HomeKit Phillips Hue was disappearing

HomeKit Phillips Hue was disappearing

I have a problem where my Hue Bridge doesn’t answer from Homekit. The Hue app still shows my bridge as connected and controls the lights seamlessly on wifi and remotely. But the Home app says all my lights aren’t responding. This usually happens once a day and I go and reset my Arris router and everything works for about 15 hours.

I have an Arris XB6 modem gate, then an airport in bridge mode. The Hue Bridge connects via ethernet to the airport and I also use wifi from my airport.

Any help is appreciated.
