X1 boxes losing connection

Every single day at least once, at least one of my cable boxes brings up that it can’t establish an internet connection. It has done it 3 times just this evening and the wifi has turned itself off twice in the last 30 minutes. I’m tired of hearing “unplug and turn back on” every single time I call them....or “you know you can watch tv on your phone with the app”. I’m sorry, but I’m not spending all of this money every month to watch it on my phone and not one of the 4 televisions in my house. Anyone else experience any of this and found a solution? Seriously considering moving to fios at this point after 17 years...

Yes I've been having this happen many many times every day and night.  For me it really started on 4/30 when we had very high winds.  At that point I noticed it dropping internet (we watch our cable over our roku devices/internet and don't have cable boxes).  It drops anytime it is windy or rainy, and the last few nights has started dropping around 9pm.  Will drop for a few minutes, then come back on for a minute or 2 before dropping again, over and over all night long.  Also with mine I try to do a reboot with the app but always have to go unplug the router only to have the same thing continue to happen.  Super annoying considering how much we pay for the service.  I was trying to write this comment and my own post last night, but gave up since I could not get a connection to hold long enough.
