[Internet] performance of 10/1 residential tier

Performance of my Lightning and my church's standard business cable modems seem good, but I question the performance of my mom's standard residential in SW Orlando.
SA DPC2100 Modem signal levels seem reasonable (S/N 33, 6dBmV Rx, 38.5dBmV Tx), but do the results below indicate some problem such as the node/provisioning or are these in the expected range for 10/1 tier? Results are from SamKnows router wired to modem (which tests every couple hours when PCs aren't using network).

I get every bit of the 10/1 service I pay for. The slow speeds are almost certainly a result of packet loss.

It's normal for the occasional packet to be lost, but it should not be at any measurable level. That you're seeing upward of 3-5%+ is problematic and I would recommend calling support to have the connection evaluated.

I'm on a 20/2 tier, and see around 16-17 down and 2/2.5 up. That's through my Linksys router to BHN's speedtest site.

I'd trade off 5 down if I could have the 5 up... LOL

Doug are you still having problems or is this a new one or did I miss something?

This is continuation of same problem posted to you in direct forum at end of October. If you fixed something like the node/provisioning or whatever based on that direct forum then perhaps this is new. However, I think a ball got dropped.

No ball dropped there was nothing found. I did post an followup to something I need you to check however.

For those interested: Tech worked several hours this afternoon. Although other stuff was done such as measuring levels at various points and replacing coax connectors, I believe the solution was exchanging DPC2100 modem and/or power supply (old power supply was a large one labeled Toshiba).

Although modem stat page says Receive Power Level increased to around 8.6dBmV, S/N improved to around 39, down is now good 11.2Mbps, up now good 1.1Mbps, with packet loss less than 0.2%

Actually there were multiple issues. I do not advise swapping modems as a solution for anything unless we determine that's what needs to be done.
