Currently experiencing low speeds in Area 20, there's nothing on the service status page (when I can get to it), the problem is intermittent. On the superhub2 the data light (two arrows) is constantly flashing, even when there are no cables connected to the back and nothing on the wifi, as if the hub is being flooded by traffic.
Speeds are so low that I cannot perform a speedtest by Ookla 99% of the time, and when it does work, it's below 0.5Mb/s, so I'm not impressed at paying £80 a month for this as you can imagine, since it's less than 1% of the advertised speed.
This is the down/upstream data:
Downstream Channels Lock Status Channel ID Frequency Modulation Rx Power RxMER Pre RS Errors Post RS Errors
To reset the Pre and Post RS error counts please use the Downstream screen under the router status screen available from the login page.
Upstream Channels Lock Status Channel ID Frequency Modulation Tx Power Mode Channel Bandwidth Symbol Rate
When I checked just now, before cycling the power for a few minutes, the third one down on the downstream listing was also saying NotLocked (the one presently listed on channel id 0).
This started at the weekend and has got progressively worse, is my superhub on it's way out or is there some undisclosed problem in this area?
To cut a long story short things seem to have rectified themselves speed-wise, although I don't know what quality is like, I'll reply back later if it's still poor.
The data traffic light (second one from bottom with two arrows on) is still flashing like mad, even when nothing is connected, this only started last week, is this now the normal operating of the modem or an indication of a problem with the hardware that may rear it's ugly head further down the road?
Good to hear that your connection has settled down since your initial post. The traffic light will flash when it's sending or receiving data, if you pop your Hub into Modem Mode with no devices connected, does the light still flicker?
speak with you again soon,
