Re: Technical reasons to move to the new CGN3ACR

Ok, so 192.168.100.1 does work if you connect directly to the second port but not if you connect through the firewall?  Have a look at this post from DSLReports.  Maybe you need to establish a firewall rule:

No firewall rules needed ... Hitron just needs to fix the way it advertises 192.168.100.1 ...

Perhaps Hitron needs to take a lesson from CISCO, Motorola, etc. Because they do it correctly. That was the whole point of my previouse post.

You will be pleased to learn that with the latest firmware upgrade HITRON fixed the 192.168.100.1 bug.

As of today, March 25, 2015, in bridge mode the login page now works properly.

Re: Technical reasons to move to the new CGN3ACR

Any improvements with wifi range?  I insisted on staying on my hybrid plan instead of upgrading to the ignite plans when I renewed earlier this month.  I use the CGN3 as a stand alone because when I attempted to connect it to my dlink router, my speeds on wifi would go down to 10mbps dispite the fact that it's 5ghz router. Never could figure out why and gave up on it.

While i dont have one.. i would DOUBT it.. unless they used a really different antenna in it.

Its still an internal antenna.

(as well, the CGN3ACR is not NEEDED for the new ignite plans, you can use a CGN3 just fine)
