I also want to know if it is better to upgrade to this hardware? I currently have a CGNM-3552 which is giving me a lot of disconnection issues and currently on a gigabit plan.
I am curious to see if anyone tried to play online games yet with the new modem?
If so how's the ping now vs your old modem.
I am only getting the CODA 4582 on December 22th.. I am very excited but can't wait at the same time!
Played some Xbox last night, It was glorious for me, I was in pure bliss. I had much better latencey end to end while twitch streaming Jackbox 3, cut down my delay to the people i was playing with watching the stream from average 18 seconds to 8-9 it made a huge difference, My sister noticed right away on her end the game was much more synced to me when the questions on quiplash were being announced.
Also I found it MUCH easier to get in to the same server instance on Elite Dangerous as my wing mates, it actually went . near seemeless when usually its a bit of a fumble to get us all in the same instance, especially when im wing leader.
Today I am going to try streaming some Witcher 3 from my pc tower to my work rig and see what the network health looks like. I have kept track of it in the past with end to end latency tracking and ping and packet loss and will report if it improves.
Hitron CODA-4582 Hardware & internet speed issues
I am in the Orillia area, and currently using the Rogers Hitron CODA-4582 Hardware.... Prior to using it, i was getting fast download speeds of around 600mbps, but since connecting the Rogers Hitron CODA-4582 Hardware my download speed has slowed right down to 100mbps.
Does anyone have any tips on what I can do to get my internet speed back?
What was your ping before vs now?
You are not the only person who has run into this speed issue and there are currently some other people testing and working on whats going on. All of the information on what is going on is under the "Modem Trial Firmware Feedback" posting. @RogersDave has some tests and information that you should look through and try to begin looking at the issue (Post Information)
100ms? That's horrible...
I still have the old Rogers gigabit (CGNM-3552) and I've never seen pings higher than 10ms, usually I have about 7 or so...
I highly double a replacement modem will cut your ping by 90% unless your home network was incorrectly configured before?
I get about 900mbps with my modem in bridge mode, and great ping. I'm hesitant to do any "early" upgrades. If it aint broken, don't fix it. Especially if it means making a phone call to Rogers support...
