iPhone hotspot for Internet seems to drop connections to random sites, which work with normal cable Internet

I’ve noticed a problem with the iPhone hotspot (at least on iPhone 5).  A site will suddenly start giving DNS errors and not be reachable again from that phone on any PC, even though I can bring up the site on the phone’s own Safari under LTE.  This has happened with cnn and eweek.  When my normal Xfinity returns (after a short outage) those sites can be reached again.
This paper on “OSX Daily” seems to describe a workaround, link here involving DHCP.
