Also, in manual it says, if port is gbit, it should be solid blue?
For some reason, mine is solid green, and its connected to R7000 (Bridge Mode) with CAT6 network cable.
I tried few other cables, CAT5e, etc, still the same color like in the image.
From them modem:
HW Version 1A SW Version
I am currently having an issue where I would loose connection for a moment after a certain period of time. This is only a problem for me when I am playing online games since I would be disconnected to the server. Sometimes this issue could acqure every hour or less.
I switch to this modem 3 months ago and the problem has began since. A technician has come and check that there are no problems with the hardwire. The only thing he has said was that the new modem accepts many differenct signals which may cause a minor interference. I am not completely sure what this means however.
Is anyone else having this problem?
If anyone knows of a solution I would appreciate any help you can give.
Damir, you are correct, "in manual it says, if port is gbit, it should be solid blue". That is the front LED that we are discussing here which has a firmware bug, in terms of the displayed colour. For a gigabit connection the front LED should be blue, but it shows green instead. So, hopefully, until the next firmware release, ignore the front connection LED colour. Look at the back of the CGN3 and confirm that for the port in question, you have a yellow / orange LED indicating a gigabit connection, or, a green LED indicating a 10/100 Mb/s connection. If the LED is green, you will see throttled down data rates due to another firmware bug, that is, any connection with a 10/100 Mb/s device, which is directly connected to the CGN3 will see throttled down data rates. To use any 10/100 Mb/s devices and see the max data rate for either the CGN3 or the device, you need to install a gigabit port equipped firewall, switch or router, (dependant on Gateway or Bridge mode) between the CGN3 and the device.
Thank you ! Its yellow\orange flashing, and green is off, only yellow\orange light is flashing on activity (green is always off).
Melloncalle, are you playing via wired or wireless connection? The other thing that comes to mind is the DHCP lease time. Log into the modem and navigate to the Basic tab...LAN Setup (left hand sub-tab) and check that the DHCP lease time isn't set to 1 hour. If so, extend it to something like 1 week.
