I still do believe a new router would solve this issue the most efficiently.

same happens for android market too,when i search something,either it won't go trough at all(it tells me no connection,please reintry),or it will load the apps in the same way it does with youtube,just the name and no icon.if i try to download them,the download bar appears,but it won't show a percentage,it's just stuck on downloading.Also,it never loads the screenshots for the app.
when the routed has this bad habit of not working,other internet related apps don't work either.for example,google maps will not load,even if it loads,it will load the cached maps and will not allow me to zoom in on an uncached part of the map.for opera mini,when i touch "search google" and type something,after searching it says no connection.
Strangely enough,dailymotion app works anytime,even when the roiuter doesn't work.
... found out that restarting my cellphone will not allow me to use any internet related app(except dailymotion and the browsers)for an extended period of time,ranging from 3 hours to 1 day.
So,has anyone any ideea how to fix it?I still don't know if the router of the celphone is the blame,but i tested my cellphone on other routers and they worked 100% of the times,and i didnt get these stupid errors.
If his phone was losing connection to the router, he wouldn't be able to access the router's interface from the phone, which he can. So it's not like his phone is dropping the wifi connection. Being able to access the router(from the phone) but not the Internet, *usually* points to a problem with the ISP. Although he states the Internet continues to work on his PC, which points me in the direction, that the problem lies with the phone(according to the original post, only certain apps are affected, mainly google apps, YouTube, maps etc), an incorrectly configured router, or a crowded wifi channel.
Judging by the router's interface screenshot, it doesn't appear to be an older router (it is also wireless N). I'm betting a hard reset of the router will fix it. IMO a lot more info is needed before a new router should be purchased.
