  1. If your performance sucks and you cannot get a good sync, type in 192.168.100.1 in the address bar. After doing so, you will be able to see the status in your cable modem. From here you may need to log into your modem. It will probly tell you what the default login is if you have an Ambit(grey flat box) modem. Click on the link to view the downstream information. Look at the Downstream SNR. What I usually have is about 36dB for mine, which according to Charter is excellant. Before adding a 3-way splitter to the line to get a better feed to the High-Definition box, I had a SNR of 42dB. We had a
  2. As far as I understand, you cannot update the firmware on these. You have to be one of those special people that get access to special areas on thier website. You can access the modem remotely though. There are two different default log-ins for these modems. They are listed as follows(the first one is the most common one, but it lists the default on the log-in page on the modems): User: user Pass: user User: root Pass: root
  3. You got the router. The datasheet for it is located here: http://ambitbroadband.com/60740eu.datasheet.pdf
  4. Around my area and probly others, you see commercials for Charter High Speed Internet and the people are using a flat, grey modem. These modems are made by Ambit. I have had both models that Charter has provided to thier customers. The first model that is now no longer made and sucked. I would test as getting the speeds I was suppose to, but it would not transmit between the PC and cable modem like it should. I told Charter about this problem and they said that it was nothing. I kept asking for a SurfBoard Modem but they no longer carried them in my area, but my cousin got one in his area(trus
  5. Charter is very picky on what modem you use. If you use a modem that is not what they provided even though you are legally using it, you are using an unautherised MAC address. This may piss Charter off. I returned my 2nd bad modem supplied by Charter but had went out and gotten the Linksys one and was told that the MAC was unautherized and that they will have to ban it because of it. I purchased the first modem from Charter and am stuck with thier POS. I feel sorry for the person that bought the Linksys I returned back to Wal-Mart. Charter
  6. So that explains it. Anyways, I have been downloading very fast lately. I had one of the downloaded files from Dell start out at 7MB/S using Mozilla so something is up with my connection to my brand new laptop.
  7. I get great speed because I live down the road from the Metro-East Server, but I am connecting to the STL servers now. I wish I was still connecting to the Belleville, Illinois server that AT&T set up. I started to connect to STL servers when I got the new modem Charter has(was one of the first to get it). Oh well, I get the speed I am supposed to get, sometimes better so who's to complain. ME!!!!!!!!!
  8. The Chicago, IL mirror testing server is the closest one and I am getting the great speed below from it. :::..

  9. Earlier today I went to download a file from a website and I noticed that the speed @ which the file was being recieved was going from 320KBps to 1.4MBps (yes it had the capital B meaning it was bytes). I tried to get a clear screen shot of this high speed downloading, but was having trouble. I started to download and canceled until I finally got the lucky screenshot below. What could have caused my cable internet to have such jump in speed I did a bw test here and it was normal. The pic and bw tests are included. :::..
