I've been trying to get remote management working on my Synology NAS drive afer installing a SMCD3GN. I had a older modem with a Lynksys router and it worked perfectly. I use dyndns and that worked like a charmp for over a year. It doesn't matter what I try with this extgremely feature limited modem, it doesn't work. $230 down the drain IMO unless Rogers has more advanced firmware to use. The modem forwards its own address before anyother so a remote connection will always give you the modems signin page.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Or do I have to drop this **bleep** modem back to the Rogers store?
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
Is someone from Rogers going to reply to this thread?
I what to know when it will be resolved.
I was told by tech support to buy a wifi router and configure the Rogers modem as a modem only. Can you believe that? Then why did Rogers sell me a modem with routing features that don't work. I think Rogers owes me a solution tht I paid for in my expensive modem.
I don't want to lose my Gige ports or the N wifi that the modem provides. That's why I purchased this modem. The once still falls on Rogers to deliver a product that works as advertized.
I'm having a similar issue; trying to forward ssh connection without adding an unnecessary hop to the network; I keep getting a "conflicts with management ports!" error...why even put it in the port forwarding list if you won't allow us to forward it? And I can't even ssh into the router myself which leads me to beleive that it may only be possible by Rogers themselves...Rogers why do you feel it is necessary for us to pay $7/month for a "high speed wireless router and modem" that won't even allow us to do what it claims to do?
This one of the many reasons I can't stand this company...is it too much to ask to provide a service that doesn't nickle and dime you at every turn? Too much to ask to let us use our own equipment to manage our own network?
We pay you for access to your network...not to control ours.
3 Months and still waiting for an acceptable response from Rogers. Will someone from Rogers address this issue or not? Jsut tell us whether Rogers plans to correct this condition or not. If not, then why not?
I'm still really pissed at this situation and lack of response from Rogers. Totally unacceptable to me. I had to purchase an external router and place the modem into bridge mode. I was not happy to do this but I had to because the wifi started to mess up on this router/modem. What a piece of crap device that I paid a large premium for directly from Rogers. I think Rogers should do something for us SMCD3GN users.
