So I noticed a strange thing with the channel bonding of my Arris 8200 modem. I recently upgraded to the Gigabit internet, and instead of renting a modem, I decided to save the monthly fee and purchase my own modem. It took a few days and one service tech trip to get me going at relatively good speeds (936 Mbps down), which I thoroughly enjoy. However, when I looked at the status of the modem, I noticed that the channels didn't start at 1 and go through 32. It starts at 17 and goes through 48, which is 32 channels, yet on the upstream side, it's only showing 4 channels being bonded instead of 8. This explains why the light is only green for my upstream side instead of blue if it were bonded on all 8 channels. What's going on with this? I'm near Houston, if that helps any.
