Hi, I have the new sb8200. Did a self activation and looks like all went well. Over 200 megs down and over 10 megs up. The problem is that the 2 blue lights do not come on, to tell me that i'm connected to DOCSIS 3.1

My firmware is D31CM-PEREGRINE-1.0.1.0-GA-01-NOSH.

I live in the 22840 zip code area. Does Comcast have Docsis 3.1 in my area? And I have Blast for my speed. 

I guess the real question is, will you get Docsis 3.1 on lower tiers, like Blast. 

 

Thanks for any and all help

I'm having the same results with the SB8200 and I suspect you are right that Comcast hasn't fully implemented the Docsis 3.1 standard.  If you read Arris documentation/forums it looks like the modem is backward compatible to 3.0 and being certified in this case means they are provisioning the DOCSIS 3.0 standard transmit and recieve.  I bought my SB8200 because of the 2 - 1GB ports.  Are they working for your imlementation?  Did you get two IPDADDRESSes?

"I guess the real question is, will you get Docsis 3.1 on lower tiers, like Blast."

A modem will lock on to a DOCSIS 3.1 carrier *if one is actually present on the local system* regardless of one's subscribed to speed tier.
