Nighthawk AC1900 WiFi Cable Modem Router (C7000v2)
I've had issues for 6+ months with download speeds tanking. I replaced the old router and it persisted and gradually became more frequent. Xfinity finally sent a Tech out a week and a half ago after telling me it's my router over and over. The Tech verified that it was the line outside and spent an hour and a half running a new line. Speeds were great for about 3 days and now they're tanking again. On the off chance, it actually is my router I hope someone could check the information out. It's been years since I've had to decipher this and I'm going cross-eyed. I don't want to play the blame game if, in fact, it could be on my end. Just not having a lot of trust since it was 6 months of them telling me all my routers were bad ><. I purchased this one in August 2020. Firmware is the latest and greatest.

I appreciate any help.
Downstream power levels and SNR are borderline to out of spec (way too low), and the upstream power levels are borderline (too high). The symptoms could mean a bad modem/router, but are more likely due to poor coax connections or damaged coax cable, usually in or near your home.
If you want to troubleshoot this yourself, please see Internet Troubleshooting Tips. If you can't find the problem, insist that Comcast send another tech out (preferably a competent one) 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.
Keep leaning on them 'till they fix it!
