Re: WB-1: 163 Riverside-Phoenix Network

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.

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.

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.
