Internet Service Interruptions with Netgear C6250-100NAS and "Unicast Maintenance Ranging" errors

Hello!

 

We have been experiencing sharp and sudden interruptions to our home network service (which has been operating just fine for well over a year with the equipment we have).

 

I have a Netgear C6250-100NAS as Modem and WiFi router.

 

The following error(s) in the Netgear Event Log were coincident with today's interruption. What would be the best path(s) to remedy this situation?

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

The stats should be somewhere near that area where you got that error log entry.

 

See if they are somewhere in here;

I've checked everywhere and those statistics are not available for my router's admin console.

 

Is there a third party app I could download and run for free to ascertain the same?

I downloaded NetSpot and it's telling me my SNR is about 50% on average. That's based on the Wifi though. I'll see if I can find something for the router itself/wired connection.

No, but you can call in to 1800comcast and ask a rep to check them. Good luck !
