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

@blues_clues, @zardoz99, @WestPoint@Datalink

 

All,

This issues was identified and resolved in the 2.0.10.34T6 firmware that was rolled out on Friday. I have updated the release notes in the top thread to reflect the included update. I missed adding this entry when I was updated the post.

 

The issue was identified during testing of the 34T5 code and was tied to the updates made to fix the wifi issues we were experiencing in the 33T3 which we fixed in the 33T11... the fix was carried over.

 

Please let me know if there are any continuing issues with USB/SMB support; if you have not received the 34T6 code please send me a private message with your mac and i will make sure you are upgraded.

 

Cheers,

RogersSergio

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

@RogersSergiothanks for the update.  Question.  I have a WD USB 3 drive that is still not recognized by the Coda.  Has USB 3.0 been fixed or are there still outstanding issues with it?

 

thanks

Sorry but that fix is not in this release, we have an upcoming test build that should add the support for USB3.0 devices falling into USB2.0 mode. I am confirming if we have a fix for the full USB3.0 support.

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

@RogersSergio Thanks, my USB SMB is working now.

Still having the DHCP issue, another user above mentioned in his testing the first 9 DHCP Reservations are working but after 10 they go random but still say reserved in the table of connected devices.
Mine are just random, my first few arnt working and the middle ones are and the rest arnt.

 

Also, just curious, are the CODA modems capable of 802.11ac or 802.11ad for the wifi? if not, is rogers at all considering chaing modems again for the gigabit wifi boost? Netgear Nighthawk has a VERY impressive gaming router with 7 gigabit ethernet ports, quadcore processor, and a bunch of amazing things for a router to have, including wifi beam forming and 802.11ac/ad capability.

Im considering going out and making a purchase of one of these devices as they guaruntee +20 device DHCP support and 2 USB 3.0 ports and everything else; BUT if Rogers is AT ALL considering a move to this tech, or even a modem with battery back up, I would hold off on this, but if there is no plan to change from the CODA, and there is no 802.11ac/ad support and the DHCP isnt capable of many devices, than Ill cut my losses, and throw the CODA into Bridge mode and buy a Nighthawk and just use its massive capabilites to run everything. 


The reason I really would rather not is because I KNOW that I will still never get full speed thru this method, that the delay between the CODA and the Netgear will still be there and noticeable and just another reason to get snarky answers from people that my hardware is causing the slow network not the CODA or somthing else like the lines or the local S-Hub.

My USB HDD is also USB 3.0, 4TB, and its working fine. I know its a 2.0 port, and thats why I cant stream videos or music from it without skipping and buffering constantly, but its still good for data back up and general storage. So not sure that USB 3.0 drives arnt working, it may be your HDD format ??

Im now using my 4TB Ethernet HDD for streaming instead, just takes time to move my CD/DVD RIPs from one to the other when they are both almost full with a multitude of files and folders..

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

@RogersSergio I cant do this during the week, with running my business and needing my network up for off site employees, but this coming weekend, I will do a complete shut down of all my devices and switches and hubs, and check all my DHCP reservations, and then do a devices by device boot up, letting the CODA fully boot with a new WIFI SSID so no devices can auto connect, and then I will begin connecting and turning on my network devices one at a time, and then connect my WIF ones.

 

After I do that, I should have a pretty good Idea if the DHCP is fully working or paritally working and what ranges are not getting their proper IPs.

 

But I do have one other question, is there a theoretical MAX number of devies the CODA can handel? Like 100 or somthing? Should it not be able to handel as many as possible, atleast the IP range 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0. 254, so 252 addresses? with a subnet of 255.255.255.0, if the devices cant handle that, is it not capable of expansion than, opening up the subnet and allowing more devices?

 

ALSO, do the IPv6 adresses come out of the subnet availability? like does each device get an IPv4 address & IPv6 and that counts as 2 subnet addresses? so 50 devices is really 100 in the subnet? or am I just talking nonsense now lol?

Why not just run another DHCP server out of the range of the CODA ones and use that server for DHCP reservations?  Seems kinda drastic to abandon the CODA.  Let's hear from Hitron if there is, indeed,  a limit for DHCP reservations.

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

@WestPoint@blues_clues

 

I have asked the question of Hitron but based on my understanding their is no concern with supporting at least the 252 addresses... depending on how they are connected there may be some performance challenges (don't want that many wifi devices connected).

 

The second part of your ask... no IPv6 and IPv4 are separate so you are not halving your subnet availability.

IPv4 leverages the IP pool defined within the ui while the IPv6 address is handed out from one of the IPv6 address Rogers hands out to the gateway.

 

Cheers,

RogersSergio
