What is really ironic is that Rogers just published an article on their Redboard site (»redboard.rogers.com/2013/how-to-···p-speed/) on how to get your Internet running at top speed.
One of the things they mention is to "Make sure your wireless router isn’t slowing you down: If you’ve signed up for a fast internet plan, you need a fast wireless router to get all that speed." The irony of course is that Rogers is now providing only gateway modems with built-in routers that are absolute garbage! Perhaps they need to follow their own advice!!
In the same article they go on to tell you that the best connection is a wired connection. I am sure that many of us are aware of this. The problem is that many customers have multiple devices in their homes - more than one computer, smartphones, tablets, and game consoles to name a few - and it is just not practical or possible to have use a wired connection on every device. This is why we count on Rogers to provide us with proper equipment and in this regard, Rogers is letting us down!
Meowmix, I do not think there is a gateway out there that has a good, built-in router. Companies like Rogers seem to think that customers want a gateway - and we would if they worked as advertised. The problem is, they do not! That is why many of us would like to see a good, solid, stand alone D3 modem. It is actually much easier to install a 3rd party router on a stand alone modem than it is to install one on a gateway. The whole bridging thing would be eliminated with a stand alone. Customers always did this before they introduced the gateways!
