Re: Eh?

Not even a clue what your point was

Now you are going to troll my thread? Wow...

Please accept my apology. I thought you were trolling; now I see that perhaps you really didn't know that a 0 dVmv DS power level is the optimum value instead of a problem. I hope that you now do understand that. OTOH, you really should have just asked that as a help question, and not try to be "cute" with a mystery "guess what my question is" post.

Maybe.. If it is rock stable. Who knows if it is even accurate...

Upstream is marginal and will cause problems if it goes up any.

For reference: For 2-channel bonding, the limit is 54dB. For 3-channel, it's 51dB.

Exactly where is this documented as a limit and not a preference?

those figures are from the docsis 3.0 specification. not sure if they are limits or minimum capabilities though.

Interesting, the document I downloaded from cablelabs some months ago has only two decelerations in it, single Chanel and multiple, there is no split multiple for 2 versus 3-4 channels [nor SCDMA/TDMA] the ways yours is. The date on yours indicates it is a few years old so its not a new edit either. Going to have navigate their document section again and see if they have conflicting documents or what.

Any advantages of the 6120 over the 6120?

Avoid gateway devices if you can (modem/router/wireless combos). Comcast has 100% control of the modem firmware, and in a gateway, that also means the router's firmware. You never know if they will take away a feature. I believe on one model, parental control options were removed recently.

That's a tough one, but I would say no advantages buying a "6120" over a "6120"

Well, there could be some slight variation in manufacturing. I couldn't imagine any difference between one 6120 to another. XD

The SBG6580 is also an N WiFi router but it's not nearly as reliable as a standalone router. As, andyross stated, you don't have full control. The advantage is 8 channel bonding over the 4 on 6120.

Look at the SB6141, as it's the latest model over 6120. This has 8 channel bonding.

The 6121 is basically the same guts as a 6120 but in different clothing. The 6121 does have a built in MoCA filter. I've never understood why Moto came out with these two different models. They share the same firmware as well.
