Wifi Router Disconnects Same Time Everyday. Log of DDOS attack right before it happens

I keep getting logs of [DoS attack: ACK Scan] from source 151.101.41.16,port 443 Saturday, Jun 20,2020 13:10:49 and shortly after my wifi crashes. Both m router and modem have to be reset for the wifi to go back up. I notice when I put my daughter down for nap around 1:30 - 2pm the wifi usually goes down. All other disconnections occur sporadic and often throughout the day.  Would the be a real DDos attack? What other possible things could be shutting down our connection. My router is on auto update and is running the latest firmware. My cable modem is a Netgear CM1000v2. The wifi is still visible on all devices but no internal connection is available.

It's possible that another wireless network is causing interference, and the home hub has forced a wireless channel change, that would cause devices to disconnect and then reconnect.
Do you have anything in your house on a timer, such as central heating, security lights, etc?

I have a couple LeD smart house lights but they aren’t connected to any WiFi. The only suspicion I have is I live in a gated community. My house is the first house right near the gate. Maybe 15 feet. I was told by person that works here that the gate is on a wireless network as well. None of the gate has wiring because it was too difficult to run wire underground. Can that cause it. If then what can I do? Move my router on the opposite side of the house ? How close does another device have to be in order to interfere with it? My router’s connection crashed numerous times today. One said DoS attack: Fraggle Attack. Should I be worried ?
