Re: New SB6121 - Now connection isnt as reliable

I used an SB6121 for about a month after my trusty D2 modem of 6 years bit the dust. I quickly learned why many people say the 6121 is so sensitive to signal fluctuations and line noise. The modem signal levels were on the lower ends of the acceptable windows. After about 2 weeks, the thing began having T3/T4 timeouts and frequent restarts. I jumped ship and bought a Zoom 5341J. This modem has been working flawlessly ever since. The signal levels have all increased with this modem and are solidly in the acceptable windows. The 8 downstream channels vs the 4 in the 6121 are also a definite plus.
