Internet connection dropping

We moved to a new location about a month back and things were mostly okay. Around a week or so ago, our gigabit internet connection started to drop. The only way out was to reset the modem and router. 

 

the frequency of internet dropping connection has increased dramatically today. Can someone help?

 

Modem is Arris surfboard, netgear wireless router.

 

thanks,

vik

Re: Internet connection dropping

Hello, @vikramgopalan can you describe your error in more detail? When your connection drops and you are in your browser do you get this message? “ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED”

Do you have the XB6 xFI Advanced Gateway? 

If so probably related to the same issues I am having. I wrote a post as well describing more info with DNS issues: https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Your-Home-Network/Comcast-DNS-Issues-XB6-XFI-gateway/td-p/3376054
