Start by connecting an Ethernet cable from your computer to your modem. 2. Now, open your favourite web browser and type “192.168.0.1” into the address bar. 3. Login with the username “cusadmin” and the password “password”. 4. From there, select Wireless from the top menu. 5. Okay now, under Basic Settings check that Wireless Mode is set to 802.11 g/n mixed and the Wireless Channel is set to Auto. 6. On that same page under Multiple SSID Settings, change your Network Name also known as (SSID) to whatever you want your wireless network to be called, then click Save Changes. 7. Now you’ll want to repeat those same steps under the 5G tab. 8. Make sure to check under Basic Settings that Wireless Mode is set to 802.11 a/n mixed and the Wireless Channel is set to Auto. 9. Don’t forget, under Multiple SSID Settings, change your Network Name (SSID) to whatever you want your wireless network to be called, then click Save Changes. 10. Next, click the WPS & Security tab and under Security Settings check that Security Mode is set to WPA/WPA2 and that Encrypt Mode is set to AES. 11. Create your password using at least 8 characters, and click Save Changes when you’re done. Remember, if there are multiple SSIDs ..click the name of the network and check the settings. 12. Next, unplug the Ethernet cable and connect to your wireless network using the password you just created. 13. Once your device is connected to the wireless network, test a couple web pages to confirm the connection and you’re done

  PROBLEM:   I can’t connect to the internet from any of the computers on my network. How can I troubleshoot before calling in for help?   ANSWER:   The problem most likely lies with either your modem or the configuration of your router (if you have one). Follow the steps below, in the order they appear, to try to fix your problem.     STEP 1: RESTART YOUR COMPUTER Sounds basic, but this simple step often resolves minor issues relating to connectivity. You may also try shutting it down completely and then waiting a few minutes before restarting.   STEP 2: RESTART YOUR MODEM Unplug your modem’s power cord, and if you have a router, unplug that as well. Then wait one full minute before plugging your modem back in. Wait for the lights on your modem to turn solid green (not flickering). If you unplugged your router, plug it back in and wait for it to connect to your modem. Now, wait up to 10 minutes before your modem goes online.   STEP 3: CHECK YOUR CABLES Modem lights still not coming on solid? Ensure all power cables and wires are firmly attached to the correct ports.   STEP 4: SECURE YOUR CONNECTION Some modems have a “link” or “PC” light that indicates whether or not your computer is connected to the modem. If this light is off or flashing, then your connection isn’t secure. If the modem is connected to your computer through a network card or port, then ensure that the cable is securely connected to the computer and modem. Never connect your computer to a modem using a USB cable and a network adapter cable. There should only be one cable connecting them.       Diagnosing Slow Internet and other Signal Related Issues:     In order to examine the DOCSIS Wide Area Network (WAN) data, you will need to log into your modem in order to access the DOCISIS WAN page.  Instructions & Models are as follows:   Cisco DPC3825 Directly connect an Ethernet cable from the modem to the computer.

At this point, in single channel operation, you will typically see severe degradation in the cable data rates.    Signal level limits   Downsteam:  Signal power 0 dBmV (nominal) + / - 15 dBmV                          Signal to Noise Ratio range (typical) 36 to 40 dB.  Ideally, this should not drop below a  34/35 dB level, especially when combined with low signal levels which range below 0  dBmV.   Upstream:  Signal Power 36 to 40 dBmV (typical) with an upper limit at 51 dBmV for three channel  operation.  There should be a minimum of three upstream channels running.       Reach Out to us here on the Community Forums:   If you are experiencing poor performance on any modem and/or observe the following on your internet modem:   Missing one or more channels on the downstream side: Missing one or more channels on the upstream side, i.e., only running on one or two channels; Signal Levels which are down below -7/8 dBmV coupled with observed poor internet speeds or missing cable TV channels; Signal levels above 7/8 dBmV coupled with observed poor internet or missing cable TV channels   If you have any doubt concerning your internet performance please post a question in the Rogers Community Forums along with your downstream tables, upstream tables and the results from a Rogers Speedcheck with an ethernet connected PC or laptop.  Any problems with wireless devices should first be approached from the ethernet connected point of view to ensure that the modem is operating normally.  Please post in any additional information such as whether or not you have services which include Rogers Cable TV and/or Rogers Home Phone, and if you are observing any problems with those services as well.  As well, indicate whether your home is an apartment, single family house, or other, as this may change the approach required to solve an internet problem.     **************** Thank You @Datalink for putting together this extensive troubleshooting document.

  Here’s how to find out just how fast your current internet-connection speed is:   Open your preferred Web browser and go to   Rogers Speed Check. Click   Check Your Speed   and then   Begin Test   in the new window that will be opened. Watch while Rogers Speed Check measures your download and upload speeds.   Jargon Buster   Upload:   This is how fast your internet connection allows you send files to other computers or online resources. Measured in Kbps (or Mbps on faster connections), higher is better.   Download:   This is how fast your internet connection allows you to receive files. Measured in Mbps (or Kbps on slower connections), higher is better.   Mbps:   Stands for megabits per second. A megabit is a measure of data speed, not to be confused with a megabyte which is a measure of data storage. There are eight megabits in a megabyte. In other words, divide the speed in megabits per second (Mbps) by eight to get the megabytes per second (MB/s).   How fast is 250 Mbps?   Song download (5 MB) – Less than a second Movie trailer (60 MB) – Less than 2 seconds Full-length movie (700 MB) – Less than 23 seconds HD movie (4 GB) – 2 minutes, 11 seconds   How fast is 6 Mbps?   Song download (5 MB) – 7 seconds Movie trailer (60 MB) – 1 minute, 20 seconds Full-length movie (700 MB) – 16 minutes
