My home internet connection is provided via a DOCSIS 2.0 complaint RCA/Thomson DCM425 cable modem. As far as I can tell the DCM425 is an un-managed device, but it does provide a web interface for viewing diagnostic information.
This all means something to my ISP, but I don't know much about DOCSIS. Some of these I can figure out via context such as SNR for Signal to Noise ratio. However, I would really like to know more about what these diagnostics refer to.
Can anyone explain 1) what these various pieces of diagnostics information are or refer to and 2) what the normal range of values they should be at?
I realize this question covers a lot of ground, but I don' really need an in depth explanation (although I would certainly welcome it if someone wants to provide it). A simple high-level abstract overview of each item would be more than sufficient.
