So now that i've got my 2dot modem with .24 up and running i'm noticing the same issue where the speed slows down over time and requires me to reboot the modem. Is this common, or should I try to replace it yet again. While gaming i noticed severe ping spikes last night that seem to resolve themselves, but when playing an FPS online, moments of lag can really ruin your experience. Anyone have any suggestions?
Prior to rebooting my modem just now my speed was down to about 100mbps on rogers speedcheck, i could not even get a test to get started on speedtest.net
Interesting. I'm assuming you rebooted the modem after being updated to .24? If not, do that as soon as you can. Regarding the speed slowdown, does it go down to 1-2Mbps?
Also, if you don't mind, it would be great if you can log into your modem, under STATUS navigate to DOCSIS WAN, and copy and post your Downstream, OFDM Downstream, and Upstream stats.
Have IPV6 now and good signals but no DOCSIS 3.1 showing up yet.
On original modem no black dots and in bridge mode with 68U Asus router
Am In Cambridge area is that why DOCSIS 3.1 not here, enabled yet?
Thanks much in advance
Most areas will be upgraded to DOCSIS 3.1 within a few weeks. There is no fixed schedule and where you live doesn't matter either, it's based on how many subscribers are running the new CODA Modem on that CMTS.
Thank you sir!
You're welcome. Also don't forget, if you have a splitter and amp inside your house....and it shows a VOIP out line.....do Connect your Modem cable to it. The Intek guy who installed mine....didn't know and connected the modem to an amplified Cable out port. It works but can/will cause Packet (data) loss.....so just FYI.
what speed should i expect on wifi? I swear I was getting atleast 300-700 on the black gigabit modem
on this new white wifi modem I get 60-200
rogers says this is normal?
WiFi is VERY unpredictable. If you used the exact same settings as your old black gigabit modem then you should be getting roughly the same speeds. For me, my speeds both wired and using WiFi stayed exactly the same when I exchanged my black gigabit modem for the new white CODA. This is because I used the exact same settings and set the modem up in the same spot.
If this is the spec of your Macbook Pro, your network card is only 2.4 Ghz:
Wi-Fi wireless networking2 (based on IEEE 802.11n specification); IEEE 802.11a/b/g compatible
The speed you are getting now is as good as it gets with the existing network card. This link from Apple could help you out as it talks about the issue you have: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7418648?start=0&tstart=0
You could check with the local Apple store to see what they suggest. Alternatively, you can check out the local Best Buy or Computer store to see what the options are. Keep in mind that most external USB based WiFi cards are USB 3.0 and your system has USB 2.0 which will slow down the speeds. You would be better off looking at FireWire 800 or Thunderbolt WiFi cards but they won't be very cheap (welcome to the Apple world).
Depending on how you use the Macbook Pro, you could go with a Powerline connection and plug one of them close to the router and one where you usually sit and use the 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet (RJ-45 connector) that you have to get the max speed. It is not elegant, but it will give you better speeds. The key is to get a GOOD powerline adapter and this link will help you with what you should get:
