sl/uebersicht/ ) and the internet connections is really unstable.
> Frequently the connection breaks. Not only to the internet, also the local network is down till the router reboots.
> Is there a better solution for routing a DSL connection?
> A better router or a way to replace the router with the computer running the tor node.
> Any hint is appreciated.
> Thanks in advance!
> Another question:
> If I'm acessing my side through a .onion address theres no need for ssl/https as the traffic is encrypted anyways, right?
