This shouldn't occur with any sort of regularity. Being in a new house with coax and Ethernet, the problem isn't likely to do with your in-home wiring. In fact, with Ethernet to your STB, it really shouldn't happen at all. This, to me, sounds like you have flaky DSL service, or your router is losing sync and/or IP. My suggestion to help troubleshoot would be that when you lose signal next, quickly (before it re-syncs or get a new IP) go check your router (V1000H) and look in particular at the DSL light (assuming you're on DSL and not fibre, fibre would be the Ethernet WAN light). If that light is out, your DSL lost sync (shouldn't happen). If that light is on, check the 'globe icon' labeled Internet, if that light is out, your router lost it's IP address (again, shouldn't happen). Knowing a few of these details can help folks offer guidance and help techs to get to the bottom of your issue. In my experience it doesn't sound to me that a rip/replace of your hardware will fix the issue, I'm thinking it's more network related based on the information you provided. Best of luck to you, I wouldn't want my signal lost on any sort of regular basis.
