Internet connectivity

Message 1 of 2

My problem has been stemming since I had Fios installed this past March:

 

Intermittently, I lose internet connection.  It can happen a few times a month, multiple times a week, or even multiple times a day.  It can last anywhere from minutes to hours.  My router has the white globe indicator light to signify connectivity; when my connection is down it changes from blinking white to solid red.  I use the trouble shoot options through the app where the ONT is reset.  sometimes it's successful on the first try.  I normally have to reset the connection multiple times.  There's often times where it never works and I have to just wait for the connection to come back.

 

I had a service tech come out in April.  he couldn't diagnose the problem or find a solution.  he got on the phone with support and they said they've recently discovered an issue of an ONT firmware upgrade that causes the outages.  no timetable for the upgrade was given.  

 

June arrives and I'm still having the issue.  I call tech support and they were not aware of any firmware upgrade issue.  they couldn't diagnose the problem or find a solution either.  All they could do was bill me for days/hours of service missed.  

 

It's now July and last week I was losing connection every day for hours at a time.  I've tried trouble shooting it and saw a new option of checking the coax cable.  However, I don't have a coax cable connected to my router, only an ethernet cable.  

 

This has been getting extremly frustrating especially seeing as how my wife will be working from home soon and an internet connection is absolutely needed.  Can someone please help me or point me in the right direcion?
