  1. :wink: A '10 card' also references a set of fingerprints...F.Y.I.

    I had to weigh in on something and no, I've not flown the coop entirely, just got some blazing good download speeds twice from:

    http://www.testmy.net/o-mirror-s1 (that mirror's server must be on my roof :2funny:)

    And so, 'whoopie' is called for here..just restarted my cox priority account. It's too fast, but I don't see how it can be *wrong*. It's certainly not in line with the average of other sites which are lower. That I do confess. :haha:

  2. All y'all going 30/5 and 50/5 as I gear up to gear down...honest. Dare I say I'm going to settle for the 'Lite' version of Cox HSI for awhile if they'll *allow* me to keep paying them money.. :knuppel2: I finally got a 'hot/cool' modem that ironed out the connection problems after 2 1/2 years of yuk. "They" musta had a guage on me showing I was getting service I was paying for and have initiated the *Disconnecterator*  :2funny: after 2 weeks of connected bliss...No worries mates. I know what I'm doing.  :idiot2:

    P.S. I'll soon be left in the dust for awhile...but here's the wee hours download of the 47Mb test:

    Not too shabby.. :smiley:

  4. Hey, I want one Tommie!  [nerd]

    Guess what? I finally, finally, finally..yes, finally have my Cox Cable Internet NOT disconnecting all the time. Reason? after SB5120's and SB5101's...good modems but didn't solve the connection problems...and then a Cox provided Webstar...only kind 'he' had on his truck a month ago...didn't solve the prob. either...I ordered, from the manufacturer a Dlink dcm202. It arrived in 2 days and have not had an unplanned disconnection since...quite unlike lately in this heat where 11 disconnects per 3 hours came to hair-pullingly 'normal'. It'll take awhile to heal from the pain of 2 1/2 years of:"Well it looks ok here" while on the phone or when the roll one to my place...ya will take awhile. I'm not selling Dlinks...but It sure solved MY long-standing problems!! Whew! :occasion14:

  5. This being an 'old' thread...my last comments were in May '07 but today I got a replacement for the not-so-hot Webstar that Cox sold me on their recent visit. Not a bad modem exactly but no help in the connectivity department. :smiley6600:

    So now? :cheesy:I'm over-joyed to say that for Cox (at least here in AZ), the Dlink dcm-202  :smitten: that arrived today is blowing the doors off all previous modems in terms of *connectivity*. I've had Cox service for about 3 years and after the first 6 months, nothing and no one could help me keep it connected for more than 30 hours at a stretch and usually 1 or 2 hours, maximum.

    It's very, very nice to be getting Premier service that actually stays connected. I'm a fan of Dlink fan. For each of us, it's a matter of what works, in the final analysis...not trying to sell modems. No increase in speeds but what relief from woe!!!! :haha:

  7. It is nice Tommie...and at least I don't have to hold the cable modem in hand as granpa has to with his satellite dish :wink: I should just be 'don't worry, be happy' with that but I do 'worry' because my frequent disconnection/reconnections occur way too often. Still...could be worse. At least I can get stuff done fast enough that the disconnects are the *only* inconvenience. :grin:

  8. Hey granpa! I thought I'd check in with you since I don't *know* very many in TMN...good to see you're still keeping up the good work and posting...hahahaha re "Hand held dish" :2funny:

    I'm blowing my own doors off here with Cox 12/1 and 'Boost' in Arizona...you don't even want to know. But I've missed coming in due to having a relative staying here since Feb. 7th..Odd how we know exactly when they arrived, eh? So, she's settled in her own place now...mostly and I can dink around on the computer more. Glad to be back  and nice to 'see' you too.  [nerd]

  9. I'm in Scottsdale, Arizona and I've been happy with the 12/1 Premier from Cox lately...*especially* with the 'Boost' but have had connectivity issues off/on for quite awhile. FINALLY decided to install a directional coupler instead of a splitter at the wall where cable comes into my place...NICE! Here's my test just now with 48,638kB download.

    My SB5120 signal log looks very good too, though it never was 'bad' I'm hoping I'll see many fewer (as in 'none') modem restarts now. My downstream power level was running -4 and -5 which should have been ok, but 0 is better, though some debate that :smiley6600:. SNR hasn't changed. Upstream has though, from regularly 40 to 49 now at 39 and steady. Maybe that'll help keep me connected. :grin:

    Downstream  Value

    Not too shabby for the big download. :wink:

    P.S. The directional coupler rather than a splitter has done squat for my Upload stats :cry:

    But I'm lovin' that download!!! :smitten:

    and...dare I include a good link to that item?


    P.P.S. For all y'all with and without 'Boost' our friends at SpeedGuide have cloned some info from here, there and everywhere for this help for all cable modem users:


  10. Keetan, I'm just happy to see your list of specs following your invitation to IM you...I'm going to assume you *have* the best modem already and it's showing :cool2: I needed to know myself, like right now because I took delivery on a new SB5120 today to replace my first SB5120 as it's been a good one...and I've had it awhile...no issues except off/on connectivity...which may just be hot weather here in the deser.

    But with the new modem, I don't know whether it was firmware obsolescence or what... my Cox 12/1 died down to 1/1 on most speed tests, including here at TMN. That'll never do! Some few were fine, which in a way is even more puzzling. Some of you may look at the firmware numbers and say 'aha!' but I won't bother you with that...it could take awhile before Cox pushes me a newer firmware that fixes the problem...and so, I just had the 1st modem reprovisioned and I'm back to square one...researching modems. As to 'perfect connectivity'. I don't know if it's possible but I'll thiMk hard about the DLink. (While I pack up the new dud and return it to NewEgg)

    Thanks [nerd]:smitten:

    P.S. All speed tests are back to normal...doubt just all the switching will fix the connectivity probs...but hope springs eternal, eh? :2funny:
