New: Forum FAQ

I'd never really thought about it before - but a conversation with another mod brought out the fact that this forum doesn't have a FAQ area.

So, one has been created. It's naked and needs some clothes (and other content) - but it's there for anyone who wants to make a contribution. FAQs here are generally a community effort - so feel free to add content - which will go into a queue for editor approval. Not everything submitted will get approved - but by-and-large if it makes sense for a FAQ, it will be.

For ideas, you might want to take a look at the Road Runner FAQ - some of those items might be applicable - or need to be made BHN-centric.

I've started with couple of 'macro' areas - we'll fill in categories and sub-categories as need applies.

The content you submit may help many other BHN subscribers.

Thanks and happy writing.

After reading many posts about issues using the BH provided 2 in one cable modem/router I thought I would post this on the Forum FAQ section. If you are currently having issues with limited functionality port forwarding, DMZ , DynDNS config , DHCP Reservations. I highly suggest calling your local BH office (not the RR National Help Desk) And ask them to put your Cable Modem into "Bridge Mode" This will make the cable modem act more stable and disable the Router Part of the device. Then simply use your own router and configure it the way you want to compliment your home network needs.
If you Have any questions please go to the direct forums »Bright House Networks Direct this area is private just provide your Issue along with your IP address and MAC address located on your modem , then BHNtechXpert will assist you further.
I hope this post helps others , Thanks

P.S. If they put it in Bridge Mode , Please connect the Ethernet Cord from Either PC or Your own Router In To PORT #1 as only this port will work the other Output Ports will be disabled

So why a sticky to it, why not a link from the forum?
Or at least I've not noticed one yet.

How about definitions for the acronyms that I see all over the forum. Some of which I have no clue as to what they mean.
ex: CC TA MoCA , the list goes on....

Here is the answers to your questions,

CC = Cable Card
TA= Tuning Adapter
MoCA = Multimedia over Coax Alliance
GigE = Gigabit Ethernet
Cat 5e = Catagory 5 Ethernet rated for 1 Gbps
Cat 6 = Catagory 6 Ethernet rated for 10 Gbps
Gbps= Gigabits per second, does not equal GBps
GB/s or GBps = Gigabytes per second
Mbps = Megabits per second, internet speeds are measured in Mbps
MB/s or MBps = Megabytes per second, download speed is measured in MB/s

General rule there are 8 Bits for every Byte

I can continue but I even I don't know them all

Could add:

DVR = Digital Video Recorder
QAM = Quadrature amplitude modulation
