Re: FEEDBACK - Rogers Rocket Wi-Fi Modem Firmware Trial

Pings are still crumby, if the modem is under load over 10mbps I'll see upto 100MS for some pings

 

Also some issues in the gui: 

 

WAN IP Address none, none

WAN Up Time 000 days 00h:00m:00s

 

*modem is bridged*

 

On the bright side, I can almost always open the gui unlike before where it would randomly not work/time out

That's normal in bridged mode, your router/pc is getting the DCHP lease and not the modem Smiley Happy

Re: FEEDBACK - Rogers Rocket Wi-Fi Modem Firmware Trial

A couple of things I noticed since my firmware upgrade on the weekend, mostly to do with wireless:

 

1.  INTEL_CE_LINUX beacon seen mirroring 2.4Ghz network SSID (may want to turn off the beacons on the wireless bridge interface)

2. Wireless survey does not work with 5G radio turned only (must turn on 2.4Ghz network)

3. Wireless Survey should include local information (my wireless configuration)

4. Turning on and off wireless radios kills LAN port (trying to recreate to discover sequence)

5. DOCSIS Event logs being erased

Thanks for the feedback @blues_clues. I will run some tests in the next few days on this and update the thread accordingly.

Re: FEEDBACK - Rogers Rocket Wi-Fi Modem Firmware Trial

Is there any progress on restoring Chromecast functionality? The only solution seems to be to revert back to the previous firmware and that isn't a good long-term solution.

Re: FEEDBACK - Rogers Rocket Wi-Fi Modem Firmware Trial

I got it working with a bit of a hodge-podge solution.

 

(By the way - my Chromecast works totally fine when the Rogers modem is in 'Bridge Mode' (I'm using an Apple Airport as my main router.) )

 

My solution only works if you have an existing wireless router you can use temporarily  .....

 

Basically what you need to do is put the rogers modem in bridge mode - setup the wireless network name (and passwords) on the 'non-rogers' wireless network - the same as what you intend to use on the rogers modem.

 

Get connected with your Chromecast - make sure things are OK 

 

Unplug the Chromecast - now get the rogers modem setup (in 'Gateway/Residential Mode) with the same wireless network name/passwords as what you used to set the Chromecast up in the previous step.

 

Turn on your Chromecast

 

Things should be good

 

In reality though ...... it should be 'fixed' .....

Re: FEEDBACK - Rogers Rocket Wi-Fi Modem Firmware Trial

I can confirm bridge mode with a seperate AP & router allows my chromecast to work. I can say I still had lots of issues since it would connect to my wifi (confirmed dhcp lease to pfsense log) but no interent access. Had to reboot the modem and seemed to work. I have applied for the trial firmware and should hopefully have it when I get home from work since the Lan port bug has been a pain.

@jetway2211, do you happen to have IPV6 disabled thru the pfsense router?

Re: FEEDBACK - Rogers Rocket Wi-Fi Modem Firmware Trial

Enabled at this point. Seems to be some issues that I haven't narrow down to being IPv6 but hence signing up for this trial as things aren't working as they should.
