Just upgraded to DOCSIS 3.1 modem, very slow upload speed

Hi, 

 

At the behest of Comcast, I upgraded a fairly new DOCSIS 3.0 modem to the Motorola MB8600 (3.1). Download speed is 175Mbps+, but upload speed is around 1-2Mbps (see test snapshot below). I have tried power cycling the modem and a hard reset (holding the recessed reset button down for 30 secs).

I can ping the modem's administrative IP (192.168.100.1), but can't reach the web page - nmap shows tcp/80 and tcp/443 as "open/filtered". I've also tried putting the router on the same subnet (192.168.100.2), but that doesn't seem to work either. 

 

Any ideas? Maybe the CMTS gear needs tweaking?

Have you tried reaching the admin page with a direct connection to the 8600 (no router in the mix) ?
