We have been in our house for about 7 months and had no issues until about a month ago. Every night at exactly 9:03 we lose Internet/experience extreme slowness for about 1 hour. Websites load extremely slowly or not at all off and on during this hour period. There will also be periods, a few minutes at a time where it works perfectly. Speed tests, when we are able to connect during this period, show up fine. The lights on the modem and router show no indication of a problem. It almost behaves as if cox was throttling my bandwidth or something huge was downloading clogging my connection, as far as I know nether is the case. We have called cox multiple times, have had a tech out and had our own audio video person out to no avail. We have replaced both our router and modem. Our router is an AirPort Extreme so I am not sure how to show any logs. The level 2 tech support suggested it could be interference from neighbors so we tried changing router Chanel's and that did not help. Cox has said everything that they can see shows no problems. I am out of ideas other than changing ISPs. What could be causing service issues at the exact same time every night? I am not an router/modem expert and I have a pretty complicated set up involving a control 4 set up by professionals. The control 4 people have told us there is no issue with any of that equipment nor would it cause this type of problem even if there was. I just don't even know where I can turn for help at this point. The professionals we have talked to cannot even hypothesize what the problem is any more.
The speed tests were taken during that hour period. It will work perfectly fine for maybe 1-5 minutes then not load at all. I can't take a speed test during the intervals it's not working as the page won't load.
The other thought I had was could it have something to do with lease renewal. Truthfully, I don't even know what that it, but it's set to once a day by default, so maybe it's doing it at that time every day. We have not changed any settings or anything like that so I don't know why suddenly the defaults wouldn't work.

Could you explain? Does it start at 9:03p and not work for 5min, then start working for 5min and then stop for the rest of the hour? Or is it just random, but never starting BEFORE 9:03p?

A IP issue wouldn't cause a intermittent issue I don't think. It would just break and not work until you did something like reboot your modem or router. You can check the logs though, should be available here or somewhere at 192.168.100.1. Look for any logs from a bit before and after 9:03p. It will be military time, so 21:03. If you post any logs, be sure to remove the CM-MAC.
It's just random, but never starts before 9:03 and last about an hour (for as long as I've been tracking the issue, it never works at 903,and then is randomly unreliable for that time frame). I checked the logs and there isn't anything for that time frame or even for the past several days.
Think god I am not the only one. I am here for the same issue exactly. At 9PM the internet starts cutting out and get DNS errors. Sometimes pages load and sometimes it times out. Sometimes you will get where it works for 1-3 min then back to DNS timeout errors I am also in AZ in Queen creek area. Started 1 month ago. Using surfboard 6141 and latest Apple airport extreme
