Your modem is having trouble with the signal itself. Since the last time you rebooted your ActionTec it's lost the signal 15 times according to those statistics. You have a high uncorrectable error count on the line, the line speed is incorrect and your SNR values (Margins) are low.
First step into troubleshooting this is to locate your NID. It is the demarcation point between Verizon's copper network and your home's wiring, and can be either a Grey Box or it can be an older copper and tube device, and should be located near your electrical meter or breaker/fuse box. Newer NIDs often have a test jack found inside of them which allow you to connect DSL modems and Telephones to them for troubleshooting purposes. If you have a newer NID on your home, connect the DSL modem to this test jack found inside of the Customer Access portion of it, and pull up the new statistics you see fromthe modem for us to see.
In addition to that, if you have Voice Service, do you have any problems with static or humming on the line during a call?
Sounds like you've found it. That would be your NID, and yes it does date before the days of DSL modems. If you by any chance still have a corded phone around along with a DSL filter handy, you can try plugging the phone into any jack in your apartment and listening in on the line for noise. Verizon in many areas provisions dry loop DSL lines to give a fast busy signal despite not having phone service.
At this point, it might be best to get a tech out again to see what he can do to improve your DSL service. Perhaps replacing the NID with a newer one and running a dedicated CAT3 line to your modem (if allowed by the apartment manager) may help out.
