Just moved router, check downstream/upstream values
Currently on 50mb download speed package on a Superhub 2
I just moved my router within the same room but used a longer coax cable( used to be attached to Virgin TV) I checked downstream/upstream values before doing the move and wonder if someone can tell me if the new ones are acceptable, I'm no IT guy but changing a cable is not brain surgery :-)
Before the move Downstream Power Level (dBmV) ranged from -1.7 through to -1.94
Upstream was 54.75 on US-1 column and 55.00 on US-4 column, columns US-2 and 3 were N/A
AFTER the move Downstream (dBbMV) changed to varying from 0.71 to 1.09 to 0.68 in the DS-7 column.
Upstream level 51.25 on US-1 and 4 columns
I suspect there has been a slight improvement on the upstream but reason I ask about upload is I seen mentioned somewhere that upstream should be below 50.
Download speed seems ok using Speedtest.net bu Ookla online check
Re: Just moved router, check downstream/upstream values
Thanks for the post! I am sorry to heart about your high upstream power levels, I apologise for any inconvenience caused.
I have tested your connection from here however your Hub appeared to be offline. Is this due to it being switched off from your end? If so, please switch it on and reply to me here at a time when it will be on and available for testing.
If it is not offline due to being switched off from your end, then an engineer will need to attend and investigate this further, I will send you a PM (purple envelope at the top) detailing what's required in order to proceed with booking an engineer. Please respond t me there and I'll get this sorted for you.
