The DNS Server Isn't Responding

I know a lot of people has posted about the same issue but none of the fixes work for me. My internet was working fine but since I got a new modem (Motorola SBG6580) the internet started to not work for a few minutes at a time but now it doesnt work at all. All of the sudden it started working again for about an hour and then it stopped working again. I have tried flushing the dns, renewing my IP, disabled firewall and anti virus. When I troubleshoot the connection I get this message "The DNS Server Isn't Responding". When I map my connection it shows that Im connected to the internet:

Your ipconfig /all output looks good on the Wireless one, wired shows disconnected. Is your issue on a wireless connection?
Do you have the latest drivers for your Network Adapters? You might want to verify that.

How's your wired connection?

Your dns addresses are pointing to comcast DNSSEC servers which looks like they are still fairly new so there could still be bugs being worked out by Comcast and it's partners with it. Which is fine, maybe you should add additional dns servers as it's possible Comcast's servers could be having temporary issues. Trying using opendns, google dns or even norton has public dns servers now. Just google them and you can get their dns addresses to add to your config. If that doesn't help contact comast as it could be your modem having intermittent issues.

Did you try to change the dns address in the router as well? Possably in the modem as well?

No because the other computers on the same network work fine. The.problem is just with my computer.
