New CODA-4582 firmware - strange results in DOCSIS table & strange internet issue
Hi everyone, yesterday (Dec 3rd), I lost internet connectivity during work (I work from home full time) and noticed it was because my CODA was rebooting. When it came back online, all the lights were fine (downlink light indicated it was running in 3.1 mode), but I started to randomly drop my Skype and Microsoft Teams calls/meetings. I NEVER had this issue prior to yesterday. Speed tests and the internet in general all seem fine...it's really just the issues with Skype/Teams as far as I can tell for now. When I logged into the CODA, I found some strange results. See pics attached below. SW version is 126.96.36.199. The system time is incorrect. And with respect to my upstream overview, I now see 4 additional channels (total of 8 with channels 4-8 being blank). Also, the signal strength of channels 1-4 has increased from what used to be 32-33 dB to what's now 37-38 dB. I would not be posting this if everything worked fine, but I've been having a lot of issues with Skype and Teams, which started happening when I received this update...it can't be coincidence. I've manually rebooted the CODA but the results are the same. Is anyone else experiencing similar results?
PLEASE REVERT ME BACK TO 36T6 and take me off the firmware trial testing. I no longer want to be an early adopter/tester of new firmware.
Since the firmware changed to 188.8.131.52, I lost internet connection for 3 times. I need to reboot the router to resolve the problem. Not very impressive!!
The loss of Internet connection especially while working from home can be quite inconvenient! I see you have already sent a private message to CommunityHelps, we have sent off the request to look into it. Thank you so much for your patience.
We have identified the issue a few members here experienced (and helped resolve) where GUI access and in some cases connectivity is lost. A reboot would often fix this for a short time, but the modem would eventually revert to this state.
Luckily we have been able to implement the fix in the configuration of the current code and don't require a complete new build to resolve this particular issue.
This fix was applied this morning, so for anyone on 184.108.40.206 who has been experiencing lack of GUI access and/or connectivity issues please monitor your connection for the next day or so and let me know if you see an improvement.
We will also be upgrading our next batch of modems during the overnight window. Those of you still on 220.127.116.11T6 please keep an eye out.
Thanks again for everyone's support, you have been instrumental in finding and fixing these issues.
I would like to become a tester but I have had this ongoing issue (18.104.22.168T6) when the modem lands on Receiver 0 in the OFDM downstream overview my internet becomes crippled to 5-10 Mbps down. This problem will happen with firmware updates or a Factory reset. I have figured out a way to get it to move to receiver 1 but will still get degraded speeds on the 1GBPS Package Approx 400 -500 download. @RogersIan I have also sent you a few PMS on this matter. Hoping to get this issue resolved prior beta testing.
Hi I've been with Rogers for a week and have had non-stop bufferbloat issues with my Coda-4582u. Can't play any online games because there's crippling latency spikes every 5-20 seconds.
I'm currently on firmware 22.214.171.124T6. I've spent every week night trying to manipulate my settings and reading over forum after forum of people complaining about this issue with this modem.
My question is, is there any way to get rid of this bufferbloat without buying and bridging another router, would getting the trial firmware help? How do I go about getting the trial firmware?
If I can't get my 500 plan to perform better than my old TekSavvy 50 plan, then I'm going to switch back to TekSavvy..
and post your situation in that thread so that @RogersAndy can have a look at the details. No guarantees, but, hopefully Andy can resolve the situation for you.
Fwiw, the TPIAs on RCable are now obtaining access to the Technicolor TC4400 modem which is a Broadcom BCM-3390 chipset modem, not an Intel modem. So, I'd expect the performance for that chipset to be pretty good, but, having said that, you would have to look into the weeds to really see any difference between an Intel Puma 7 modem, which is what you have, and a Broadcom BCM-3390 modem. The average user wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the two modem. Now having said that, the one test that might show a difference is a FLENT test, which is a multi-protocol test, testing specifically for simultaneous throughput and latency with multiple protocols. Its been a while since a test was run for the 4582 modem so its a good question as to whether or not there has been any degradation in performance since the last test was run in 2017:
