    ok..then it's most likely going to be your cable modem that's at risk here. try to use the reset button on the back of the modem, if there is one, or call your comcast support folks. It's not likely to be your computer, from what I've gathered.

My dns isnt set it says. how do i fix it?

The wireless access point isn't passing DNS to your laptop. Go in an manually assign as the DNS setting.

Type ncpa.cpl into the Start menu search box or hit the Windows key + R at the same time and type it in that box. Right click on the wireless connection and select Properties. Go down to TCP/IP and select it. Click Properties. Enter in the Preferred DNS server box and click OK. Click OK on the Wireless Connection Properties box.

Edit- Reboot your laptop with those new settings. I'll check back in about 45 when I get home to see if you are still having problems.

2nd Edit - Type ncpa.cpl into the Start menu search box again to bring up the Network connections screen. Right click on the Wireless connection and select Diagnose. Let me know if that takes care of it.

What is the firmware version of DNS-323? Many bugs were fixed in recent firmware revisions. You can see your version in the top right corner in the web interface after you log-in. See on the D-Link website if there is a newer firmware available.
When it doesn't work, what you have to do to make it work? Reboot windows? Or reboot the DNS-323? It can also be issue with your firewall or Windows configuration. Which Windows version do you use?

Constant intermittent loss of connectivity, even with new gt704wg router

It might be that you have a voltage drop. I noticed that this modem is very sensitive to voltage 'dips' and it will 'reset' itself if even the slightest dip in power hits it.
I have a A/C that sucks power when it cycles and every time it does I lose the internet connection. So I set up a 12 volt battery with an DC to AC inverter and run the modem off of battery power.

That might be the problem your having.
