WB-1: 163 Riverside-Phoenix Network

It seems, for some time, upload on this Exede 5 beam has got an issue, and getting worse.




Within next month, I plan on getting a Republic wireless phone, which users are expected to use WiFi mostly. It takes about 80-kbps in both directions. 30 kbps upload won't cut the mustard on Republic wireless during primetime.

Hello....Mr. Engineer....can you get me up to 100 kbps before my Motorola DEFY XT arrives in next several weeks?

It's Sunday morning, around 8:10 AM CST

Notice upload speed of 49kbps, and download speed of 17.7mbps; my beam is not loaded....the Cisco Traffic Management Equipment has to be throttling upload speed.

Hello Engineering....I don't think this is a satellite issue, but a ground based configuration snafu.

Weather?

Take a look at your modem statistics. Although unlikely, the transmitter in your TRIA could be failing.

modem statistics

It suggests its "Good to Go," with its green checkmarks.

Rx SNR: 11.3 dB

Tx IF Power: -22.9dBm
Tx RF Power: 35.6dBm

But those TX values might suggest something is amiss...wide deviation between them when compared to users "smokybandit," "suceress," and "jpgr" values here in this thread: »I just got xede 12 installed how are my stats ?

I'm going to disconnect router next week and hook direct to SB-2 modem...and then see if same.

I hooked direct to desktop computer from SB2 Modem, and of course, your dynamic IP switches.

Based upon Testmy (via IP address), previous user of this dynamic IP had real slow upload speeds back in March/April; around 28-48 kbps upload, and from around 12-14 mbps download

What's interesting is first six numbers (xxx.xxx) of this dynamic IP remained the same, but last "six" numbers changed a total of 14099 units (when higher numbered IP one is subtracted from lower valued one via removing decimal point).

I ran two upload speedtests around 8 AM CST, first one, I just used a payload of 256 Kbytes, and second one, 3 Mbytes. Smaller payloads skew the results, for those who don't know.

Exede 5: WB-1; 163

Around 12:15 PM CST

Same dynamic IP (newer one issued), and still hooked direct to SB2 modem from desktop computer.

This upload result, 43 kbps, when compared to download result, 20.1 mbps, would strongly suggest Exede's Cisco-Equipment has choked this user's upload speed, for no good reason, other than SNAFU. Unless, SB2 modem has a programing glitch that retards uploading.

Some 15 minutes later, I tried to upload on Gmail a 1.3 Mbyte file. Typical upload speed via Networx was around 56 kbps, but after awhile, Gmail choked and stopped.

Gmail, on larger files will stop uploading with slower connections; it happened in Wildblue days.

Tx IF Power = 5.1 uW
Tx RF Power = 3.6 W
gain = 706,000

Your gain is in the normal range, but the gateway is telling your modem to ramp up the power to your transmitter more than normal. If the weather is not the cause, then maybe you need to repoint your dish.

Tonight around 7:15 PM CST, I ran two tests on desktop; then I shut it down, and hooked a notebook direct to SB2 with different ethernet cable, and ran one test.

These results suggest loudly, the issue is not on consumer side. Do note, normal web activities work just fine, but its good I'm not a heavy uploader.

repoint your dish.

I assume TX IF's value is generated via SB2 modem itself, but Tx RF power could represent actual value seen via "Earth Station" or a value generated via SB2.

I'm running a short cable run since WB legacy, less than 15' in ballpark.

Enclosed is a pic taken back in late March, when upload speeds were much/much faster; it shows a wide spread also

I may call my local Coop, and see if they can re-point. It's either an out of focus dish, or Exede's Cisco-Equipment is clamping down, due to programming.

I've hooked my router back up...had no issues with connecting/disconnecting computers or router.

In the photo you have:

Tx IF Power = -23.4 dBm = 4.57 uW
Tx RF Power = 34.4 dBm = 2.75 W

which is more normal. Is there high humidity, or rain clouds floating around your area to explain your current 3.6 W Tx RF power?

The biggest issue I have is right here.

It fluctuates from about 30 dBm and upwards, after watching it for awhile.

Somewhere around 34.7 dBm is 3 watts output, I think. I understand now that RF power shown is actual TRIA's output power.

I just have to wait and see what happens when I get that Republic wireless phone

I have a feeling it ain't going to work

Update: It appears WB-:163 uploads are climbing new heights now during primetime. Just a small payload test at primetime...246 kbps....Thx ViaSat!
