My Wi-Fi goes out at the same time every night

Hello,
I'm not sure if this is a coincidence, the xb6 doing a nightly software upgrade or whatever it is. Every night at around 3a.m. my wi-fi goes down for about 10-15 minutes before coming back on on its own. I know 3a.m. is late, but I work overnights and Ive been working at home lately due to COVID. Its been severely interrupting my work. Does anyone else experience this? Should I swap out my router?

FWIW, the overnight hours are indeed their window of opportunity for performing network maintenance / upgrades.

There is a feature on Xfinity XB6 routers called Downtime that intentionally turns the internet connection off. It's a courtesy reminder from Comcast that you should start thinking about going to bed.
