Re: [Signals] Balancing my own signal
said by beachintech:Yeah, I'm aware now (thanks to you from another thread) of the possibility the modem is misreporting it. I'm planning to call to get the CMTS numbers to see if they jive. Or are the CMTS numbers also suspect?
Yes, about 4 DB, assuming your modem is reporting proper signal levels.
I did have an attenuator from my FiOS install (signal was too hot for the S3 Tivo), I may have to use that as I don't think I have any terminators.
I would skip the splitter. It will not hurt anything either way. Make sure you properly terminate the unused ports. Wouldn't want to hurt the SNR further.
I'm not disputing that it could be unrelated, but the packet loss didn't start occurring until recently when the SNR has fluctuated and dropped into the 33's (and occasionally down into the high 32's). Cause. Effect.
I think your opinion of my comment is off from the intention. Your packet loss may not be related to marginal signal. Until you follow through involving a tech with a real meter, there is no way to say otherwise.
