Re: Wow...

Pashune, Thanks I thought they looked off as well. I will try to get a tech out her tomorrow. Last time I called about modem stats they fed me a huge line of bull about those were acceptable.

No prob. Let us know how it works out!

Though they may not offer to send out a tech if they think your line is in OK shape.

Most of those numbers are still out of spec but they're definitely better than before, particularly your SNR and power levels. Be careful when summer shows up though; those high temperatures can push your upstream power level up and your downstream power levels down further.

If you can tolerate those levels for now, just leave it alone I suppose until a 'good' tech is willing to show up.

Looking better.

- Your SNR is definitely tolerable now, though still somewhat low
- The downstream power levels are within minimum range, but again, tolerable
- The upstream is still iffy, but if you're not getting any packet loss and you're receiving the speeds you pay for, don't worry about it.

Basically what I'm saying is if everything's working okay as far as speeds, packet loss, disconnects, etc. goes, don't worry about your line.

But if problems do arise in the future, have the line checked out again.

Nice! Your downstream power levels are nearly perfect, your SNR is a little better, and though your upstream power is still high, your stats do look better overall.
