High number of uncorrectables and internet connectivity issues
I am having connectivity drops multiple times a day. It started about 2 years ago and would only happen occasionally but has steadily gotten worse. It currently happens 15+ times a day and has become nearly unusable. Speed test sites report no speed issues and when I am on the Xfinity connection test page, I can reload the page when the uncorrectables are stacking up and it says my connection is fine even though the page takes 30 seconds to load (seems kinda sketchy)
I tested the coax from the modem to the box outside and there are no shorts and only 1 splitter. The center cable is not open end to end or shorted to the shielding jacket, and the case is the same with the shielding jacket. The shielding jacket is grounded to the electrical meter outside. The coax was brand new when installed in 2017 and does not have any bends that are more than a moderately wide turn to go through the floor. The ethernet cable from the modem to the router is a Monster brand (140272-00) cat5E 3ft cable (bought brand new yesterday). I also replaced the splitter with a double male coax connector. I am very confident the cabling inside the house is good and not the issue. I have not tried a different modem but I have removed the router from the equation with no change. I do not believe there is any issue with the modem. Both the modem and the router were off and unplugged for well over an hour yesterday and I've rebooted them both within the past ~30 minutes.
