Re: Virgin Media to Double Broadband Speed

I upgraded from 30mb to 60mb, didn't get a new contract.

My brother upgraded from 20mb to 60mb, he has a new contract. (He already had a superhub)

Go figure.

Re: Virgin Media to Double Broadband Speed

Cambridge CB24 has had another downstream channel added this morning making it 5 but still only 1 upstream, i was hoping for 8 channels due to high congestion at peak times.

I did have to reboot the shub though as the 5th channel was showing a power level of 47 dBmV before it displayed the normal value.

Re: Virgin Media to Double Broadband Speed

I got all excited this morning after seeing a 10 minute drop-out on the TBB monitor just before 8am.. Thought it might be the upgrade..but alas it wasn't

Is that not right then SnoopZ?
:edit: should have said always at 45ish until I reboot.

Optimal levels for downstream power are around -3 to +7 i believe, so your 45 is way out of spec.

The 45 will be the SNR, not power levels.

My 47 was my power level on the 5th downstream channel until a reboot.

Re: Virgin Media to Double Broadband Speed

If you see my post 1505 you can see my power levels are back to normal now.

This 47 i am talking about was literally right after the 5th channel was added, and a reboot cured it, the internet worked normally though when it was 47.

Re: Virgin Media to Double Broadband Speed

Prior to yesterday I had 4 DS channels. Now I have 4, 6 or 7 after reboot, upload speed has dropped to 3Mb from 10 and the data transfer LED is flashing all the time even when no data is flowing.
100Mb Engineer booked for tomorrow.

Can you only check if additional channels have been added if you have a Hub?

Sorry for the noob question.

Only the superhub can use 8 downstream channels. The other modems are 4 channels only so you can't tell.
