I just changed from a hybrid fibre 30 (with CGN2 modem) to the Rogers Ignite 60 (with the CGN3ACSMR modem). I'm not sure why, but I now get firewall errors when I try to load up the game. The internet works fine, other than the specific case in the game. Does anyone know what is happening, or how to fix it? I have tried port forwarding, turning the modem into bridge mode, even disabling the router's firewall. None of these options have fixed the problem.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
It seems that it is unanimous. The firmware update fixes League of Legends and Hearthstone latency issues that caused the games to drop its connection. Hopefully next time the firmware will be tested with these games before it is rolled out to all the Rogers customers.
I’ve worked in Computer Validation for over 20 years, so I know a heck of a lot about software testing. Other than browsers and email, your testers need to itemize what their Rogers customers use the most and test the software. Games are infamous for straying from software standards, so I would suggest that your software testers build testing scripts to evaluate the more popular games like League of Legends. In the long run it will save your support people and customers a lot of headaches. I think that Rogers is a great company and I get tired of people putting it down because of a lack of due diligence and poor testing. Releasing a firmware update to a select group of people (like this unplanned controlled update) should be standard. A pilot rollout for firmware updates should be standard practice at Rogers. This way your test group can catch the bugs before it goes out to all the customers. I could give you more advice, but then I would have to charge you 🙂
Just an FYI..
RE's do NOT work for rogers at all.. so its not OUR people, etc 🙂
I do agree, that much more testing needs to be done..
I would assume that they can tell say what the top 1000 connections type/points are, at at least make sure it works with them.
Only other DOWNSIDE is that rogers doesnt have 100% control anyways 😞 As its not directly ROGERS hardware.
The software/firmware fixes have to be done in conjuction with Hitron in this case.
This may be something which would effect ANY carrier which used hitron hardware.
Much of this testing, should be being done at the MANUFACTURER level even first.
One thing that the RE's here have been pushing for, is for at least US (and any other users here who wish it) to be beta testers... even for new hardware. Oh new modem going to be released? Let a smaller amount of us test it first, see if we can break it or not 🙂
Finally solved the problem.
Get your old router back. For real. The CGN3ACSMR is literally NOT compatible with League of Legends. Not sure the exact reason (I'm sure if you read all 35 pages of this discussion, it's in there), but as soon as I switched back, it all worked just fine.
It seems that they didn't do enough testing with this router before giving it the green light for production and distribution.
I went through all the normal troubleshooting and called Rogers and had their "experts" help me out, just to tell me that I should hire someone and pay a couple hundred bucks to get them to try to fix it. But truly, I doubt they'd even be able to, considering this is a problem with the modem itself. Each and every CGN3ACSMR is having the same problem. Maybe if enough people return it, Rogers will catch on.
Switch back to your old router, or ask Rogers for a different model of router all together. Otherwise, there's no solution to it out there. You won't be able to play League of Legends until then.
Hope it helps!
@orangebaby0406 I'm not sure if you are indicating that you have sent the necessary details to CommunityHelps, or that you still need to do that in order to have the update firmware pushed to your modem. If that is the case, please read the first post of the following thread:
@CompanionCube, RogersAsif is correct in indicating that a good number of CGN3ACSMR users are using this modem for League of Legends, Destiny, and others without any problem after the modem has received the updated firmware. It is unfortunate that Tech Support appears to have been left out of the loop on this and as a result, don't necessarily know that there is a firmware download available to solve the issue. Here is the thread that outlines how to go about requesting the download;
While the CGN3 does work, the drawback to that modem lies in how it handles devices on the 2.4 Ghz network. It will lock down to the data rate of the slowest device on the 2.4 Ghz network. The CGN3ACR and CGN3ACSMR have been programmed with and / or built with co-existence mechanisms for use on 2.4 Ghz networks. The end translation of this is that those modems should run each device on the 2.4 Ghz network to the maximum attainable data rate for each device, depending of course on the range to the modem and the signal to noise ratios at each end.
I just notice this post and I am happy. Because I was trying to play the game also and I could not. I just got connected today.
Would be possible to get 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199? right now it is the 188.8.131.52 firmware i have.
What is to do to get it updated to the latest firmware please?
All that is required is to send the modem MAC address and Cable Account Reference number to CommunityHelps in a private message. Please read the first post of the following thread:
After that, follow this link @CommunityHelps to get to the CommunityHelps page, and on the right hand side of the page is a link titled "Send this user a private message". Use that link to get to the next message composition page, fill in the title and your information and hit send. If the staff are not too busy, you might see the firmware pushed out either late this evening or overnight during the scheduled maintenance periods. If not, it should be pushed out no later than tomorrow night.
