How NetCon is calculated for AES radios (PART 2)

How can there be several IDs at the top preference locations in a Routing Table, which have a Good Signal Quality (SQ) and yet have a NetCon of 7?
If NetCon is 7 and there are what appears to be Good SQ IDs at the top of the list, then there is something else that is preventing the Subscriber from considering the ID as Good.It may be that the NetCon of the #1 listed ID has itself got a NetCon of 7. A Subscriber can’t be better than the best (#1) ID listed in its routing table.
It may be that there are some faults being reported by the ID, which are not displayed in the information presented to you.Signal Quality is only one factor in determining if a listed ID is “good” to decrement NetCon.

The list of what is considered good:

Signal above a threshold. (SQ=Good)
No Faults reported. (i.e. low battery, AC fail)
Link Layer better than current LL of this Subscriber.
NetCon is less than 7
