Re: [Cable] Cable: Anyone still NOT have upstream channel bondin

Increased upload speeds won't happen until most of Rogers network is ready which starts with channel bonding. There are probably other criteria like backhauls from the head ends which will need upgrading too.

I'm skeptical of backhaul connections needing upgrades. Connections there are symmetrical which means tons of bandwidth on the upstream path not being utilized even with increased upstream speed rolled out.

They appear to be working on Bells Corners now. My neighbour's modem is showing 8/4 today, but he lost provisioning in the process -- just gets an internal Rogers IP address now.

I'm not touching our own modem (still showing 4/1).

As an update, mlord updated my firmware to 2.16 yesterday, and in the 30 hours or so since, not a single disconnect or error in the log. So if you're getting disconnects since getting your upstream bonded, this is your solution.

Our side of Bells Corners got upgraded last evening. Now at 8/4 bonding.
Anyone else? Who's still not got it yet?

I don't (in Longfields near Woodroffe and Queensbury). Rogers hasn't even removed p2p upstream throttling from this area yet.

Get a seedbox, dude! By far the cheapest way to (way more than) "double" your internet speeds.

Brantford just got 8/4 bonding the other day as well. Or at least my part of it, and I'm on the outskirts so I assume they would have started with the highly populated areas before me.

Not for me just down the road from you sbrook. Was almost a Whoops-dee-doodoo moment though, took 15 minutes for DCM475 to get back online! I was scared it would be fubared for a long time. You have to reboot modem for the change to be implemented and then observed at »192.168.100.1/Diagnostics.asp, right?

No, the modem gets told to reboot by the CMTS -- nice and automatic-like.

Woke up this morning (Carp, ON - Fallowfield POI) to no connectivity despite my DMC475 modem having a solid "Online" light. Hmmmm, I says.... reboot!

Got this a couple weeks ago.
Anyone know if it's possible how to tell if my node supports 8 channel down??, thinking of getting a DCM476 if it does. Down speed is getting slower during peak.

It will work with 8x4 if you have a modem that supports it.

I don't have a modem that supports 8x4, I'd like to know if my node supports 8x4 before I buy a new modem. But seeing that every time I reset and reboot my modem It's the same 4 channel frequencies, I don't think it does.

Argh! My area of Ottawa still hasn't been upgraded! We must be getting close to being the last.

Today I joined the 8/4 club. The price of membership was 'no internet for you' for about 12 hours.

I noticed it was down before I left for work at 7am. Returning home around 6pm and after supper it was still down. It took about half an hour of fiddling with modem & router resets and ipconfig /release & /renew to finally get internet back.

Just checked modem diagnostic page, and voila - it's 8 down, 4 up.

So should I notice any difference? A speedtest showed over 36 Mbps down on 28 Mbps service - but that might be due to the sudden absence of bit-torrent traffic on Teksavvy servers.

Your speeds will remain the same just split among the 8x4 channels. This will help in the event of node congestion at the very least. Until the last mile provider gives out higher QAM's and frequencies. (Or finally allows the speedmatching they're supposed to have [currently pending before the CRTC, more on this in other threads] and if so then we *might* expect a 35/3 bump up, possibly).
