Yes I understand. Intel chip/firmware issue. I can't use a different modem on Rogers' service though so ultimately it becomes a modem issue.
I appreciate that code takes time to go from lab to production factoring in all the stakeholders, service provider priorities, shareholders etc to maintain a service presumably to hundreds of thousands of customers. I also appreciate that some problems are lower priority than others. If 500 customers are threatening to leave because their favorite MMO lags I'm sure that will receive more attention that the 12 people complaining about specific VPN issues.
@RogersSergio any mention of where IPSec/VPN throughput issues is on the list of issues being looked at would be nice. I'm willing to provide any data, testing, try beta firmware, whatever might help. But it would be nice to know if it's even on the radar and for when. Weeks, months, years.
I wanted to mention that after receiving firmware update 184.108.40.206T1 yesterday speeds over IPSec VPN have been much better.
File copy over RDP
Previously 1-2 MB/s. Currently 5-7 MB/s.
File copy over ssh
Previously 1-2 MB/s. Currently ~10MB/s
Probably more to do with the reboot than anything but who knows ...
Having the same issues like you have been describing.
Apparently the 220.127.116.11T1 firmware was rolled back. Are you back on 18.104.22.168T6 or did you get the latest 22.214.171.124T2 ? I'm on 126.96.36.199T6 and hoping the newest firmware will fix the issue.
I can't even connect to my work VPN with my new Hitron CODA-4582U. With my previous Advanced Wi-Fi it worked flawlessly. I used to set it up in a bridged mode with a Airport Extreme. With this new modem, I only once got it to connect when not using bridge mode. If I turn on my phone and use it as a hotspot, I can connect everytime. I'm just using the VPN connection in Windows 10. L2TP/IPsec.
Rogers says they don't support VPN's. Does anyone have any suggestions? Why would I be able to get it to connect one time and then not the next time?
Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums! 🙂
Thank you for posting your concern in the Community. Unable to connect to the work VPN can surely be inconvenient. If you were able to connect to the work VPN when the modem was in gateway mode; then we can rule out the modem.
What VPN client are you using to connect to your work network? When you switched the modem and reconnected your Airport Extreme have you made any changes to it?
Looking forward to more details about the issue so that the Community can share their expertise to help find the solution.
I exchanged the Hitron modem on Sunday and brought it home and configured it as a Residential Gateway NOT bridged. Had VPN connectivity all day after configuration. Tested again on Monday after work connected again. Decided to put into bridge mode with Airport Express, VPN dead. Brought it back to Residential Gateway, no VPN. Factory reset, still no VPN. Firmware version on modem is 188.8.131.52T3.
I plan on exchanging the modem and seeing if I can setup the modem again as I had done on Sunday and see if it stays functioning correctly. Is it possible that there is a bug in the firmware that when the unit is put into gateway it blocks VPN? Internet traffic is fine.
Update. I re-tried setting up the bridge connection the same way as always with the Airport Extreme and this time it is working. Nothing done differently, yet it seems to work fine...
Can't say what the resolution is, but thank you for responding to my posting RogersMoin.
