Re: How do my signals look?
Some very minor errors on the downstream, 0.00017% uncorr, nothing I would even bother with.
Everything else looks good.
Main reason I ask is that I've seen .8% packet loss and it jumps sometimes enough to knock me off google chat. Previously my provider replaced the cable modem and it improved a little bit. The packet loss(from observing MTR traces both to and from my IP) shows the loss being between the cable modem and the next IP hop.
Funny thing I noticed which is counter to what I've been taught, is that i have packet loss at low usage/idle but when I loaded down the connection the packet loss lessened... I know odd, but anyone know why?
I too have some slight problems but with my SNR though. Was at 40 and above and now it is at 36! why? I'm thinking upgrades or a node split is the possible cause or otherwise CMTS re-configure.
