Sounds like your new CGN3 had not been properly activated or added to your account. Call Rogers to double check. If the CGN3 had been properly activated you would not have had a chance to use your old modem.

I would agree.. doesnt seem like its properly activated/provisioned on the account correctly.

And, ANY tech visit, should NOT cost anything, as long as its not user indused.  If its a modem/setup issue like it is there where wont connect at all? its a rogers issue... no charge.
If that is up and running, and you just cant get one device to connect.. that could be device related, and therefore outside of their coverage, and chargable.

We just picked up the new one on Friday Jan 2nd and ever since we switched we keep loosing our internet connection as well.

No reason, it just seems to intermittently loose it's connection.  Our old one worked fine, it was just slower and we needed more speed.

Also some of our divices are not connecting to it even when it is working.  No idea whats happening.

Already called Rogers once and they just reset it at their end and changed our network name,  didn't help.

Re: Advanced Wi-Fi Modem not connecting to internet

The dropouts.. if HOURLY, may be a back end issue.. which seems to be going in waves at they are upgrading something.

As for the not connecting part.. how are these devices connecting to it?

wireless... after multiply attempts we got our PS3 connected, but our Boxee will not connect.

Re: Advanced Wi-Fi Modem not connecting to internet

What type of security is it set up on?

 

That one is dual band (5.8 and 2.4 range). 
The network names, normally can be set up differently (different names, if you want).
Do you know which one you are connecting to?
I have a dual band 3rd party router.. and some devices have an issue with the 5.8, even though they support it.
If i connect to the 2.4, they are fine.

I would be interested in hearing what Rogers syas or does about this, as I suspect it the DNS proxy gateway connecting to the Rogers DNS gateway that is causing a delay making the Boxee connect process time out.

 

If it suddenly starts to work or starts to work after trying to reconnect (turn off and on quickly without other devices interferring wiht ht ehand out of LAN IP addresses) it will confirm these network problems are Rogers DNS setup.

Further question is if the PS3 is reset do you lose the connection?

The Poster would need to define 'connecting'

If they are not able to connect to the device at ALL.

Or if, after connected.. if they are just not able to get out.

While it COULD be a DNS issue, if they cant get connected at all, DNS would have no impact on it.
(you can connect to a wired/wireless router, be served an IP address, and ANY DNS server and still 'connect' to it.. you just wont be able to do anything internet related majorily)

DNS issues tend to be from a weak signal to your modem, as a splitter or a db reducer on the cable wire in your home could potentially be leaching the signal away..
although sometimes a reducer is needed because to much signal can be a bad thing as well.

had a tech come to my place and had to change out an old splitter that was taking the signal strength away which was causing the modem to crash and give dns issues

Mine was the same I waited 2 hours and it connected. Local tech said you may have to wait upto 4hours for it to connect!
