Problems with Comcast and Arris TG862G/CT

A number of my neighbors have Comcast Triple Play, for which Comcast
rents them an Arris TG862 device.

Almost all of them complain of losing wireless interruptions.

They tell me that Comcast has come out to check wiring and in some cases
change the Arris for another TG862. Nothing seems to help.

Have any of you found a way to get Comcast to actually fix the problem?

Thanks.

I followed advice from another site that said to change the selected channel.  
You go to your modem settings. http://10.0.0.1 Log in. Go to Connection > Wifi > edit  > Channel Selection  change from Automatic to Manuel and then pick a number.
I have an android app that analyses Wifi info and there're settings for channels and how many people are using that channel and which is the best to select.  For me I selected channel 4.   So far so good.  Waiting to see if that really works.
