Currently, i have Nighthawk rax48 router, modem with 1 ethernet port, and Ring Alarm Pro base station which acts like a modem.

From a recommendation by Ring, the Ring base station is connected to the Modem (it has to be this way), and the router is wireless connected to Ring base station.
Within a year, i had a drop of internet connection twice due to "DNS not working". I do have the built in dynamic VPN on from the Router.

There gotta be a better and more efficient way of connecting my devices.
Any recommendations?

I am most definitely going to replace my Nighthawk Rax48. I'm sick of their 90 days free phone support. Right now, i'm in the market for Asus GT-AXE16000.
