Should I be concerned of my downstream going to -8 dBmV? - Time Warner Internet

#1
This question is about "Should I be concerned of my downstream going to -8 dBmV?", with Time Warner Cable internet and apps. Hello.



From FYI: basics of signal power level - Welcome to the Community Forums guide, -8 is borderline. I know temperatures can also affect this since it is hot with the summer. It was mid 90F degrees outside and almost 90F degrees in my room where the hot cable modem is. Attic and walls would be much hotter where the coax cable lines are hidden.

There was one recent short outage on Sunday when the cable Internet connection went down, and the cable modem decided to autoreboot by itself. DVR's cable digital TV was still working though when I checked during this outage. Logs of that short outage.



Cable modem's logs and statistics can be found in Paste2.org - Viewing Paste h0mzPa39 (couldn't copy and paste into here due to the forum's 20K characters limit -- boo!).

Should I be concerned of my downstream going to -8 dBmV??
