Interesting the so many can run the CODA-4582 in bridge mode. I tried several times and my router will not get an IP from the CODA. I called tech support who consulted with a Level 2 tech and was advised there is a known issue with the new modem that is causing the LAN ports to shut off when the modem is bridged. I'm back to running it in gateway mode. Anyone else had this problem?
I am also having the same issue with my d link glad to know it is a known issue hopefully it'll be resolved soon.
Here's my results on CODA-4582
Tests are done hard wired on port 4
A bit worse than previous modem , blufferboat higher and usualy always get A in quality now I get B.
Similar to preivous modem
Ping is similar to previous modem, however less jitter, more stable less var ( still room for improvement , hopefully DOCSIS 3.1 will lower that ping down).
Fwiw, I've used my CODA-4582 in Bridge mode since the day that I picked it up. I've also flipped the modem into Gateway mode and back into Bridge mode without any issue, and connected a pc to a second port when the modem is in Bridge mode. I use a Asus RT-AC68U and haven't seen any issues with it picking up an IP address. For the pc, I'll usually run an ipconfig/release, ipconfig/renew command and follow that with a reboot to ensure that the Windows 10 pc picks up an IP address with the modem in Bridge mode.
Painful as it might be, consider trying a factory reset for the router with the modem in Bridge mode. That reset should wipe out any previous modem data that the router might hold and the router should reconnect after the reset and reboot. It would be interesting to see someone with a D-Link router try this and report back on any success or continued failure. The worst part will be resetting the router parameters, but if the factory reset works, it will be a small price to pay.
Running a factory reset on a consumer router should be a normal practice when switching modems in order to avoid problems that some users are seeing. Thats for occasions when you switch modems within the same ISP, or if you're changing ISPs which results in a modem change.
I tried putting this router/modem into bridge mode to use another router but once I disable the Residential Gateway Function the 3rd party router no longer has access to the internet.
Anyone able to successfully but this model in bridge mode and use their own router?
I have the same issue. I exchanged my modem yesterday, once I put the CODA in bridge mode my router (TP-Link Archer AC2600) cannot get an IP address from Roger's DHCP server thus no internet connection. My router had no problem with the previous modem.
Anyone experience the same and exchange the modem again?
I exchanged the modem twice just in case if it was hardware issue, same both times.
Try the other three ports on the back and see if that makes a difference.
I tried all ports, same issue.
Technical support are clueless
@markopas, thanks very much. It looks like you have tried just about every combination without success. From looking at your results, I suspect that the only way to determine what the problem might be is to run a passive tap between the modem and a D-Link router to see the traffic that is passed between the two as the router boots up. Thats an @RogersDave or Hitron task to run in order to determine what message traffic is actually running versus what should be running.
@Datalink- one suggestion which has worked a previous user with the same DIR-895L router was to apply the DD-WRT firmware but that is not solution that everyone can apply or feel comfortable in doing as it's not a universal fix for all who are experiencing the same issue. You can read above with other users that I am one of many who are running in to the same issue and not just D-Link.
I have yet to try it (DD-WRT firmware) but I wanted to wait for the new 4582 firmware that @RogersDave is pushing before going this route.
I know the bridged mode works when I plug in my laptop into it, it grabs an ip without issue.
For online gaming, very small improvements like I said it's more stable but the ping is still high, good news is that it's stable and not as much jitter.
I am confident that with DOCSIS 3.1 and future firmware updates the ping will finally go down.
