Docsis_3.1

I bought the Nighthawk X10 R9000 being told it supported Docsis 3.1.  Is this correct?  Download speeds are great but upload is similar to a Docsis 3.0.  Any thoughts??

   "told" by whom?

> Is this correct?

   I'd say no, because DOCSIS <anything> is a cable-TV modem standard,
which does not apply directly to a router.  Perhaps the idea was that an
R9000 could handle data at the speeds which a DOCSIS 3.1 modem could
deliver.  That might be true.

> Download speeds are great but upload is similar to a Docsis 3.0.

   Determined how, exactly?  Define "great" and "similar to a Docsis
3.0".  What speeds does your (unspecified) ISP claim that you should
see?

Docsis 3.1 is a standard for a cable Modem but to take full advantage of it the isp you use must support it, check with them they should have a approved list of modems that will work on their system.

Re: Docsis_3.1

What modem do you have?

 

That may be more important.

 

The router just talks to that.

Re: Docsis_3.1

Your router has nothing to do with modem standards such as DOCSIS 3.0/3.1.

 

Also just because you have DOCSIS 3.1 enabled and active with your ISP doesn't mean you will automatically get higher speeds. You get what speeds your ISP gives you regardless. For example I have a 55/5 Comcast plan that gives 70/6 regardless of DOCSIS 3.0/3.1, I am provisioned on 3.1 at the moment on a Arris SB8200.

True your base speed will be what you pay for. I pay for 100mb down/10 mb up I get 115 to 123 mb down and 11 to 14mb up with the spectrum's non router modem/telephone service modem.
