Frequently my Asus router disconnects and loses signal and it takes a while to actually regain signal and sometimes I have to power cycle the modem. I had no idea why until recently I accessed the router admin page and saw that the internet section said: Your ISP’s DHCP does not function properly so I google around and realized that Asus routers have a DHCP Query Frequency setting and the default is “Aggressive“. Spectrum being the POS that it is sounds like it blocks the device from getting an IP address from too frequent polling. So I switched that setting to “Normal” as the suggestion on the links below and it appears to have fixed the problem!
