I tried unplugging modem and 3rd party router.
This problem seems to happen more frequently. I am now entering the info into my phone (notes) - time/day of disconnection and duration.
It went down Tuesday and now today. I don't recall how long it was out last time. Maybe 30 min or 1 hr total?
I also use a wifi Smart TV.
It has reconnected a few times only to drop 5 mins (estimate) later. Sometimes the speed is normal but often, the connection is at a much lower speed suggesting a problem.
I am wondering if there's an issue.
After numerous calls for technical support and visits from technicians during the last several months, all of which could find nothing wrong, and all of whom recommended different solutions, I finally relocated my home office to the room with the modem and connected directly to the modem with an ethernet cable. That seemed to resolve the internet dropping problem except when the computer restarted or "woke up"; then I would have to wait a minute or two for the internet to be available. Then yesterday, something changed; internet is now immediately available when the computer wakes up, and download is between 25% to 100% faster than before. I didn't change anything, and I hope that this continues. If I have time, I may test whether wi-fi has become reliable again.
Whoever has CODA 4582 and had his OFDMA disabled, do you have lower speed test results?
I used to measure ~ 450-480 speed on 300/20 package.
Now for at least 10 days I measure 215 the most. I measure by directly connecting laptop to modem in DMARC point
Does it mean that it is the impact of OFDMA being disabled? But it does not make sense, since OFDA was upstream, and downstream should not have been impacted.
Please let me know.
Actually the opposite for me, @doctor80. Before OFDMA was disabled, I'd consistently get 300/15 on a wired connection and about 230/15 on a wireless connection. Since OFDMA was disabled, I'm getting over 400/15 on both wired and wireless.
Also, disabling OFDMA was definitely the fix for my issues... no noticeable drops on PingPlotter and smooth video calls/gaming in the last two weeks.
for about ~2 weeks now I started seeing the following problem: during Microsoft Teams call, I stop hearing the other side for few seconds, and then it continues. Few minutes later, the same audio issue repeats. And this happens on both iPhone and PC
Kid is using Zoom / Google, and experiencing similar issue - audio/video just periodically freezing during the class
Nothing changed on our side - network configuration, network load, etc. - and was working relatively well, but March 4/5 it became unbearable to the point that I could not do my meetings anymore.
- Ignite Gigabit service
- Modem: CODA-4582U in bridge mode, current FW 188.8.131.52 (signed up to get 184.108.40.206)
- Routers: ASUS RT-AX86u, in mesh mode, running latest Merlin FW
- wifi clients using AX/AC; AX connects at 2402Mbps, AC clients connect at 650Mbps, wired at gigabit
(very close to the router)
Called Rogers support, they say my line is good, and there are no issues in my neighborhood.
Am I the only one having such problem?
Just to update on my previous posts in this thread, for my specific issue, which I believe many were having but not everyone:
This issue may finally be resolved. A couple weeks ago there was an outage on my street I think for an hour or two and I found a Rogers tech outside. He said there was some kind of intermittent signal issue and he was going from box to box to isolate it. (I asked what could cause this and he mentioned wet wires and other things that could affect the wire/signal)
I am not sure what he ended up doing, but I believe I have not seen the intermittent disconnect issue that I was consistently having since he was on the street. I will keep monitoring to be sure.
So it seems its possible that there is an actual issue beyond the local home environment which could be causing this, but Rogers seems totally unaware of it or they have no way of detecting it until it gets worse. (Its also possible it was a coincidence or that issue is not actually resolved yet.)
mine has been turned back on as well. Let's see what happens now....
I wish somebody from Rogers would come on here and let us know what improvements they made in the interval being switched off to now. With three people working from home, it's been bliss not having the constant disconnects, now the anxiety starts again.
