Re: Rogers Hitron CODA-4582 Hardware

@wongnog the trial firmware will be pushed to your modem at some point.  As this is a holiday weekend, that might not happen until Tuesday.  Users are not able to update the modems firmware.  The exception to this is for users running trial firmware.  A Factory Reset will cause the modem to revert back to the current production firmware.  If that happens, either intentionally or unintentionally, then you will have to send a message to @CommunityHelps to have the trial firmware reloaded.

Re: Rogers Hitron CODA-4582 Hardware

I'm getting the new modem tomorrow.  Right now i have CGN3 and always found the web interface tedious and hard to work with. If the modem is not freshly rebooted, navigating the interface can take minutes (loads realllll slow).  Getting port forwards going, or trying to define static IP adresses for some of my devices was real tedious, i ended up getting an ASUS-RT66U to fix the issue.  Most of my devices are hard-wired so wifi wasn't a huge issue for me, living in an appartment.  The CGN3 couldn't reach outside on my deck but the ASUS could.<

 

How is the CODA-4582 ?  Is the web interface faster to work with?  Will i be able to define static IP adresses to some of my devices in the DHCP settings?  Or am i better off setting it to bridge mode and keep using my Asus?

 

I checked, my router has about 850mbit wan to lan throughput...  I intend on doing speedtests on the CODA-4582 and if i get speeds over 850+ i would tend to skip my asus altogether, if not i'm not sure what i'll do.

@stefer009 The interface design for the CODA-4582 is the same, but you are given more options and features. In terms of interface responsiveness, it's a night and day change coming from the CGN3. The modem pages load almost instantly and navigating is really seamless. 

 

The CODA-4582 is rated up to 1Gbps over wired, but taking consideration driver overhead, you will be getting a max of 950Mbps. 

 

For the features of the modem you can read more in this PDF.

Thanks for the info!

I'll probably just try to move all my port forwards etc. to the CODA-4582 and hope for the best, as I've read that my router has an OK Wan to Lan throughput but that can go down drastically if there's a couple of devices running at the same time, especially downloading or uploading stuff.

Got setup, using the CODA, but speedtests for upload are... dissapointing...  was hoping to reach 50mbit easily...  Done couple of tests, only goes over 30 sometimes.

Re: Rogers Hitron CODA-4582 Hardware

@wongnog, your modem should now be upgraded to the latest version (2.0.10.31).

 

@stefer009, did you recently sign up for Ignite Gigabit? All new plans have a maximum upload speed of 30 Mbps so your speedtest is actually pretty good.

Re: Rogers Hitron CODA-4582 Hardware

Ah geez.... It used to be 50 no??? Grrr... it took a year to convince sales to get me gigabit in my bundle, every time they tried it wouldn't work, it would have broke my promo.  Only yesterday were they able to do it and only the social media team were able to, on the phone they tried for an hour without any success... and now... its just 30 Smiley Sad

 

Well then, that explains it Smiley Sad

 

Half of the reason for upgrading was for the 50 up speed for when i upload to youtube, my dropbox, etc... streaming games on youtube or twitch Smiley Sad  I know... to stream I don't need 50 up, but to upload to youtube or facebook or dropbox, 50 was a lot better than 20... oh well!

 

Thanks for the info btw!

Re: Rogers Hitron CODA-4582 Hardware

Just wondering if there is a faster way to reset your IP address from the coda than unplugging it for 24 hours, or switching out the modem?

@brad102

 

which IP address? the IP address the CODA hands out to your devices? or the IP address Rogers provides to the Modem?

 

you can't switch the IP address that Rogers gives to the modem, it's fixed to the MAC address of the modem, it rarely changes unless they re-segment your node/cmts.

 

As for the IP address the modem hands out to devices you can change that by using static mapping.

Thanks @RogersDave! Is there a changelog somewhere to explain what is new in the updated software version?
