Re: [AZ] Speed Increase 01/31/13

 
 
 
 
Well I bought an SB6141 and I had Cox provision it this morning. Only took a 9 minute phone call. The tech was very helpful and the process couldn't be any easier.

The lower speedtests are using my SB6120.

HMMM, Where's the BEEF?



I'm afraid to call Cox and bug them. I see the second channel in the bonding has high correctables/uncorrectables.

I'm seeing about 1MB/s higher in Ahwatukee with essential. It used to peak about 2.1MB/s. I'm seeing a steam download peak at 3.2MB/s and mostly it is around 3.0. I have a SB6120.

Here are the new speeds from the Cox Phoenix web page. Interesting they only quote Powerboost speeds!

I had the faster speeds earlier today but tonight it's back down to where it was yesterday. Sounds like it's a known issue. Not shocked that there are a few bumps in the road on the first day. It happens.

Well its possible a routing issue between me and that server. I just know I can download at around 13MB's, and I couldn't even download at 1MB's on that file.

Thanks, that server sits on the Cox network in LA, CA, I used it to determine sustained download speeds in the past.

Any recommendations to test large file downloads?

My speeds went up, but I no longer getting my 3 IP address's. SB6120 and I am seeing dnlds speeds of 40 - 50 MGb and uploads at 11-20 Mgb.

Called Cox and they are telling me that they have a DNS issue, but what does that have to do with DHCP Ip adddress's

I am the one who posted the scottsdale --> LA speed. I had a 6120, and I went and bought the Cisco 3010 from the cox store this morning. It doesn't have a built in N router which suits me fine as I have the buffalo AC router/bridge combo in my home anyway. In short, yes you have to get a newer D3 modem that is capable of 8x4 bonding. Just for a real world throughput demonstration, I downloaded wow this morning in about 10 minutes.

You have to call them and provide the modem's MAC for provisioning. I'll set it up in the next couple days and post an update..

If you still prefer to have separate router/modem the SB6141 is also an option for Motorola.

Nick, can you post your speedtest with the 6580? I have a 6120 and the max I get off Cox's test is 137 mbps.

Should I look at spending $120 to get the 6580? (Just because I want the most I can get )

If I buy the 6580, does it require anything on Cox's side to get it working? Or do I just replace the 6120 with it and it works?
