Multiple connection drop outs with DHCP error
Yesterday Comcast had a short outage in my area. Since then I have had numerous connection drop outs. Checking the logs on my router I see the following message:
"Your ISP DHCP is not functioning properly."
I have tried rebooting modem and router. I disconnected power from the modem for 5 minutes before reconnecting.
Calling support has not proved helpful. The first person I talked to put me on hold and never came back, the second person tried to help but could not fix the issue and the third person did not help because I am not using a Comcast provided modem.
I found this on the Xfinity forum:
Would this solution apply to my issue as well?

Hello, I hope my reply reaches you at a good time and your day has been a good one! I am sorry about the trouble with your modem or router after the service interruption. A loss in connection can happen for more than one reason but a re-activation may resolve the issue. I can get this done and take a closer look at your account. Are you able to send a private message so I can locate the account? Please include your name exactly as it appears on your account, your full-service address, and your account number? (or phone number)
