ARRIS SB6190 - Internet keeps dropping

Hello all, 

 

This is my third Surfboard modem after ethernet port failures on the previous two and I am now having issues with this one.

 

For some reason the internet keeps dropping on my SB6190.  All of the lights stay lit up properly but, even directly plugged into my PC there is no internet.  This happens randomly and I am not sure where else to turn.  

 

I have done a hard reset on the modem and I'm waiting to hear back from Arris.  As far as I can tell, firmware updates are pushed directly from Comcast so I can't even manually reflash it.

 

Thanks,

NoMonitor

When you change the device a modem is connected to , you need to reboot the modem. Did you do that?

 

Network problems are often due to poor coax connections, usually in or near your home.

If you want to troubleshoot this yourself, please see Connection Troubleshooting Tips. If you still need help, please provide Information Requested for Connection-Related Posts, especially downstream power levels and SNR, upstream power levels, and error log.

If you can't find the problem or you'd rather have Comcast do the troubleshooting, call them at the phone number on your bill or 1-800-Comcast, or or use one of the options on https://www.xfinity.com/support/contact-us/. If they can't fix the problem remotely, insist they send a tech out to identify the cause and correct it.

If the tech finds bad coax, splitters, amplifiers, or connections in your home (even if Comcast originally supplied them) you'll probably have to pay for the visit unless you have their Service Protection Plan (https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/service-protection-plan, closed to customers that don't already have it). If the trouble is due to a faulty Comcast rental device, or anything outside your home, you shouldn't be charged.

Re: ARRIS SB6190 - Internet keeps dropping

Thanks for the response.  My last two posts contain most of what you requested.  The Arris tech I spoke to told me that my upstream power level is out of spec for the modem which may be causing the problem.  I ordered a new wall plate.  If that doesn't work, I will order new coax between the wall plate and the modem.  If that doesn't work I might try a power boost on the line but I don't really feel like spending $50'ish on one.   We shall see unless you have other suggestions. 

 

Comcast customer service was worthless.

Re: ARRIS SB6190 - Internet keeps dropping

Your upstream channels are too high and your downstream channels are getting close to being out of spec (too low). How much other equipment (video) do you have? Are there extra splitters that you can remove and help realign those levels? If not, having a tech out to troubleshoot may be a good thing
