Re: Buy a new non-rogers cable modem

When I was echanging CGN3 for DPC3825 recently I was told that both DPC3825 and SMCD3GN are still currently supported and could be ordered to any Rogers store.

 

P.S. However SMCD3GN does not give you access to the most up-to-date plans. I was told SMCD3GN could only be paired with older plans.

Re: Buy a new non-rogers cable modem

I am on a CURRENT plan, with the SMCD3GN. (current express @25/2.. and am able to get that regularily)

of all the devices.. it has the lowest downstream/upstream channels though.

its only 4/4,
Vs the cisco and the old hitron are 8/4, and the new hitron is 16/?.

 

It may limit the PLANS in the long run allowed to be connected.  The Ultimate internet, cant be applied to the SMC i beleive, things like that.

 

So depends on what package you were on/wanted.

Re: Buy a new non-rogers cable modem

And to bring the conversation back to the topic I recently noticed that TekSavvy updated their list os approved modems, which now include both Motorola 6141 and 6580. I have a temptation to try to activate one of those. The only catch is to try to find a modem manufactured for the canadian market. In this case it is theoretically possible to activate it as I was told before.

Re: Buy a new non-rogers cable modem

This forum is correct - the wireless function on the Rogers cable modem/router is a piece of junk.  Why won't Rogers give their customers a badly needed option of a modem only?  When are they going to realise their modem/router is inadequate for some network systems?  Worse how can they offer these high speeds when their modem/router cannot support networks????

Rogers does not allow non-sanctioned modems on their network. (Think Hitron series - with another vendor device coming up in the future) Also it is only DOCSIS 3.0. Rogers is migrating to DOCSIS 3.1.

Don't waste your money.  Rogers will not let you use your own modem with their internet plans.

Re: Buy a new non-rogers cable modem

I think Rogers is saying now that you can't use your own modem. Is this true?
It may be a good idea to try Bell if this is the case.

Bell won't let you use your own modem either.
