I have in place a new Arris SB6183 router. My downstream channels (16) and upstream (4) are indicating power usage that is out of spec. I have only Ultimate Internet as a user. No cable,phone, .etc
My connection is coming straight from the box at the street and through my wall.
I am including a screenshot of my modem status.

From what I've been reading that my upstrem channel power should be +/- 3 db.
What has led me to the forums is that my internet download speed can be anywhere for 70 to 170 mb.
As an aside, my modem time is off early by an hour. This model has no user config at all.
Any help or guidance will be appreciated.
6183's don't work IPv6 on TWC since January and the supposed firmware upgrade was never implemented. However they will do up to 300/20 speeds with no problems.
Actually it's still on the list of "approved" modems for max (300/20) speeds. It just doesn't have working IPv6 at this time. So, technically, it's "supported", but the support just sucks.
If you don't care about IPv6 at this point, it still works great. But if you absolutely must have IPv6, then look elsewhere unless you have the patience of Job and can wait forever for TWC to fix IPv6.
