Intermittent Disconnects: 3801HGV - Part II (Moving)
Part I is fully described here.
After tech visit (10/3)
Started seeing signal loss (10/10)
Last night (00:56)
Last night (00:58)
Part I Summary: So, for the past year or so at my current place, I had been having some disconnect issues. Forosnai, ILpt4U, and mmay149q (thanks, folks!) helped me close in on the culprit. I got a couple of techs out to the house, and the second one essentially found an in-house bridgetap, which he corrected. For the first week following the fix, my connection was rock-solid.
Part II: Over the last week, I've been seeing some weird variation in the bitloading graphs, and some disconnects to accompany. However, I am moving next week and taking my service along with me.
The question: Is in-house wiring the likely culprit here, or could the RG be to blame?
I'd like to use my current (owned) RG at the new place and save myself the cost of renting or purchasing a new one.
Thanks in advance,
With that kind of variance, I would bet on outside cable trouble -- either a loose bond/ground, a partial short, water in the cable, etc
When it is changing like that and intermittent, something is varying. bonding/grounding issues will effect with present interference at any given time, a partial short will be ok sometime, and bad others, and water in the cable -- well when its wet, its bad, but when it dries, its good...
