My Home Network Room



Devices in use are:

Cisco DPC 3825 (Bridged)
Ubiquiti EdgeRouter Lite (Firewall,NAT,QOS,DHCP/DNS,VPN)
RT-AC66U running Tomato Shibby 120 (AP+USB NAS)
Thermaltake BlacX eSATA/USB 2.0 Dock
WD Black 320GB 7200RPM 2.5''
APC Back UPS ES 550 (330watt)
P3 P440 Kill A Watt (power usage monitor)
TP-Link TL-MR3020 (Ripe Atlas Probe V3 Line Monitor)

Internet Connection is Shaw Broadband 100




Devices not in use have the big white dots on them and are

Alcatel-Lucent Cellpipe 7130
Actiontec V1000H

both are DSL modems. one day i plan on using the 7130 or another modem for a failover DSL line.

here is a snapshot inside my firmware, dont worry, i dont have that ip anymore







eth1 is my 2.4GHz eth2 is my 5GHz

thanks for looking

Is that a forward path attenuator on your modem?

yes it is i have no splits coming from the drop, just 1 8db forward path attenuator and 1 standard 3db attenuator. the 3db does what it should but the 8db FPA only takes off about 6db

my signal levels are right around

-0.5 --> +0.5 for downstream SNR is about 43

+43 --> + 44 for my upstream SNR is about 36

Unless you have access to the CMTS you can't know your US SNR

don't trust phone reps to tell you some have been found to make up numbers to get customers off their back.

Most modems now a days show both sides in their diagnostics. Many of which can be accessed by simply going to »192.168.100.1 in a web browser.

ya shaw has locked me out via that method but u are correct, believe me, ive tried my ass off to get in.....




but i also think darklogix is correct and that even if i could log in and get the power levels that way, there would not be upstream SNR. it can only be read on the cmts, and the modem does not know what the cmts see's

the levels are pulled through an exploit in shaw's system.
