Modem Signal Levels:
If the above steps have not resolved the connection issue, try viewing your
modems status page and compare the signal levels to the following:
Downstream Power Level: -15dBmV to +15dBmV is the extreme limits that
your modem should be able to operate within but ideally this should fall between
-10dBmV and +10dBmV
Downstream Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR): This number is best over 35dB,
but you may not have any problems with down to 33dB. Anything less and you will
probably have slow transfers, dropped connections, etc.
Upstream Power Level: Ideally this should be within the 30dBmV to
50dBmV range. If it is between 50-55dBmV, you are approaching the upper-limits
but should still be able to operate. If this is above 55dBmV or below 30dBmV,
you will likely start to see frequent disconnects or modem reboots.
Upstream Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR): Anything above 29 is considered
good. The higher this number is, the better. If this number is below 25 and 29,
you have a minute amount of noise leaking in somewhere. If it's anything less
than 25, you want to get it fixed as you may have a lot of packet loss or slow
transfer rates. note: you will need to contact customer support to find out
the value of this signal level as it is not available via the cable modem status
Upstream Receive Power: Ideally this number should fall within the
-10dBmV and +10dBmV range. note: you will need to contact customer support to
find out the value of this signal level as it is not available via the cable
modem status page

unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally
lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.

In this Country nothing trumps freedom of speech. Not fear, not political correctness.
The answer to any perception of "hate" speech is not less speech, but more speech.
