I was out in Marion the same time last night. All modem lights on and activity light with just a little blinking but no web access at all. All is ok this morning.

Just had a disconnect/reconnect. There's been a few others also. Don't ever remember seeing a "TLV-11" in a modem log. Log times are CST, and not CDT

It's still going on. Connection is dropped when there's one of those (TLV-11 - unrecognized OID), as I was at the computer when the Sun Aug 28 11:05:19 2011 event happened.

3 more disconnects in last 6 min. Every time there's a "TLV-11" there's a disconnect & reconnect.

For anyone following this, MediacomChad See Profile suggested that I replace the splitter, which has been done.

What are the recommended splitters? I may have an old one on my cables and I would like to get a new one.

I don't recall the brand that Mediacom uses, but you want to use a high-quality splitter that goes up to 1 GHz (1000 Mhz) in frequency.

I have a related signal question, there are TV cable runs going to two bedrooms in my house that are no longer being used. Are these using up some signal power? Should I disconnect them?

If you are not using them I would disconnect them and use a smaller splitter (ie.. 3 port v 4 port and so on). Every outlet you have hooked up has the ability of being a source for noise and also is "using up signal power". Every time you split the cable you are sending signal down that line even if nothing is being used on the other end.

Hope that helps!

Changing splitters didn't help. Connection has dropped off/reconnected 4 times in 68 min (at every "TLV-11) in the modem log. Replaced a "Extreme Broadband Engr" #BDS102H splitter to a SVI #SV-2G. What's interesting is when it "disconnects", it reconnects right away within 60 sec, just like you would disconnect/reconnect the power supply to your modem. Modem here is a Mediacom supplied RCA 425 that was brand new in the box probably less than 18 months ago.

Sounds very close to the problem I'm having with my Mediacom connection in Bettendorf. I don't have much confidence in the tech support after the last time I had a problem, so I want to be equipped with as much information as I can before I call them.

I've had some problems over the summer with the internet temporarily disconnecting, but it has gotten much worse in the last few days. Please let us know if you find anything. Here's my log:

Thanks, Chad. I figured out the problem was my computer.

I ran a coax cable from outside the house to the modem. Still had the problem. I disconnected the ethernet cable from my desktop and connected it to a laptop. No more dropping off every few minutes. I reinstalled "Connect" software on my computer and it seems to be working much better.

Some stats from my modem (for comparison if anyone else is having problems):
Before installing the bypass coax:
Signal to Noise Ratio 36.1 dB
Downstream Power Level 6.9 dBmV
Upstream Power Level 50.0 dBmV

After installing the bypass coax:
Signal to Noise Ratio 36.3 dB
Downstream Power Level 14.4 dBmV
Upstream Power Level 42.5 dBmV

Now (back to normal wiring):
Signal to Noise Ratio 36.4 dB
Downstream Power Level 7.8 dBmV
Upstream Power Level 45.0 dBmV

Those stats look good except for that first Upstream Power Level of 50.0 dBmV, but your current Downstream Power Level still looks high (7.8dBmv).

We have had intermittent disconnects the last week or so. The usual ritual of power cycling the modem doesn't help. It eventually seems to resolve itself. Mediacom wants to blame the modem but I am skeptical. What I noticed today is that our cable TV channels are breaking up and the TV is showing low signal levels. When our modem does get a signal it is showing a very high error rate, approaching 20%, which I have never seen. I think the problem is with the signal level from Mediacom.
We are west side of IC.

I had a similar problem a month ago in my neighborhood of Dubuque - poor signal levels that were clearly outside the house. The worst for me on the poor TV reception were all the upper channels, those with frequencies above the Family analog stuff, such as the locals on digital QAM 93, 97, 114, 115, etc. The problem seemed to get partly fixed when a noise problem seemed to be solved out on the line the day before my appointment, but the tech still wasn't seeing signals levels he liked so he replaced the drop to the house, which had gotten badly beaten up from squirrels and weather. Until the tech final came, I had to temporarily drop out my normal 4-way splitter, putting in a two-way only to the cable modem and the main HD TV, just to get enough signal for the TV to work. The modem worked okay the entire time for me.

I've had no disconnects in the past week, as they have all just disappeared. Had to be something on Mediacom's end.

I went through with the appointment with the Mediacom tech. Of course, everything was working fine while he was here and he was ready to leave when my wife insisted he replace the cable to the house. He did and the signal increased by about 7 dBmV and, so far, everything has been fine. No drops, no "TLV-11" errors, and one DHCP renewal. I hope it sticks.
