Internet and Wifi Disconnecting Daily

RRwest
I've been around

Hello, need assistance with an on going issue since Rogers Ignite was installed over a year ago. Internet, phone and TV are all using the Ignite service, and I am experience daily drops in Wifi. When Wifi disconnects, it will last about 5 minutes, TV will also go black, phone continues to work along with any wired devices. This has occurred almost daily for the past year, sometimes multiple times a day.  The issue often resolves itself within 5 minutes and pods will begin flashing after the Wifi reconnects. After a couple minutes they stop flashing.

About 3 times per week, everything will disconnect including wired/ wireless devices and phone line/ TVs. The Xb6 modem will flash yellow, and eventually flash white then turn solid white. I have called Rogers numerous times, without receiving any information as to what could be causing this issue (I am always told the connection looks good from their end after a 1-2 hour conversation). We have tried using pods/ not using pods, moving modem and pod locations, disabling any device not in use, unplugging modem. The modem and pods have been replaced, TV boxes have been replaced. We even upgraded our internet to the Ignite Internet 500u package for a month to see if that would make a difference, which it did not. We have had more tech visits than I can remember, each time we are simply told everything appears to be ok. We really need some assistance, as this is getting ridiculous at this point, we simply cannot call Rogers every day and request a tech is sent out only to be told the exact same thing as before. When the internet is connected the speed is great, however it is not reliable.

Thanks for the offer of assistance.   For now the problem seems to have fixed itself.

I have these exact issues. It happened maybe once or twice daily before, but today it's been going non stop. Just constant disconnect and then it goes to orange flashing reboot.

Hey @Tmhage!

 

Sorry to hear you're having issues with your service connectivity! Sounds like there may be an issue with the RF signal to your modem. Have you spoken with Rogers support yet to determine if it's a local issue requiring a technician or if it's a larger concern that needs maintenance?

 

Keep us posted!

Re: Internet and Wifi Disconnecting Daily

Multiple daily disconnects on Ignite. My modem resets itself at least two times a day, a lot more some days. It usually stays offline for approximately 2-3 minutes and comes back on. 

 

We subscribe to the fastest Internet service. 
Support so far:
•Constant resets of the modem
•Two tech visits

•One modem replacement

•New router for in the house

 

We don't have another option with the speed we need for our home or we would have switched already. At a loss for what to try next.

 

Re: Internet and Wifi Disconnecting Daily

Hi @RainbowConnect,

 

Thank you for your very first post and welcome to the Community!

 

It looks like you have completed a lot of the troubleshooting and we appreciate the information provided. 

 

A few things if we can ask just to rule out. Is the modem itself plugged directly into the outlet or is it connected into a power bar? 
Also are you using your own router? 
What is the light pattern on the modem when you lose connection? 

 

Some of our Residential Experts may also be able to provide some further information @Datalink @Gdkitty @-G-

 

Thank you and we are looking forward to your reply.

Re: Internet and Wifi Disconnecting Daily

@RogersJermaine  What additional stats are you (or your support teams) able to look at to troubleshoot this problem?  Is some other glitch occurring that causes a primary channel in a downstream bonding group to go down, which could trigger some modem/gateways to reset or cause others to reset the DOCSIS WAN interface and reregister?

 

We're looking for something that could occur even when line conditions and noise stats look good.  If D3.1 upstream is enabled or the area has been upgraded to R-PHY, we could also be dealing with some interoperability issues between the modem/gateway and the CMTS or DAA Node.

Re: Internet and Wifi Disconnecting Daily

Hey @-G-

 

Our tools will give us information on the signal levels, making sure the transmit and receive levels are good, and everything is in the correct specifications.

We can see if there is any history of area issues. Compare results from prior tests that may of been run with an agent. Those are things that we use to help determine causes of intermittency.

 

We do not have much information on the D3.1 upstream status.

 

Taking a deeper look, if we have had two of our technicians out and swapped out the modem we want to just verify if anything else can be causing the issue such as a power bar or another router. 

 

 

Cheers 
RogersJermaine
