IQoSWhat does the phrase "Ranged at inroute rate selected by IQoS" mean (found on the modem's advanced page"? During ranging the NOC determines the maximum transmit rate you can achieve, based on your service plan, the transponder's capabilities, and your transmit quality. IQoS: I = Inroute (inbound to the NOC from you) QoS = Quality of Service, or Quality of Signal or something along those lines. Going back to 2003 when rate codes were first introduced with the 4020 modem, and there were 2 available instead of every user having only one, the choices for those on a business 4020 plan were: "Ranged at inroute rate selected by IQoS" and you got the higher speed, or "Failed to range at inroute rate selected by IQoS" and you got the lower speed. Now on a 7000 modem it should always be the first one, because even the lowest rate involves a ranging test. Since this message never changes you have to look at the rate code itself to see what rate was selected, with most users expecting either 256K 2/3 or 256K 4/5, depending on transponder. 256K 1/2 would mean that you failed the higher ranging, and passed the lowest. The only way you could fail 256K 1/2 would be if you couldn't get on at all.
