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. IMG_1434.JPG

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.

There should be some option on the modem to set the time to upgarde the firmware. I've upgraded the firmware twice recently and both times I was doing stuff when it started the upgrade. Really annoying.

Just a quick question, does the New CODA-4582 modem/router allow DNS Port-Forwarding?  The previous modem did not.

 

Thanks,

Derek

No ISP Provided Gateway supports DD-WRT Firmware, however you can put the Gateway into Bridge Mode and use a third party router with DD-WRT.

Re: Rogers Hitron CODA-4582 Hardware

I am using the 4582 for my wireless. How do you increase the speed if possible. Im on my 2011 MacBook Pro about 20 feet away from the modem. There is a wal. On 5Ghz network I am getting about 150 mbps down..any way to make this number better?

@tester2013 make sure to use WPA2 for security, with AES Encryption. Also set the Channel to 149 or higher.

If this is the spec of your Macbook Pro, your network card is only 2.4 Ghz:

 https://support.apple.com/kb/sp619?locale=en_US

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:
