Netflix and other apps drop connection

When watching any app on the xfinity box the connection to the app drops.  You have to reenter the app to continue viewing.  Have reset the internet, the box itself, replaced the box but it doesn’t work.  Apps work on smart tv and iPad.   At times apps won’t load at all but resetting box fixes that error.   With what I’m paying for service it is frustrating the only answer to the problem was replacing box which as stated didn’t work.  Reading the forum it seems this problem has existed for some time.   Is there a fix?
