Have you only been using the one modem all the time? If so can you get to try a different modem somehow?
I'd suspect your modem might have some bad capacitors and is really struggling when first powered up. It improves when warmed up, but you say after up to an hour of pre-activation it still occasionally loses the connection? That sounds like it never gets up to 100% reliable operation.

Well, I just leave my modem (2Wire on AT&T) on all the time, unless I'm gone for a few days or longer.
But if I have it turned off and my computer on, I just have to wait about 5 minutes for it to get a connection, then all is well.
I can't really explain why yours is doing what it is doing. Bad capacitors might seem more likely to me if it failed all the time...but it doesn't. Only if both are turned on simultaneously.
Personally, I don't see any reason to turn off a modem if you use your computer everyday.

What, better than 100% up?
Now my connection NEVER goes down.
I wonder if Frontier will be any better?
