Hey Blunted2, you actually can't just change any of those levels.

It is all relative to your signal level, the condition of the cable plant, and your home cable condition.

Your levels look good, they appear to be from a Motorola modem, and I am going to take a guess at the model: An SB3100 since the RX level is reading zero.

That is unlees your input happens to be zero dBmV at the moment.

Nope, everything looks good- was I right on the modem model number? If not, what model Motorola is it?

Good, then your receive level of 0 dB is perfect, and you couldn't ask for a better downsteam SNR (38 dBmV).

That is the difference between the signal level and the noise level, the larger the ratio (in dB), the better.

Simply, the closer your signal level is to your noise level, the better chance you have of experiencing interference from that noise.

They look good.

It looks like you have a little more attenuation in line, maybe you run through more than one splitter before the cable hits the modem, but I would not worry.

Those numbers are well within the comfort range.

Both your guys levels are better than mine, and I have have no problems.

I have an extra 3 way splitter in my comp room, because I am always messing around with the setup.

I have just been having a lot of trouble with my power levels coming into my modem and actually called Optimum.  They did not know too much about these numbers other than just the acceptable range and could not help me anymore than that.  My downstream power was at 9dbmV and my download was down to 5 mbps from when it was originally above 9mbps.  I started messing around with an amplifier along with splitters (attenuators) and I got  my downstream power down to 1dbmV and my upstream power to 49 dbmV and my download jumped up over 9Mbps and my upload up to around 1mbps.  The power level for the downstream should be as close to 0dbmV as you can get it.  For me, the best download speeds came when I had between 1 and 3 dbmV.

I have the Motorolla SBV5120 modem.
