Re: [Connectivity] New SB6120/6121 Firmware Released
said by travelguy:Nope, firmware release SB_KOMODO-188.8.131.52-SCM00-NOSH has not been suspended. I activated a new SB6121 a couple of days after you made this post, and the first thing it did after connecting to the CMTS was to download that firmware release.
If you are currently on 1033, I wouldn't do anything to try to get 1066. For that matter, Comcast may have suspended deployment of 1066, but I still wouldn't force a reboot.
OTOH, I have not had any of the problems that others have reported with my SB6121 using the SB_KOMODO-184.108.40.206-SCM00-NOSH firmware (I have 4 channels downstream, 3 channels upstream, and I connect to an Arris/Cadant CMTS). That tells me that the problems being reported are not simply caused by the firmware per se, but may be a combination of the firmware and perhaps specific CMTS boxes/configuration and/or the hardware version of the modem itself (my hardware version is 5.0).
We can never have enough of nature.
We need to witness our own limits transgressed, and some life pasturing freely where we never wander.
I use an SB6121 hardware version 5.0 and connect on a Arris/Cadant CMTS with 4 channels downstream and 3 channels upstream and haven't had any problems. I do hope that the latest firmware will improve speeds because I'm just seeeing 52Mbps down max.
Same thing here (an SB6121, ver. 220.127.116.11 F/W, and connected to a Cadant/ARRIS CMTS with 4 channels downstream and 3 channels upstream) with no issues currently either.
My downstream carrier levels are usually around 0 dBmV (-3/+1) and my upstream levels are around +40 dBmV (-1/+2).
EDIT: My downstream SNRs are usually 36 or 37 dB (I've never called in to see what my upstream SNRs were).
My downstream carrier levels are usually around 4 dBmv and my upstream levels are around 49 dBmv
