    New Modem Flashing DS light

    That is interesting information. I've started to see mention of this recently when researching what the heck I should do. I've ordered the Arris S33, and that should show up in a day or two. I think it's maybe a good thing--for me, anyway--that this particular Arris doesn't have a lot of...

    New Modem Flashing DS light

    Motorola advised me to return the modem! That said, they did state that the power level of the upstream bonded channel is out of range. I will be returning this modem for refund. If I buy another modem (non-Motorola), might I still have issues due to that out-of-range power level? Or might...

    New Modem Flashing DS light

    I think I'm probably driving myself crazy with this stuff. The DS light flashing just sent me off on a wild goose chase. As long as the light remains solid--and it's solid right now-- think I'll just let it be. As an aside, I did notice that after I finished playing an online VR game the DS...

    New Modem Flashing DS light

    I had called the ISP (Cox) and the tech said everything looked fine on their end. My speedtest score was good. It was then suggested to me about being sure to reboot the router as well as the modem, which I had neglected to do, and doing that seemed to correct the issue. But only for a few days...

    New Modem Flashing DS light

    FWIW, the DS light started flashing again yesterday, corrected/uncorrected numbers started showing again in the status columns, and my router (Amplifi Alien with LCD readout) showed network spikes. I honestly don't know if it's the modem (I rue not returning it when I could; I'm 3 days past my...

    New Modem Flashing DS light

    I am hopeful this is resolved...I had previously neglected to also reboot the router when I rebooted the modem. I just did so; and while, of course, the light no longer flashes, when I checked the status on the modem, all those "uncorrected errors" are now at zero. I hope I was the cause of my...

    New Modem Flashing DS light

    The manual says blinking blue downstream light means "negotiating bonded channel," with solid blue "bonded with 2 or more channels." It should be solid; I don't understand why it is indeed solid for a few days and then goes back to blinking, requiring a reboot to go solid again. I didn't know...

    New Modem Flashing DS light

    Activated a new Motorola MB8611 (docsis 3.1) about three weeks ago. Seems to work fine, although I noticed the blue downstream light will start blinking rather than remain solid every few days. It doesn't affect internet connectivity; I can still connect, still stream, still game. But it will...

    No longer able to transfer files from my pc to my amazon fire

    Might not be your issue, but whenever I want to put files on my husband's Fire, after connecting with USB I also--every time--have to go into USB settings on the Fire itself and tell it I want to use it as a media device. The default action when connecting with USB is to charge it. Once I...

    Good lord, prescription lens inserts are an incredible game changer!

    I had bought from Widmo for my Vive. I bought from VR Optician for my Index. Either option doesn't interfere at all with any and all third-party cushion upgrades. I'm also using the Studioform Index Enthusiast Kit (the straps and weight balancing), which is awesome. I gotta think either lens...

    Imminent power supply failure?

    I had run some stress testing initially with Prime 95 and FurMark running together, and everything ran fine (one of the reasons why I was so hesitant initially to jump on the PS failure bandwagon)...there were no restarts/reboots and temps were acceptable. So hopefully Seasonic will get this...

    Imminent power supply failure?

    Asus Sabertooth Z97 Mark 2. Gad, I hope it's not the motherboard! Had all my sights on the power supply. Since writing the above, after working fine for a few days, the desktop just shut itself off while I was doing something, so I initiated a warranty PS replacement with Seasonic. I sent...

    Imminent power supply failure?

    My desktop computer has a Seasonic X-850-KM3 that is 5 years old. Last week, the computer wouldn't boot; nothing happened when I pressed the on switch. Using the 30-second discharge tip, it came on and ran just fine. I ran a number of stress tests, and all ran perfectly, good temps, no...

    VR with prescription glasses

    I normally wear trifocals and have been using VR for years...since the original Vive. The trifocals were a little uncomfortable under the Vive--and later, the Index--headsets, but they worked just fine. I couldn't play for very long only because the tightness of the headset (combined with the...
