Quote from: gundi;58383Why does TW ask if your computer is within 6 feet of a cable outlet? Can't you just have a modem, say in the basement, where the coax cable comes into a house?

Quote from: ArgMeMatey;58401That's what I got this morning. Scientific Atlanta "WebSTAR" on front panel. Hardware Version 2.1Software Version dpc2100rx-v202r1256-110513Uas-TWCAdmin interface is at 192.168.100.1, although only the "System" tab is accessible showing dbmv levels. The old SurfBoard showed me the RF channels used and I don't remember what else. So I am still wondering if I supplied my own modem if they would lock me out of parts of it. Would they use SNMP to do this? Or, because the 2100 has a software version ending in "TWC", is it safe to assume they have just built their own somewhat more bullet-resistant software?
Quote from: brewtownska;58403Isn't the software (I always referred to it as firmware) what TWC uses to cap your speeds?
Quote from: ArgMeMatey;58404Based on what I have read elsewhere they would download a config file to the modem that tells it how fast it can go. So no, it's not dependent on software or firmware per se. I'd be interested to know if the frequencies on the Signal menu (posted below) vary or if they are consistent, at least in this market. I used an html file to view the signal, status, and log menus: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r26466092-Downstream StatusLockedChannel ID37Downstream Frequency693000000 HzModulationQAM256Bit Rate5360537Power Level0.6 dBmVSignal to Noise Ratio39.9 dBmVUpstream StatusLockedChannel ID4Upstream Frequency21000000 HzModulation64QAMSymbol Rate2560 Ksym/secPower Level41.2 dBmV
