Cable Modem Not Connected

Hello I have recently been having issues with my internet service. For a few days it has been spotty , slow streaming speeds and slow web browsing. This is even with a wired connection. I went to the app and it said cable modem was not connected. I did the refresh signal and restarted the modem and it would work for a bit then go back to being slow. This evening I am not able to get any service on my home network. Xfinity wifi is working fine. But when when I try to go to a website I get the message "safari can't find the server- safari can't open the page because safari can't find the server. When I try to connect online to my PlayStation I get the error code " DNS error 80710102. I'm at wits end can someone please help.

Check to see if Comcast is reporting an outage for your area (see https://www.xfinity.com/support/cable-tv/outages-in-your-area/).

If no outage is reported and you want to troubleshoot this yourself, please see Connection Troubleshooting Tips. If you still need help, please provide Information Requested for Connection-Related Posts.

It's best to use an Ethernet cable connection if possible while checking the reliability of your connection to Comcast.

If you can't find the problem or you'd rather have Comcast do the troubleshooting, call them at the phone number on your bill or 1-800-Comcast, or chat with them using one of the "Trouble" options at https://www.comcastsupport.com/chatentry/. If they can't fix the problem remotely, insist they send a tech out to identify the cause and correct it.

If the tech finds bad coax, splitters, amplifiers, or connections in your home (even if Comcast originally supplied them) you'll probably have to pay for the visit unless you have or sign up for their Service Protection Plan (https://www.xfinity.com/support/account/service-protection-plan/, about $6/mo) and keep it for at least 60 days. If the trouble is due to a faulty Comcast modem, eMTA, gateway device, or anything outside your home, you shouldn't be charged.
