I cannot establish a connection. What does it mean when the Rx LED is blinking?
It means that the modems is RF synced, however there is no data on the channel.
In the Monitor screen, why is the channel status “Unlocked” and no data is being transmitted?
No data/traffic on the channel. Once data starts transmitting, the channel will change to “Lock” status and data will be transmitted. If the RF channel is locked, but there is no data transmitted over the satellite link, the remote receiver monitor will show that the carrier is locked but the channel status is “Unlocked” (ver 4.0 and below) or “No data” (ver 4.5 and up). On the front panel, the Rx LED will blink. The moment data starts transmitting (above 150kbps) the channel status will change to “Locked” and the front panel Rx LED will be steady green.
What information I can deduce from FER (Frame Error Rate)?
FER (Frame Error Rate) indicates that there are errors on the RF link. The amount of accepted FER is related to the tolerance for error of the application (Web browsing, video, E3, etc.). Normally, FER should be kept as low as possible. An increase in FER means that corrective measures should be applied on the link (change power/MODCOD/FEC, check for external RF interference, etc.).
What can cause “FER”?
Attenuation in the satellite link caused by conditions such as weather.
