Re: Arris SB6183 modem

yeah looks like they didn't provision it with the right config file.

 

to be honest, it should still work fine, but you can try messaging one of the mods on this forum & they will get it the right file.

Hello vcrfixer,

 

Your bootfile should be correct now.

Re: Arris SB6183 modem

I am having a number of issues with my brand new SB6141 modem since having my Business Service installed, including the error mentioned above along with MIMO errors and resets. The logs cycle over and over again with the following:

I am experiencing very, very slow download speeds at all times of day (around 4-6Mbps) when I am supposed to be getting shared 25/10 speeds. My upload speeds are good and go between 6-9Mbps. Here's my downstream signal details in case this might also be the issue:

Any assistance would be very appreciated. The phone techs seem totally confused by my questions.
