Before giving up on the current AirPort Express, I would recommend that you perform a complete power recycle of your networking equipment to see if this fixes the issue you are seeing. Please post back your results.
If the problem returns, the next step that I would recommend is to have Cox run a "line check" between their service and the Broadband router that they provided you. Sometimes the signal quality to the cable modem is not up to par and could be the cause as well.
Finally, if they verify that the signal is good, then try connecting one of your computers directly to the modem via an Ethernet able. You could use the one that connects the Express to the modem. Does the problem still exist? If it does, then it could be the modem and I would ask Cox for a replacement. If not, then as you suspect it may be the AirPort Express.

I did the "complete power recycle". When I turned the ipad on it didn't auto connect to the right network, so I manually chose the right network and it did connect. I'll call Cox and have them check the line tomorrow!
