The blue light represents that your channels are bonded for better through put. 192.168.100.1. That will take you to the information pages of your cable modem. From there you can browse through the pages and you will see 4 downstream channels bonded together. Basically, you have been upgraded to DOCSIS 3.0

It could be only two or three channels in some areas..

If both Send and Receive are blue, he has upstream channel bonding as well, which is unusual (not bad).

The thing is when the tech installed my HSI he uses an old coax I only get BLUE light on RECEIVE, but last night I saw a brand new coax that comes with my cable converter, so I used that one, which I got the BLUE light on SEND, Im just wondering should I leave it alone or put back the old coax? Thanks!

Agree! If I recall correctly the send/receive light flashes blue so I was thinking the OP was looking at the wrong light? Maybe a sign of some upcoming changes?

I would leave the new cable. Would you mind posting us a screenshot of »192.168.100.1/cmSignal.htm ?

Thanks!

Well how about that, let alone two he's got three bonded upstream carriers. This is the first time I've seen that. They may be still testing in his area.

Well you have two 64qam upstream channels and one 16qam upstream, not bad at all. You should be able to hit close to 25-30mbps on the upstream, but right now only powerboost. Still nice to have more then one upstream channel.

ya but im still not happy with my speed though,I have Blast 20mbps/Comcast service, because I only hit 15-20 mbps speed wirelessly and 20-30 mbps speed wired!
My router that is connected to sb6120 is Buffalo WHR-G300N..I think I should get more speed over 30 mbps with that docsis 3.0. What you guys think?

Well run shaperprobe, and see what results you can come up with »www.cc.gatech.edu/~partha/diffpr···obe.html . Don't expect same speed results over wireless compared to wired, to many things to factor in.

make sure u have everything on wireless n. if ur on wireless g u will have issue with speed.

do u not get over 20 meg on power boost on a wired pc?

tbh power boost isnt that great anyway, last for like 10 seconds anyway. i would be more worried about staying at the 16 meg your line should stay stable at.

You are only going to get the sustained rate caps that the modem is provisioned for no matter what the system actually has the capability to provide..

HOLY CRAP!!! UPSTREAM BONDING!!!

Can we get some shots of the "Configuration" and "Help" pages?

1) Would like to see the firmware & date and boot version.

2) Would like to see status of IP Mode, wondering if it is now at IPv6.

P.S. If your router's uplink port is gigabit capable, you should also get a blue light on ETHERNET. I have found that due to overhead, even a Fast Ethernet (100Mbps) port can create a bottleneck for data throughput depending on the manufacturer, where as Gigabit Ethernet provides sufficient overhead.

I believe this is a first here!

Now I'll be anxiously waiting to see if it hits here, and if there is any associated increase in the provisioned upstream...

I have no trouble getting a blue light on the uplink (Airport Extreme) ... now I want the Blue on the OTHER side!

I hope we are close!

We are supposed to have D3 here by sometime this summer, we'll see I guess.

Ah, I've been wondering when we were going to get it. I'm using a WRT54GL router, so all green here.

OP: Post some speedtests, I want to see what your upstream hits .

Ye I know I should've got a gigabit router capable. so I should've got blue light instead of amber, I just have Buffalo Nfiniti WHR-G300N v2
