Re: Upgrade from dpc3000 to dpc3010 and slower upstream speeds
I did LOTS of testing over the weekend on the DPC3000. It does a rock solid 5.5 Mb/s up on all sorts of tests.. Over and over again. Never anything short of 5.5Mb/s
I just switched back to the orginal DPC3010 to revisit it and do some tests..
EVERY TIME I test I get 4.3-4.5. NEVER anything over 4.5. I tested using very large file transfers and speedtest.net and everything was in agreement. The DPC3000 was clearly faster upload.
Upload is very important. Its not so much overall speed but latency and jitter that count. However the speed difference is showing something is wrong.
Im running multiping using 10 pings a second to the cox gateway now. Its appearing that there might be a tiny decrease and maybe less jitter using the DPC3010. I will have to chart overnite and then compare with my charts for the DPC3000. I will post charts here in the next few days.
I get my new dpc3010 tomorrow. I wanted to get a good baseline set of measurements on this one first.
As far as firmware revisions.. I am also going to see if it updates firmware overnite.

Well I can tell you, you have a old firmware, and should update over night. As you see that firmware is a 2009 build, and I am pretty sure cox has a 2011/2012 firmware that should be pushed to your modem over night. I suggest doing more testing after the firmware is updated, and if it doesn't update overnight. I am sure you can PM CoxTech1 or odog with the modem's mac address, and they will get you on the latest firmware cox is using for that modem.

current firmware is may 16 2011. your firmware is old.
Despises any post with strings.
Yes, as is covered in the thread many posts ago my firmware was old. Important to read the whole thread before posting. In fact there is a *** UPDARE *** i put on the very first post that says that.
At first, I was like this guys a little crazy. But, then I realized he's just my kind of crazy. Awesome thread. Xymox1, if you ever get into router modding, would be an insanely interesting thread. Only thing I wish you would have done differently was figure out a more aesthetically pleasing design scheme for your frankenmodem fan mod.
Btw, xymox1, how often are you calling in to get your account's MAC switched?
