Re: SB6120 Firmware Updated (7/19/12)

Since the firmware update, I noticed that DHCP RENEW warning occurs exactly every 84 hours (3.5 days.).

I don't get the DHCP warning on mine. Only seem to be getting TLV-11, MIMO Event MIMO, and some T3's.

FWIW, that sounds correct for the typical IP lease length of seven days which renews at *half life*. Bear in mind that this "DHCP" message is for the DOCSIS / WAN / management IP address for the modem and has nothing to do with anything connected to the LAN.

I have been getting the DHCP warnings for a week or so on my SB 6141 modem.

I've been getting DHCP errors in my log since the FW update on by SB6120 as well.

IMO, this version of the firmware shows those DHCP "warnings," but they are not an issue.

I suspect they were there with the older firmware or, at least, the same normal things were happening. We just didn't see them. They show up now at the intervals set by the DHCP server, but nothing bad is happening. It's just business as usual between you and that server.

If they set the intervals at six days, you would see the message every six days, but they would be just as unimportant to your connection as they are now.

If there was a problem with renewing your IP, you would lose connection. You would know there was a problem without even looking at those logs.

FWIW, typical IP lease lengths renew at their *half life*, so that may be three days.

True, I just can't tell from the messages if that is the half-life check or not. The point, of course, is that those messages are not a problem. Just messages which can be ignored if one does not lose connection.

I agree, here's my log and the DHCP warnings occur once a week at the same time (+10 seconds). The new firmware was downloaded on July 24th.

I think OldschoolDSL was just pointing out that he saw a new Firmware version on his SB6120 ("Firmware Name: SB_KOMODO-1.0.6.6-SCM00-NOSH") and a new Software download ("SW Download INIT - Via Config file d11_m_sb6120_economyplus_c01.cm").

Is the modem firmware version contained in that speed tier .cm "Config" file, or is it downloaded separately to the modem?

I know you get new Config files when changing speed tiers without changing the modem's firmware version.

The firmware is loaded via TFTP via the config file. That's typically the primary method. There are others if it fails for some reason.

Updated in Miami, Florida. Recent, but not sure of exact date. Now have 2 bonded channels upstream. No change in 4 bonded channels downstream before and after update.

The firmware had nothing to do with channel bonding.

If you look on the config page, you'll see a "favorite frequency" which designates what your first channels will (try to) be, no matter what other channels are assigned, out of order allows for diversity, your neighbors may have 62,64,63,61 or even through a few others into the mix.

I got mine automatically yesterday. Internet dropped off line and when it came back I had the new firmware. No problems as of yet.

So why isn't Comcast utilizing and bringing support to Motorola's SNMP QoS components and services?
