Yes, I was aware of the change. However, I'm not using Windows at all to access the shared drive on the CODA-4582. 

I'm using "root explorer" on Android, which has been working correctly up until this last CODA-4582 firmware update. 

 

Checking the exposed network ports on the CODA-4582, I have discovered that the SMB services are not being offered any longer, unlike the previous trial firmware. Only TCP port 111 is being offered now. 

 

The CODA-4582 presents open TCP ports on two different IP addresses. The base one (for my default settings) is 192.168.0.1 and the other is at the top of the configured range, 192.168.0.254.

There should be more open TCP ports presented in order to offer SMB services.

What share are you advertising on the CODA via the USB? If that is not turned on, the CODA will not open the ports.  If the resource is not on the CODA, try accessing the destination share via IP instead of host name.

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

With good Internet deals going on I joined 1GB train yesterday.

I'm on 2.0.10.34T5 and I'm quite happy with speed performance.

Tests from Ontario, GTA area, over 20 Km to Toronto.

@zardoz99 @RogersDave @Datalink

Zardoz99, you are correct, the SMB USB Protocols seem to be lost on the CODA now. I made the Windows 10 correction months ago to solve what I thought was the CODAs issue. Now my drive is lost again.

I hate when we as Customers sit between the carrier who supplies a hardware, but does not fully support all of its functionality, and the Vendor who made it. And we cannot call Hitron as they will just say, sorry called your service provider as they might have disabled it or some how customized it. Yet Rogers doesnt touch the USB supposedly. Not to even begin with the fact the CODA was supposed to be USB 3.0 Supported but its only 2.0 AND all the other issues.

I have both a 4TB Ethernet WD and a 4TB USB WD, identical WD Drives, and only my network dirve is working, ive completely lost my USB. Both USB options are turned on, but no drive shows up on the CODA and my links from my computers have failed to discover it, and accessing where it should be at 192.168.0.1/diska1 fails and is not shown anymore on the USB device list.

Funny thing is, the USB port is deffinetly enabled, because the WD USB Drive wont turn on unless it detect USB Connection, and it does load up and begins reading the drive when plugged in, but just goes to sleep eventually.
Also, the USB light on the CODA is no longer on, even after unplug and replug of USB device.

Was deffinently working before this last update, I use both my drives to do back ups of my computers and the last backup on the 5th of March worked fine, but I got no connection notices yesterday for my USB drive.

Another big issue I've been having forever with these CODA modems is the DHCP Reservations dont seem to work consistantly. I have rules set for 90% of my devices, and yet, they dont get assigned the IPv4 they should get. AND even tho I've named them , they show up with the device name Unkown. I've checked every single device and made sure their internal settings are all set too obtain IP from DHCP so there is no custom static IPs set anywhere interfering, and all my switches are all set up correctly as switches and not creating additional DHCP networks that are fighting. I cant seem to ever get most things on the correct IP. Occationally some will get the right IP and work fine, but after a power failure or firmware update or network drop, anything that causes the modem to reboot, I loose them and things go all wonky again. I've had to go so far as to make my network Brother MFC Printer a static IP on its own interanl settings, because it constantly kept changing and not going to the one set within the CODA, so I set it internally to stay because I would always not be able to print and scan almost every other day.

But having to set my devices as static is an issue because, one, not each device can be logged into and set like that, I have a lot of smart home gear and wireless devices that connect thru their hubs and such, Two, I run VPN, Remote Desktop Software, and SQL Networked Databases from my computers, and they need to be on and assigned to the correct IPs to be found when Im off site using remote computers and laptops, and also in the event they need to be reset or power failure causes data loss, then I have to log in to each device to correct them, where as the CODA should already be forcing them onto the correct IP based on their MACs. What Im curious about is the IPv6, could the IPv6 addresses be making the IPv4 ones not correct becasuse for what ever reason the IPv6 gets assigned first and then it places the IPv4 addresses inorder based on the order of their IPv6 address instead of forcing the IPv4 listed in the DHCP reservation list? and would sacrificing the Gateway Mode firewall and manually setting the network IPs from the CODA in Bridge Mode make any difference? And to use Bridge Mode, would I need to make one of my switches run the DHCP or can I just set them within the CODA and any devices not listed just dont work?
I've never tried to use Bridge on any modem before due the firewall loss, sdo please excuse any stupid or illogical questions about it, I've just always used the safer method of allowing the modem to run things, but I've also expanded my networked devices ALOT in the alst 3 years so I need to look at how to manage over 20 devices and if the CODA is able to deal with them as awell as the smart hubs that add upto 40devices, light bulbs, swithces, cameras, thermostats, voice controls, ect. to my network, each. I notice this update was supposed to be addressing the issue it says, which im impressed about, but it doesnt seem to have corrected it.

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

Also, any know the differences between CODA hardware 1A and 2A, and should I be trying to switch out my 1A for a 2a, or even more to the point, should I be looking forward to another version of the CODA modem or possibly a whole new modem, like the Bell ones, with battery backup and fibe direct into the building?

Rumours and from financial statements only.

Can't comment on 1A versus 2A - someone in the CODA threads could probably answer that question.  There rumours of a new modem coming at some point, as described in the financial statements overview and video - that there will be a single modem for home phone, Ignite TV (or Comcast IPTV which is the underlying product), Ignite Internet, and Home Security all coming into the one modem (the latest Bell gateway provides that complete connectivity through one modem although I am not sure if they have home security.

 

As for fibe direct into the building, very unlikely in near future - everything currently is invested in changing up the DOCSIS Cable Internet to the next upgrades of the CMTS to improve latency and upload speeds, fibe to the building is unlikely.

My suggestion is that you BRIDGE the CODA and get your own quality Router if you want to have the kind of capability and reliability you expect. FYI, I have many Bell Clients who all have replaced their Bell HH3000 integrated gateways for a custom solution [one that I provide] that services their needs --- and they have done so because of the many issues they all run into --- issues very similar to your issues .
