Why do I have so many T3 timeouts?

Hi

I'm checking my Superhub 2ac network log and I have a lot of T3 timeouts as shown below. Frequently, my Superhub seems to be restarting by itself and has been dropping connections too. Any reasons as to why this may be happening?

Re: Why do I have so many T3 timeouts?

Because your upstream power levels are too high and one of your upstream channels is out of spec (32 qam, when it should be 64 qam).

Re: Why do I have so many T3 timeouts?

I called up Virgin today and they ran some 'tests' and said my hub is working properly. I was forwarded to another person who then sent out a new hub for me. Will this resolve the issues?

I doubt a replacement Hub will fix your problem.

It is a cheap way of solving your problem for a few days.

Re: Why do I have so many T3 timeouts?

I, too, doubt it will fix my connection problems. I game quite a lot and I've heard the Puma 7 chipset flaw with the hub 3. I hope I wont get heavily impacted by the high latency, or that virgin has fixed the issue.

If the issue resolves after a few months of my hub being fitted in, I'll definitely be sure to call them back again and persuade them to send out an engineer.

Hi meeeeehmet, thanks for contacting us, can you confirm if the hub has now arrived and if there is any change with the connection? ^Chris

Re: Why do I have so many T3 timeouts?

Hi Chris,

I have been using the hub for more than a week now and I still have no change with the connection. If anything, the connection has gotten much worse.

The old superhub had a stable network connection all the way upstairs to my living room but now on the new hub the connection disconnects as soon as I go up the stairs.

On top of that, I've been getting more T3 and T4 time-outs. Take a look for yourself:
