Rogers New Advanced Wifi Modem (New Hitron) Is AMAZING!!!!!!

I used to have a Cisco DPC 3825 and the wifi on it was garbage. In my room I would get around 1 signal bar.

 

I have the express package but in my room with 1 bar on wifi I would get 10Mbit download and 2Mbit upload.

 

Today I went and exchanged it for the new advanced wifi modem http://www.rogers.com/web/link/modems

 

It is amazing.

 

I am getting 4/5 bars and 31Mbit download and 2Mbit upload in my room. http://i.imgur.com/HSL0J6H.jpg

 

I would recomemnd everyone to get it.

 

I have free modem rental on my contract so it is FREE for me. ^.^

We will have to give it some time, to make sure it stays good.

But it is nice to see them releasing hardware that actually DOES what it says it should, rather than the failures of the last few things.

I know that I am very interested to see reviews on this modem. I saw one comment on Facebook. It was not so positive! "It sucks, wireless throughput is weak." I am really hoping that Rogers might have got it right this time, but I am not holding my breath! Would love to see more comments!

It does not seem that USB ports work... I tried to connect my printer to it yesterday - I was not able to access it. I am trying to connect my external hard drive to it, still cannot access it.

 

And there is no manual for this gateway. I called rogers, spoke to the manager who confirmed that they don't have a manual for this gateway. Suggested I call Hitron directly. I sent Hitron an e-mail asking for the manual. If they won't respond I'll give them a call.

These types of gateways are designed for MSOs (Internet providers) and generally not released direct to the general public

The login we have to them, is a restricted one, the provider has a super login. It's likely disabled in there. 😞

I don't know about the USB ports as I have no reason to use them. My Printer is wireless, my PS3 uses ethernet, my other desktop uses Ethernet. & My laptop and main desktop and phones use wireless.

Many people like to have a hard drive attached, to act like a NAS (network attached storage), to stream stuff to media player devices or just as a network store.
This eliminates the need for a pc to be on all the time to do the same thing.

The ability to share a printer over the network is also useful. I used to have my printer connected to Netgear R6300 router, but now, after upgrading to Hitron CGN3 and leaving it in gateway mode with its USB ports disabled I have to connect my printer to Windows Home Server, so it can act as a print server for my home network.

 

Just don't see a valid reason for Rogers to disable USB ports on its gateways.
