I have a 1Gbps NIC so that may be why I get the speeds I have been seeing

That is now unfair, they are only giving it to you.

I've checked at various times even at 3AM and still consistently 50-52 down. One time, I saw the meter go to 65ish but it quickly reverted to 51 and the test results reflected 51.

Maybe a new config file to select customers for 100/5?

Dont understand how some people who are on 50/5 in nyc get like 75 or 100 down, guess it meant they were never capped properly.... I would like to know this because getting 100 while paying for 50 sounds like a great deal.

Seems the DC test site is the one with the 70+, I just tried and still 50-52 at best. However a good sign that we could get 75 or even 100 in NYC.

In Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
I now have 8 down and 4 up, however, my 30/5 is now 15/5(SB6141 modem).
Will try again tomorrow.

Still no native IPV6.

how do you guys check this i have smcd3gn

On most modems, go to »192.168.100.1

You might have to ask Google for the default password if it requires one to access the signal stats.

In some markets, TWC disables the web interface on some modems. If that is the case, there will be no way for you to get this information on your modem.

Went up from 4 to 6 in my area. Channel ID's 5 & 6 are not lit yet.

are you sure your not having a signal issue on 333MHz and 339MHz?

motorola870 See Profile do you think I have signal issues with those frequencies? Can you detect from the stats I posted?

Compare mine to Pizz, each channel ID corresponds to a frequency. They are not exchangeable, in my case the frequencies that are assigned in channels 5 & 6 are not bonding with my modem. Hence, I wonder if it's a problem or TWC in my area has not turn it on yet.

Correct but 73-76 are consecutive numbers. 1-4 then 7-8 is not.

Do they need to be for any technical / equipment reasons?

You got me thinking now, why would the modem skip channels 5 & 6?

Out of curiosity, arent the channel numbers simply a label? Who says they need to be in order? Mine shows channels 73-76...I could ask what happened to 1-72.

Correct but 73-76 are consecutive numbers,1-4 then 7-8 is not. If you look at the pic, the first items from 1-6 is what you call the label then the next column describes channel ID.

You got me thinking now, why would the modem skip channels 5 & 6? As far as usability my service is solid, I really didn't need the extra channels as I'm in Turbo but just for curiosity's sake. If it was really a problem the upstream signal's power @52dBmV might be contributing to it, but like what I said, my service is solid.

As I said maybe that modem has some bug with displaying them properly even though it maybe locked on all of them.

The modem is an Arris TG852, it's an 8X4 modem, you can see channels 7 & 8 are there but not 5 & 6.
