Gah, the copy paste isn't working well. Still can't see the clients either with everything disconnected, just indefinitely loads. Give a sec here to post the channels

Finally got the client list after a factory reset. Set it to N.
Only issue now, is the 5G isn't showing up at all since I did the factory reset. Not a big deal, but where did it go?
Oye, headaches with this thing.
I found with the clients list, when you go to that page.. you have to leave it... like for a good 5 mins.. not try to go to any other tab, etc... and they SHOULD show up.. and then you should be able to change tabs like instantly, etc.
Might have to re-enable the 5?
Havent played TOO much with the settings on it... as i use my own router for wireless.
Signals are not TOO bad.. they shouldnt be really effecting the speed.
(expected to see your upstream a little more out of wack)
The option to enable or disable the 5g is completely gone after the factory reset. It's been there every single time under the wireless/basic settings. 2.4g and 5g. Now the 5g is gone. The light on the modem isn't on at all either. Like I say, don't need the 5g, just odd that the option has completely vanished.
One thing works, another breaks hah
Thanks for the info so far though, set the few suggestions you guys gave. We'll see what that does.
kitty, the Basic tab takes time for the Connected Devices to load... on the Wireless tab under Status, there is a Wireless Clients button... this one shouldn't take too long to load
montsegur, that is strange with the factory reset... try rebooting the router again... also check your firmware, should be 22.214.171.124... unless 126.96.36.199 was pushed down... maybe another factory reset is needed... use the indented button on the backside of the router and hold it in for about 15 seconds ... your bandwidth is reading 20Mhz with a 65Mbps rate... you will probably get 40 to 50 only... bandwidth should be 40Mhz if you're within 30 feet or so... if you have an n300 card you should see 270Mbps rate with 40Mhz
news out about the 188.8.131.52 firmware, hot off the phone... will post on the firmware thread shortly
Can you list the wireless devices you are trying to connect, what the wireless adapter is (shown in Control Panel , Device Manger...Network Adapters) and what you have seen with it / them previously with any other router, in terms of data rates?
One other thing you can do is also include the connection rates which can be found by navigating to Control Panel....Network and Sharing Center and selecting the adapter that is shown on the center right hand side. That will bring up the Connection Status Panel which will show the Speed, which is the connection rate with the CGN3.
you might want to turn off the 5Ghz band... and if WPS is enabled, turn it off on both 2.4 and 5
no point in beating it to death... mine hangs only when something hasn't finished connecting, otherwise it pops up in seconds
sometimes closing the browser session and starting over clears hanging issues... repairing the connection or diagnosing the connection helps as well... the router pages are finicky sometimes... these soft resets seem to help
Trying to connect an Ipad 2 and an Asus Transformer (Broadcom 802.11abgn Wireless SDIO Adapter) and ps4. They all connect just fine. That screen just hangs no matter which I have on or off. Even sometimes when all of them are off. Not sure what I used to get cause it seemed fine. It all started to go down with this new modem/router.
as long as you have set the CGN3 to wireless N mode only and AES encryption, you should get the optimum speeds with a good channel selection
some channels don't work that well, especially with the 40Mhz bandwidth... don't use auto in the CGN3... channel 1 works best for me... for 40Mhz, its recommended to use channel 1, 6 or 11... depends on who's using what in the neighbourhood
