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

said by DreaMagine:

Im on Kitchener POI and I get 4x2
Just did a modem reboot a few mins ago but did not get 8x2 bonding. I take it that the POI does not give 8x2 for every person connected to it? How does it determine the number of bonded channels to give out to each peer?

There's two issues here:

1) Which modem do you have? The Motorolas only support 4 downstream channels.

2) It's based on node not POI. There's several hundred nodes on the Kitchener POI. Some are 8x2, some like mine are 4x1, some are 4x2. Until Rogers offers higher speeds the 8 downstream channels aren't really required anyways, you shouldn't be experiencing slowdowns with 4.

I had it at 4x2 here in Kanata for a while, but it switched back to 4x1 some time ago.

I've got the SB6120. I did not realize before that it only supports 4 bonded channels up and down. That would explain it.

MMmm... Just noticed that our DCM475 here was operating with only 1 downstream and 1 upstream today. Power-cycled it and it's back to the normal 4 down / 1 up again.

Weird.

I check last night and mine was bonding at 1 up and 1 down. I have a SB6121. I did a re-boot and it connected at 4 and 2. But this morning it was back to 1 and 1.

Do you think I should call about this?
I'm in Kanata

Unless you are having major issues, don't worry to much about it. You should check to see if your DHCP lease is 1 hour or 7 days. If it's an hour, there are probably upgrades going on in your area.

DHCP lease 7 Days. No digging or Rogers vans in the area. The local node is 5 houses up the street from here, and the fibre runs more or less directly from there to the Fallowfield POI, about 2KM away.

4x2 on motorola at 400/401 Toronto.

It did not make a significant difference at all. Maybe there is more speed consistency during peak, but it was never that bad to begin with.

If your connection is fast and consistent with 4x1, you are likely not going to notice any change..

The bottom line is this:

DOCSIS 2.0 -> 3.0
Quite a significant difference during peak hours or congestion

DOCSIS 3.0 4 channel -> 8 channel
More consistent service, you may be eligible for faster speeds when they become available

Similarly to upstream bonding.
1->2 quite a difference but afterwards, probably not much.

It seems my DHCP release is evey 24h. My modem this morning is still at 1 and 1. I did notice 6 messages on the log page that said "re-boot due to partial service. DOCSIS 2.0". So maybe there is work going on in my area (Kanata).

Is it just me or the Markham POI (Anderson) hasn't been upgraded to support upstream channel bonding? I have been waiting for it. I am using SB6121 Modem and I hope it's not because of it. Thanks.

It's node-based not POI-based. There's many thousands of nodes in Rogers' network, it'll take time before they upgrade every one. No one gets faster speeds till the tariffs are updated, so for now it makes almost no difference.

I'm at Dundas & Sherbourne on the Bloor POI, still 4x1. Anyone living in the same area with more bonded upstream channels?

Yep, in some areas they're starting to roll out. just hold tight as they slowly bring it up through the network. Honestly it doesn't make that much of a difference especially now that the POI congestion is getting eased out.

I got upstream bonding on my 6121 with 1.0.5.1 firmware sometime in the last 3 weeks. Bloor(2) POI.Seems pretty stable with 17 days uptime currently. Can't wait for upstream upgrades!

Unless you're experiencing congestion it makes no difference at all....bonding doesn't have anything to do with faster speed...the .cm file that's sent to your modem has to do with how much actual speed you get...and that's the truth so I"m not sure why everyone keeps looking at whether or not they're bonding...anywho...

I was mainly waiting to see if my modem would support it on their network for when they eventually enable higher speeds.

I was just down for about 15-20 mins but I'm back up and I now see 4 upstream channels instead of 2. My modem can only do 4x4 but most likely this area is now offering 8x4. Horner/Browns Line area of southern Etobicoke. My IP address also changed from 108.162.130.x to 24.52.228.x.
