How to check Streamyx SNR Margin and Line Attenuation reading?

Laptop Problem

Firstly, what you need to know is the measurement and what is the meaning of each number you see. Refer below.

How to know which interval is good???
For SNR Margin:

If your SNR reading is equal or less than 6dB
- bad connection/frequent disconnections(Disconnected in 1-5 minutes) or can't connect at all

If your SNR reading is between 7dB - 10dB
-Consider average connection but still have disconnection issue

If your SNR reading is between 11dB - 20dB
-Good connection with no connectivity problem

If your SNR reading is between 21dB - 28dB
-Excellent line quality

If your SNR reading is greater or equal to 29dB
-Fantastic, never worry about anything!

For me, 11dB-13dB is good enough and you can already connect to the internet without disconnection issue/problem because my house distance is greater than 5KM from the nearest TM. *** For you to achieve SNR reading above 20dB, your house distance from the exchange point(Nearest TM) must be less than 5KM.*** 

There's one more thing about Streamyx Line, that is the Line Attenuation, below is the interval guide line (Basically, Line Attenuation is opposite to SNR margin value) :

For Line attenuation:
Greater than 60dB
-Bad Line Quality

Between 50dB - 60dB 

Between 40dB - 50dB

Between 30dB - 39dB

Between 20dB - 29dB

Less than 20db (your house must be very near with TM)

How to check this information ???
1) First, make sure you connected to your Riger Modem(wired/wireless). 

2) Open your browser and on the address bar, write "" without the quote and press enter.
*** Note that the192.168.1.1 is common ip address for Riger modem or any modem for streamyx ***

3) You should see the login page. Now fill the Username and Password Field. "Username : tmadmin ; Password : tmadmin"

4) Now, you should be seeing your modem information. Don't change anything, just browse through every tab. Because different Modem will store the Line Attenuation and SNR Margin in different tabs. 
*** Note : Please make sure that you are connected to the internet, if not, the SNR Margin and Line Attenuation field will be blank. ***

5) Compare your modem reading with the information I give earlier.
