How to you block websites on CGN3ROG

Hi, I've been looking thru the hitron control panel and I havent been able to find how to block websites?

I have a couple of sites that I would like blocked from any internet access. Normally I have no problem with finding this, but I can't find it at all on this modem?

 

I am also having drop out issues and am not very impressed as I am paying a rental fee for this modem.....

 

Thanks

Re: How to you block websites on CGN3ROG

Just had a quick look to be sure, but, it looks like you are correct.  IP address or website blocking is not in this version.  Note that a new firmware version is expected by the end of the year, so, you never know, it might be included in the update.  Do you happen to have your own router by chance that you could connect between the CGN3 and the computers that you want to block?  That might be a work around for now.

 

Are the dropouts on wired, or wireless connections or both?  Do you use both 2.4 and 5Ghz networks?

 

Can you navigate to STATUS......DOCSIS WAN, copy and paste the Downstream and Upstream tables into this thread.  Don't copy the data that sits above the downstream table.  That data is the cable signal levels which will indicate if there is any problem with the cable feed to the modem.

Rent or buy.. you will have to pay a $$ for a modem part, no matter what to get service.

 

While this is suposed to be designed as an ALL IN ONE sort of solution.. and it is... its a very BASIC one at that.
The routing functions are fairly basic on it beyond normal stuff.. Its wireless rang can be questionable.

You CAN turn the unit into bridge mode, effectively turning it into a MODEM only.. and then if you were using a 3rd party router which had these features, use it to restrict things.

Ya, I have a cisco router as well.. Didnt want to put it together as its boxed away but if thats the only way..

Both, but I just turned off 5GHz networks when I went in an hour ago. I'm not playting a game but what I'm working on just stops so I'm going to have to assue its still happening.

 

 I tried to copy and paste that info, but it says my post has to be changed because of invalid HTML, and reformated it to just text so quite confusing.

I understand this, but its pretty ridiclous they can get away with charging 12 dollars a month for a product that BARELY works.

And its pretty funny because the dude tried to sell me Rogers Techspert for 15 dollars so that he could tell me how to do this, yet it doesnt exist...........................

Cable levels are good. Can you load inSSIDer on a laptop and bring up the network display.  That is a wifi monitoring application.  Run both networks, 2.4 and 5 Ghz.  Take a screen capture and post it as well so that I can have a look at it.  That will tell you how busy your neighborhoor is when it comes to wifi routers running nearby.

None of the combo modem / routers have a steller reputation when it comes to wifi, so if you are having problems with the 2.4 Ghz network I'm not surprised.  I use the 5 Ghz, don't game on it, but for the use that it gets, it runs without problems.  What devices are you connecting via wifi?

I enabled 5g again.

 

If running at the same time, maybe a laptop, netflix on a smart tv, ps4 all at the same time.

But everything there is about 3 laptops, 2 smart tvs, a ps4 ps3 and xbox 360.

Not normally running simotaniously tho.

Also during that time, I actually had to unplug the modem because it just stopped working for 5 minutes

Re: How to you block websites on CGN3ROG

Ok, at just a glance, your modem which I believe is Rogers 0425 is transmitting two networks on channel 10. If you look at the top two MAC addresses, they are the same. Unless you are running a guest network, that second network without an SSID should not be there. Based on that alone, I would trade the modem in. Did you use the USB setup key that came with the modem by any chance? I would rename the network (SSID) to something that is random, and doesn’t reflect on your name, address, or modem type and cannot be found in a dictionary. An amount of random characters in the name makes network hacking more difficult, or maybe I should say, takes away the advantage of the easier methods that are available. The max length of the name is 32 characters. The encryption key (passphrase )may be from 8 to 63 printable ASCII characters or 64 hexadecimal digits.

 

https://www.grc.com/passwords.htm can be used to generate random passphrases and also used for random SSID by using only 32 characters of the password.

 

From the 5 Ghz side of the display, the 5 Ghz network is not running at all. Can you try another screen capture with the 5 Ghz up and running?

 

When the modem freezes, does it do that for both wired and wireless or just one?
