Moto 6120 stats what is normal for a moto 6120?
For DOCSIS 3 and the SB6120
Signal to Noise Ratio should be ~ 35dB
The Downstream Power Level should be as close to 0dBmV as possible, Acceptable Range generally is between -10dBmV to +10dBmV
Upstream Power Level should not be greater than 40dBmV
Your Downstream is too Low @ -11 and -14dBmV
Your Upstream Power Level is too High @ 50dBmV
You need a Tech to come out and adjust signals or check your connections and remove excess splitters to see if the levels change.

This user gave you some bad or misinformation and if he thinks what he posted he should not respond at least to signal levels for a cable modem.Your receive is out of spec by at least 4 db your SNR is desired at 35 and better in a D3 area and 33 in other areas.Your transmit is not out of spec but the way things look you have multiple splitters,splitters configured wrong,or bad splitters but 52 in a D3 area is considered the edge with 55 being out of spec.It can go down to 35 but I and many others don't like seeing below 40 and with that modem maybe 43 to 45 that is my take on your signals now here are general specs
receive power -10db-+10db
D3 area recommended -5-+5db
receive SNR 33 and up no matter how high but not below 33
D3 area recommended SNR 35 and above
transmit 35-55 db or my take on them 40-50db
D3 area 35-52 recommended me 40-50 db
WoW, your recommendations are very similar to my "bad or misinformation"
"D3 area recommended -5-+5db" is awfully tight. Try telling your Cable Co they must meet that spec. They will tell you to pound sand.
He doesn't speak for his ISP Comcast.
We have a FAQ that more accurately outlines recommended specs.
In God we trust; all others bring data!
Unfortunately, various ISP's have their own standards when it comes to the acceptable signal levels on their network. This is why it is best to check in the forum related to the ISP or (if the ISP does not have a dedicated forum) call into tech-support and find out what is recommended.
