It's worth doing the firmware update, but I don't expect it to help with your issue - and I'll say the same about a new router. Suggest you check what devices the HG659 says are connected, and make sure that is as expected - nobody has snuck something else onto your network. Could it be one of your users has installed some dubious software onto their PC? Or you've enabled/upgraded something to act as a DHCP server (maybe a Windows server)? May be worth posting to one of the more general forums to get more advice, this seems like more of a general networking issue to me.

One or more of your LAN devices is on a static LAN IP which is causing the conflict to occur when the modem issues the same IP dynamically to another device that latches. I have found it easier to have all the connecting devices on DHCP rather than worry about router settings, firmware.. etc
