Recently moved and transferred over my 150/10 service. I started out with some weird power numbers, so I looked outside and removed some uncapped splitters as I only need one connection. This seems to have dialed in my power a bit.
Internet for the most part seems fine, but I have noticed an usually high number of correctables and uncorrectables. I spoke to technical support when doing the transfer and they said they showed no issues. Is this something I should worry about?
Also, only 3 out of the 4 upstreams are locked? I believe it was like this at my old place and brought over the same modem. Is the upstream power too low?
Can't see your pic. Since you are a new poster, it likely needs to be approved by a Forum Admin.
You could try hosting it at one of those free third-party pic hosting sites and post the link to it here.
The correctables are not a problem. The uncorrectables are not really numerous on those few channels depending on the total uptime of the modem since the last reboot. The majority of the channels are clear. The stats are o/k / in spec.
Some local systems still offer only 3 upstream channels.
I believe the modem had an uptime of 1-2 hours when I took this screenshot.
The coax wires are run outside the house under the eaves of the roof. ATT's DSL wires run parallel and touch the coax along the run. Could this cause noise/interference? Should I cut the wires coming from the ATT box as I don't use any of their services?
The stats are in spec as stated earlier but there are indeed a good amount of errors. But if it's not causing any problems that you notice, and the service is performing as expected, then there is nothing to sweat about. If you are concerned about it then you may want to have a tech out to investigate further.
The signal stats are o/k but the error log entries and the bit errors indicate that something is going on. Perhaps there is noise ingress into the line(s) 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 !
