My wifi keeps dropping and immediately re-connecting. This just started in the past month. I have rebooted the router but that did not help.

Define router. Do you have a separate one or just the Viasat modem? Context matters.

The routers in built-in Viasat modems are not the best. You would be much better off with a third party router.

If you're connected via the 5GHz band, try using the 2.4GHz band to see if it makes any difference, as the 2.4GHz band has better range.  Conversely, if you're connected via the 2.4GHz band and your device(s) has the ability to utilize the 5GHz band (some don't), try using the 5GHz band to see if it makes any difference, as the 5GHz band is less susceptible to interference.
