I recently started using a cloud backup service. The initial upload takes weeks, probably, and originally used the full 6MB upload capacity. I started having problems where the internet connection dropped, which were solved by power cycling the modem. The backup service support person suggested dialing back the program to use 1MB upload, and since then the internet connection has not dropped. As I am supposed to get 6MB, this seems like a problem.
The upstream power levels I get are 38–42 dBmV, which is low. (Downstream S/N are 36–37 dB.)
The error log shows messages like this:
MIMO Event MIMO: Stored MIMO=-1 post cfg file MIMO=-1;CM-MAC=94:cc:b9:d0:42:8d;CMTS-MAC=00:9e:1e:58:cd:d2;CM-QOS=1.1;CM-VER=3.0;
Seems like there is one of these for each power reset message.
Due to when the 6121 was released it's getting a bit long in the tooth / EOL\EOS potentially as well.
If you can login and grab a snapshot of the power/snr levels from the modem admin page that would be helpful to see if there's a potential line issue or a splitter gone wrong.
Hello cbfiddle. I can assist with troubleshooting your upload performance issues. I'd like to start with performing a diagnostics test against your modem. Please send me a private message and include your full name, service address, and account number so I can access your account.

FWIW, no they are not low. They are o/k.
Comcast should be helping you on the RF issues..

I agree @ArrisTuska. I am waiting on the private message to be able to access the account, per our security policy.
Three days ago, a Comcast tech came out and replaced a cable.
The modem worked fine for two days after that, but froze 3 times yesterday. When frozen, even the modem admin page does not respond. I have attached the modem status information.
@cbfiddle, We apologize you are still experiencing issues. Can you please retest today and provide new speed test results? I also responded to your private message.
I also observe that the hangs almost always occur when I am web browsing (and the cloud backup is uploading). Makes me think there is some sort of conflict between the two activities.

Hi cbfiddle. I would like to poll out CMTS again for the historical signal plots. Due to our security policy so that I can access your account, please send me a private message and include your full name, service address, and account number so I can assist you.
