SYNC Timing Synchronization failure

Afternoon all,

 

While it doesn't happen on any consistent basis, when it starts, it drops the internet several times throughout multiple days rendering the internet useless.  I have my own cable modem that is showing the following logs:

I don't have any spliters on the line - the cable comes from the demarc box outside of the house directly into my modem using a single cable.  Last time I had comcast out, they noted that they couldn't see any issues and because I was running my own modem, there wasn't anything else they could do to help.  I was hoping you all may have some other suggestions for what I could do to keep my internet from dropping.  I'm not adverse to having a tech come out again, I'm just trying to see what else I can do on my end first.

 

Thanks
