    Hello, So I just purchased a Motorola MB8600 Docsis 3.1 modem and every speed test site seems to say different so Speedtest and Comcast say 500-600 down and 18-20 up but speedof.me isn't even giving me 100 down and best I got was like 333 after I cleared my browser cache etc. the other weird thing is I can't access my modems login page which is SO just trying to make sure it's actually working properly.


    Edit I was finally able to access my modem page, I had to change my Lan ip address in my router. So just want to make sure that everything looks good.

    Thanks again

    How are you connected to your router?

    Since you have a router, I would suggest running the speed test when you are direct to the modem, instead of the router. This will eliminate the possibility of your router being the problem. Also run speed tests from 2 other sites 3 times (not your ISPs) to get a base reading.

    Your modem channels seem to be fine, but the last channel does look weird but I am not sure what that functions. However as long as the uncorrectables are not high, then it should be ok.
