Re: Rogers Hitron CODA-4582 Hardware

Oh, the little pains in life - just kidding - drives me nuts too and always trying out ideas - Maybe I will try out the tape and see what happens.

 

Oh, and on the splitter question - in my home, Rogers ran a separate dedicated line to my modem, and the PVR is on another line.  They told me that it was best to have the modem separate from Cable feed.  There is a splitter on that modem Internet run though that feeds the home phone terminal.

 

So not sure what is setup is best.

 

Me thinks we are getting a bit bored with the beta work and things doing weird stuff with the new modems.  We have digressed into the little things - like blinking leds and how best to set up our connections and splitters, and how to hide our modems away if possible.

 

Oh well, at least it is a distraction. Smiley Happy

Re: Rogers Hitron CODA-4582 Hardware

I did a Google search but this is probably better. I'm having a problem when I try to browse files on a shared drive on another computer within my network. It does work, but, extremely slow. So anytime I use Windows Explorer and navigate the folders it will take so long that it always displays the green progress bar at the top for several minutes. I thought perhaps it was the quantity of files so I tried to navigate a different computer that has significantly less files but it still has the same issue. Tried to change the View configuration so it never displays thumbnails but it made no difference. Disabled the Search service but again the same problem. Also tried different network cards but results are the same. The funny thing is it works perfectly fine if I use a wired connection instead of wireless. This is not an issue of speed or interference as browsing web sites is fine and there's no degradation of speed. This use to work fine when I had my old modem but ever since upgrading to the CODA-4582 I've been experiencing this issue. Perhaps it's a coincidence? The modem is on firmware 2.0.10.19 and is hardware revision 1A. Thanks.

This sounds like the same problem I was encountering. Apparently the latest beta firmware fixes this issue. You might want to sign up for the trial.

Re: Rogers Hitron CODA-4582 Hardware

It has been over two weeks now with no updates whatsoever. I can't keep rebooting my modem every 4 hours. What happen to @RogersDave? We need to be kept in the loop! Please provide us an update.

Thanks for the reply! So how do I sign up to get the beta firmware? 

 

UPDATE - Did a search and got my answer. Thanks.

Re: Rogers Hitron CODA-4582 Hardware

to the folks here who have signed up for the .23 beta firmware - how is the stability of this beta firmware? i don't want to sign up and start having issues as i'm currently on .19 and it seems very stable.

 

i want to sign up as i've read the beta release fixes the shared drive access issues.

You've kinda answered your own question in the last line.  Do you need network sharing/mapped drive access?  Do you care if you can see what's connected to the router?  If you answered yes to either of these, then it's probably worth the gamble.

.19 is stable -- if you want to call it that -- as long as you don't need the fixes involved.  If you've read in the forum what the trial firmware has fixed or hopes to fix, and you need the features, it makes sense to take the plunge.  As with ANY trial, you run other risks of bumping into issues but not having the ability to share on my network is a deal-breaker.

Re: Rogers Hitron CODA-4582 Hardware

thanks, but i meant the overall stability of .23 compared to .19.

i do want the network share issue fixed, but not at the expense of instability.

so the question is, for ppl that are on .23, is it as stable as .19?

That's a difficult question to answer. I would say most people who had stable .19 are happy with .23, most people who had unstable .19 are still unstable with .23, and a few people think .23 made things bad.

That's why I answered it the way I did above.  The answer, as they they, is truly an "it depends" type of answer.  If you need the features that have been addressed since .19 was pushed, then it's a no-brainer.  I can't say from my own experience since I'm still waiting for the trial to be pushed but everything I've read makes it sound like .23 is better (for the most part).
