Zoom/Teams/WebEx Audio cuts out randomley

Over the last month during Video conferences my Audio will cutout for 5 to 10 seconds several times during a meeting. This happens across all my devices (Windows OS, Chromebooks and IOS/Android) when using Microsoft Team, Zoom and WebEx. Its happen if they are hardwired to the Comcast router or Wifi. I'm only using Comcast equipment and have rebooted the router multiple times.

I have used all 3 with few problems. It might be from RF interference in your home/location used.

Do you have fast enough broadband to handle all devices in your location?

What do the modem's signal stats look like ? Try getting them here; http://192.168.100.1 or here http://10.0.0.1


Please post the *Downstream Power Level*, the *Upstream Power Level*, and the *SNR* (Signal to Noise Ratio) numbers.

What is the exact make and model number of the modem ?

Everything is good. Perhaps there is noise ingress into the line(s) /  an upstream channel-return path impairment somewhere.

There are other signal stat figures that can't be read by the modem. They are the "Upstream Rx Power" (Upstream Receive Power Level), the "Upstream SNR Ch." (Upstream Signal To Noise Ratio), and the "Upstream ICFR" (In Channel Frequency Response). These are as equally important in diagnosing connectivity issues as are the modem's stats.


I'm going to escalate your issue to the Comcast corporate employees that are available to these boards. They will be able to poll the CMTS to see whether or not everything is in the green zone, see your node / cable plant and modem health, and also see a history plot for the modem. You should get a reply here in your topic. Good luck !

Thanks for confirming this for me and for your patience, George. It is a pleasure to meet you! As a customer myself, I understand the importance of having your internet services working correctly. Can you tell me if you have checked if you are experiencing the same issue while connecting hardwired directly to the modem?

Yes, I was hardwired all day today and most days but I did test both.

Yes, this has happened to me also every day, throughout the day, for the past 5 weeks. I don't think the answer lies in the equipment, set-up, router/modem location, or peak hours. I also only use Xfinity equipment, and it was set-up by an Xfinity technician. I've talked to customer service, and they said relocating the router wouldn't help anything since my apartment is so small it should give great service no matter the location. I've also tried hardwiring and wireless, and the issue is the same. It also happens at all hours, even when I'm the only person using the internet in my apartment and early in the morning (e.g., 7 A.M.) when the overall traffic in the apartment building would likely be lower. Please share anything that you've found that helps.

Hi, . Sorry to hear that you're experiencing a similar situation with your connection. We want to help! Feel free to create your own post with a summary of your situation/experience and we will be happy to help from there. If you're familiar with posting your signal levels from your modem logs, that would help too. Thanks!

Hello All,

I was upgraded to 1 gig service 2 years ago however, the modem could not handle this speed.  I never experienced an issue until now and have been utilizing video calls for 3 years now.

Yesterday, xFinity came out to replace my cable modem to a newer style Modem that can handle the higher speeds and, I now am experiencing this problem which is an indication that a setting on the Cable Modem is the issue.....

This really should be taken to another separate thread for the second poster.
