Default router dropping DNS service

My WNDR4000 will run fine but will drop the DNS service intermittently. I can communicate with the router wired and wirelessly but cannot resolve http addresses. In the logs below show I can ping the a valid address - the first ping packet is dropped but the following packets succeed?

Current Firmware is V1.0.0.82_8.0.71
DNS set to get DNS from ISP (Comcast) automatically.

Don't suspect my ISP yet as I had a very stable connection prior to this router.

Got home from work today and the DNS had dropped again. I can go to Basic Setting and execute "Test" and that will restore the DNS (suppose that is a reboot).

Any ideas to resolve this would be greatly appreciated!

Here is a log prior to the reboot:

COMMENT: Didn't quite understand this - I can ping the address but it consistently will drop the first ping packet, while the other succeed??
