You need to determin which of the 10 devices is hogging all the bandwidth and slap a 50% qos restriction on it.
Not only Apples run cloud.... Another hog is dropbox.
TWC needs to come out and fix whatever is causing the signal ingress and interference, It's probably bad outside connectors
Edit: Looked up what UPnP is used for, I don't need to connect to any devices in the network so turned it off. Enabled IPv4 protection and no DoS attacks showing up again.
Well, so far all those DoS attacks are gone, browsing seems better. Now, starting yesterday, I have been getting constant UPnP set events. Will get at least 4 per 30 - 40 seconds.

So it seems that the solution was either one of two things. Or maybe both. And I'm not entirely sure why but it seem to have worked.
I did two things:
A) Changed the modems time to the actual time since it was an hour behind
B) Plugged the modem into the wall outlet instead of the surge protector it had been plugged into.
Now if I can figure out how to get remote desktop and file sharing to actually work I'll be set. Thanks for all your help MsRaye.
Hey all, I think the problem is finally fixed. I called TWC again Thursday morning since the 2nd tech visit didn't fix the problem. I talked to tier 3 support for a while and told him what's going on. He actually saw the packet loss for himself when he was testing stuff. He scheduled another tech for Friday morning and left the tech specific notes about what's going on.
2 techs came to my house Friday morning and were here for about 3 hours checking stuff. One tech said he left a tester pinging from my incoming line and only saw 1 packet dropped out of about 3,000~ so they figured the problem was not outside my house. They replaced every splitter in the outside box and put new connectors on some of the cables. They showed me my old 2 way splitter and it would make a rattling noise if you shake it. They also noticed that one of the cables was sending noise back through the cable which could be causing problems for my signal so they disconnected that cable. We couldn't find the outlet for that cable so I have no idea where it is. They tested all the outlets in the house and said they were good. They also put coax terminators on all the unused outlets just in case.
I downloaded pingplotter and left it running for over 24hrs and only saw a few instances of minor packet loss and no spikes. I personally haven't noticed any lag either. My modem signal levels are still the same but now it only fluctuates maybe 0.10db once in a while and my SNR stays above 37.
So it looks like the problem is fixed and I'm happy now. Thank you for your time and help everyone that replied, especially you MsRaye!
If a legacy customer has WH-DVR service and wants to continue to have it, when they migrate to a Spectrum plan, it can remain enabled. If they have an issue with a piece of equipment, and that needs to be swapped, Spectrum is able to support it, and still uses the DVR and playback boxes in the field. Spectrum will just not install any new wh-dvr service, nor add the service to any existing accounts. The accounts do need certain coding for the MOCA service to be enabled, and since they are legacy codes, there are issues with migrations if they are left off by mistake. I would caution a subscriber that if they regularly use the WH-DVR feature, to ensure that whomever migrates their account, ensures it remains enabled, and not lost.
Spectrum did not build MOCA into its Worldbox platform, so it is not compatible with the WH-DVR product that TWC offered. (MOCA has a high frequency of truck rolls) There is a product in the works that will meet the need left open by this decision, but it is not mine to disclose, nor elaborate on at this time.
But many still have the Arris 3600, Moto 3510, and Cisco 9865 DVRs out there and their respective playbacks, so if a swap is needed, one can be found. Some lucky standard dvr customers get the 6 tuners by chance, not knowing that TWC charged extra for them a few years back.
Hope this helps!
that could be the problem, chewed up,corroded splitters/ grounding blocks will cause intermittents but levels are good.
Call this in as an intermittent problem, loss of connectivity & bird nest in outside TWC box....
If it's chipmunks or squirells, everything's chewed up...
