Looking for anyone who has had this issue before or who would know how to help before I call Rogers or Apple. Currently have an iPhone 5 running IOS 6.1.2 (jailbroken) and using the Rogers Hiltron cable modem set to bridge mode (disabled the Residential Gateway and UPNP but also tried it with it on as well) with a 3TB Time Capsule taking care of the DNS, DHCP, etc.... ONLY my iPhone 5 wifi is super SLOW (so bad I've got to turn it off when I get home and just rely on my LTE data connection) I have an iPad 2nd gen, 3rd gen, iPhone 4, 3Gs, MacBook Pro, iMac, and MacBook Air with NO problems connecting to and getting a strong wifi connection.
I tried the following with no LUCK:
1. Reset the entire phone to factory many times.
2. Reset the network on the phone
3. Setup the Hiltron Modem as my main modem/router/wireless.
4. Reset my Time Capsule to factory
5. Updated my Time Capsule firmware to latest
6. Used a D-Link and SMC routers in place of my Time Capsule
7. Manually added Google DNS settings to phone
The phone's wireless works perfectly at work! Of course it's a different provider but I've brought in my Time Capsule and it still works fine. So it's NOT the phone in my opinion. It must be the Hiltron modem for some reason! Has anyone had this issue or have any suggestions?
That does sound a little odd. Do you have an Ethernet cord that is long enough that you could try to disable the WiFi all together and test with just the Time Capsule? What kind of speeds do you get on the iPhone5? Have you tried to restore it and test to make sure that the jailbreak is not also playing a factor?
Have any other community members experienced any issues like this and would like to share their input with Kevin?
That does sound a little odd.
Yes....does seem so.....
Do you have an Ethernet cord that is long enough that you could try to disable the WiFi all together and test with just the Time Capsule?
Yes...I do have multiple computers wired to the Time Capsule and they have tested to be good connections...am getting between 5 -35 mb/s at speedtest.net
What kind of speeds do you get on the iPhone5?
At home, most of the time using speedtest.net app, I'm geting about .5 mb/s which is a little less than my upload speed. Every now and then, if I turn off wireless and back on again I will get 5 or 10 mb/s. At work, I get a consistant 35-65 mb/s upload and the same for download. So it can't be the phone if I consistenly get good speeds at work.
Have you tried to restore it and test to make sure that the jailbreak is not also playing a factor?
Have not since the iphone 5 in question gets consistent fast speeds at work. Am stumped.....
If you have techsavvy for internet.. and the speeds are fine otherwise.. it has nothing to do with rogers internet/service for that part of it.
As for your phone... my iphone 5 seems to run fine on wireless (through rogers), never as fast as say my laptop, but still very decent.
Have you done all the updates on the phone? Have you tried a factory reset on the phone yet?
Compared to ALL the other phones pretty much, the iphones are the ONLY ones that rogers has no control over the software.. they dont add any of their bloatware, etc.. it is ALL controlled by apple.
So if there is a software issue where it is not staying on wifi, etc.. this is an APPLE issue, and best brought up with apple.
