Fort Worth Charter

Kind People,

Look Im trying to love you but having a hard time. All week there has been connectivity issues with Charter I'm in Fort Worth 76179. Down between midnight and 9 AM. Modem shows all week even after restart DS light yellow.

Here's my speed test.

This is the top product Internet only service 100 bucks a month. Having a real hard time with this price against sketchy performance.

Here's a trace minutes ago no connectivity what so ever. Now working

The Strangest Thing after I posted on here (top post) 10 minutes later - aftr 5 days of the intermitent up and down with continual yellow DS lite I witnessed an automatic reboot of my modem and for first time in 5 days the yellow DS lite went out. I assumed my post prompted a senior admin from Charter to fix, maybe not. So it's all pretty good now . I did a speed test last night speedtest.charter during prime traffic and received 18 mbps down and 4 up at this morning I'm flying

This connetion advertised speed is 100/5 I checked my plan. Don't think I've ever received half of that so not sure if there is a config problem there.

thanks for the help

I'm in Fort Worth in the Meadowbrook area and I too have the 100/5 from Charter. I've had it for more than a year now and very seldom have had any problems. The last speed issue I had with them, they sent a tech out and he replaced the splitter and that fixed my speed problem. I have only internet service from them.
Here's a normal speed test result:
