Sudden, Frequent Cable Modem Reboots

I have had extrordinarily stable cable modem service from Comcast for many years, running on a SB6141 cable modem (customer owned).


About two weeks ago, I started having frequent, short lived outages... Several a day at random times, though it really seems to like to go down around 4:30pm.  However, I see the reboots happen at various other times.


My cable modem power and signal to noise levels are within spec and I get good upload/download speeds any time I've tested.


A sample of my logs looks like so:

What should I start looking at?
