Yep, sounds familiar. Verizon's path to resolution is generally:

 

1) Replace router

2) Reset/replace ONT

3) Replace STBs

4) Check connections, data stream and wire integrity

 

For me at least, none of these solved the problem. I'm hopeful that turning of UPnP (see above) will solve the issue. I'm currently at 21hrs, 26mins without an interruption since doing so. 

 

Please let us know how it goes for you.

Exactly the same issue with all on this thread.  Check the previous posts from us and you'll see the ridiculous troubleshooting we have gone through.  g00py and I have tried a couple different things recently beginning at around the same time a couple of days ago.  We are both active in trying to find what is going on and are posting udpates as soon as we have anything to report.

Oh, I read this entire thread. And the threads at DSLReports, which I why I have little faith that swapping out the router is going to do the trick.

On a personal note, I'd like to thank Verizon for the completely unwanted crash course in network engineering. Way I see it, they should be paying me for providing customer support to myself.

Well, I'm not going to go down the rabbit hole of fixes for this. If the new Actiontec router doesn't solve the problem, I'm getting my own third-party router. I only have one FiOS DVR (free for life) in my setup and that's in a room where it gets used maybe 10 times a year. So I'll keep the Actiontec handy for when a guest uses that room and needs to watch TV.

sangs: That's probably the most aggravation-free solution, to be sure. If you go third-party, please let us know how the switch from coax to ethernet goes. I'd be interested to see how intensive the rewiring is and whether you notice a performance boost afterward.

I'm already provisioned for Ethernet g00py. Did it about two years ago when I didn't have FiOS TV. Very painless procedure. You just call them up and they walk you through the steps. Took 10 to 15 minutes tops (not counting the half-hour it took me to thread the Cat6 cable through my basement drop ceiling). As for peformance, I'm on the 50/35 plan and I consistently get 59/38.

THE UPNP Option did not work for me. I even rebooted the router after I made the changes

I'm sorry to hear that.  Have you had the the ONT replaced?  That would be the final thing to do as I believe you posted earlier that you have tried replacement routers already.
