    • Among the information, current operational mode, current port downstream and upstream rate, total number of downstream and upstream cells, total number of downstream and upstream packets, total number of downstream and upstream discarded packets due to congestion and related information on PVC are only effective when the port is activated and the line is in work.

    Question 1
    What is the difference in retaining due to?
    And, what is the difference by replacing with ‘because of’?

    "Due to" means "because of". This may have been changed because of historical objects to using "due to" as a preposition. These objections have mostly dissipated over time and harfly anyone objects to this use anymore.

    Quoth the AHD:

    due to
    prep.
    Because of.
    USAGE NOTE Due to has been widely used for many years as a compound preposition like owing to, but some critics have insisted that due should be used only as an adjective. According to this view, it is incorrect to say The concert was canceled due to the rain, but acceptable to say The cancellation of the concert was due to the rain, where due continues to function as an adjective modifying cancellation. This seems a fine point, however, and since due to is widely used and understood, there seems little reason to avoid using it as a preposition.
