getting a steady 90 this morning on a 150 connection 2 floors, about 20 feet from the router
as soon as one of my laptops connects, bye bye 90, here comes 50... takes about 5 minutes before the router re-negotiates
thank you very much Rogers and Hitron !
if that were the case, then Rogers should stop advertising an advanced wi-fi modem and stop charging for one... i really don't know what page you're on, but how about looking at this page?
"Our Advanced Wi-Fi Modem delivers our fastest and farthest reaching Wi-Fi"
"Modem and Wi-Fi router in one"
"Increase range and speeds throughout your home with built-in high gain antennas." (that would be Wi-Fi)
I am paying for hi-speed Wi-Fi by way of the router supplied by Rogers... its part of the agreement... so what are you talking about? Roger's is indeed responsible! Rogers will not allow another router to connect to their network! I'm paying for their router !!! So is everyone else!
... and I'm not interested in hearing about bridging to another router... if that is indeed the solution which it seems to be for many, then Rogers should allow customer's to connect their own... why should I pay for yet another piece of equipment when I'm already paying for one that's supposed to handle it? Why should anyone? That's double the cost !
about the speed, what part of 90Mbps at 20 feet through 2 floors don't you get? that's great wireless speed, but the crazy router only allows it stand alone
try not to write so much, you might tire out your fingers and your brain...
Or in other words as I have pointed out in previous postings, you need to review every device that you connect, wired and wireless, determine their specs and what those specs mean in terms of maximum data rates. Once you have completed that, you might have your answer on hand. You should also review your power settings for the mobile devices to determine exactly what the device does to the wireless compenent, ie. is it shut down after a certain time, allowing the CGN3 to concentrate on a single device, does it stay powered up, what exactly are those settings and what part of this do those settings play.
thanks for the responses
i have no problem with the range nor with the speed when its functioning normally... however its not normal for any router to throttle back speeds so dramatically when sharing, regardless of the mix of hardware
i bridged an old DIR-655 that I had laying around just to see how another router behaved... it delivered 75Mpbs consistently to more than one device in close proximity yet the CGN3 wouldn't do the same at the same distance... in an isolated environment, no interference... hmmm...
unfortunately the DIR-655 hasn't the range to be of any use and i'm not about to buy another router, especially one that i can't get firmware for
