Having lots of ping drops in 95132

We have been experiencing lots of ping drops in 2 days already.

We tried reboot the modem multiple times.  Also did a factory reset and reconfigure everything. Still no luck.

Any suggestions?

FWIW, DNS servers may not be a good target for pinging as some of them are deliberately configured to rate limit / de-prioritize ICMP packet based ping probes. So you'll see lots of timeouts there. Try pinging www.google.com instead.

Is this with a WiFi connection ? If so, for a test, does a computer that is hardwired directly to the router / gateway device with an ethernet cable have the same problem ?

With this test, we are trying to isolate this from being either a WiFi-only problem or a problem with the general connection to the Comcast system which would of course affect both. It's a good first step of troubleshooting before proceeding any further.

The issue has been fixed after ~36 hours.

I have no detail what Comcast did. My Internet was down for ~2 hours then everything came back up without any issue.
