Any idea when the firmware newer than 184.108.40.206 will be release? What if we want to revert to an older firmware? The current issue of not being able to use the Guest network is very annoying as now I'm left with using my primary network for guests. As well, is this issue fixed for modems that have the black dot since it does not work for mine?
One mroe question... If the next firmware resolves all my issues, can I remain on that firmware and opt out of future beta releases? It is great that the slow file browsing issue got resolved but now I'm dealing with no Guest network access and am tired of this firmware lottery.
I have read in another post that there is another Coda with 2 black dots available. Is this correct and does anyone know what the changes are?
single black dot or 2 black dot there is no difference, it was just a logistics thing... The hardware is all the same.
@David161 you can opt out of the Trial Firmware Program at any time, but, all that will happen is that your modem will update to the production firmware whenever that version is released. That will continue in the future whenever there are updates of the production firmware.
@David161 I have no idea when 220.127.116.11 will be released, but it should be within the next 2-3 weeks. If you're on 18.104.22.168T2 you cannot revert to an older firmware. HOWEVER, if you are on the trial version of 22.214.171.124 and want to revert to the network version, 126.96.36.199T2 you can reset the modem by pressing the reset pin at the back of the modem for 10 seconds and then release.
The issue with guest network does not effect if you have the black-dot modem. It is a firmware issue which means that users with 188.8.131.52T2 and above will still experience the issue nontheless.
If you don't have the black dot modem, I would take the time to switch it out for one of the black-dot ones just to ensure that you have the shielding in place.
Thanks guys for the quick answers.
I prefer to confirm myself and proceeded to downgrade to 184.108.40.206T2 with the reset button at the back of the modem. Sure enough, the issue still persists.
So, I guess I'll have to try and find a modem with the black dot 😞
So, silly question time..
I factory reset my modem because I saw I wasn't getting the IPv6 address, and saw some recommendations to do so. After the restart I see that I have one now but the issue became when I went to IPv6-test.com and it said that my IPv6 address was unreachable.
It may help knowing that on my Archer C3200 I have everything set to IPv6, and to automatically detect the IP, but I was reading somewhere that if the IPv6 gateway had the prefix fe80:... or so on, that it wouldn't be able to connect to anything which is what I have in this case. Should I give Rogers a call or is there something I can try doing?
I'm also on the 220.127.116.11T2 if that's any help.
@Hiitchy, can you flip the modem into Gateway mode, log into the modem and check the STATUS page to determine if both IPV4 and IPV6 addresses are present in the upper right hand corner of the Status data which is the WAN IP address block. If there is no IPV6 address present, that should be reported to @RogersDave so that he can pass this on to the network engineering staff to look at. If that is the case, please send Dave a pm with your Modem's MAC address.
If you have an IPV6 address present, run the same test at ipv6-test.com to see what turns up. Then run an IPV6 trace to google: tracert -6 www.google.com
That trace should run all the way to google. If it hangs anywhere and times out, please send Dave your Modem's MAC address and the trace. To copy the trace, right click on the Command box title bar and select .... Edit ... Select All. Then right click again and select .... Edit .... Copy. Then you can paste that into the message.
When thats all done, flip the modem back into Bridge mode .... done.
