Re: new firmware 4.2.4.5

Overnight I too got the 4.2.4.5 firmware update. I don't see anything different yet. 

 

EDIT: One of my posts I complained about higher pings, but my pings went down from 100 to 88 ping on League of Legends.

Re: new firmware 4.2.4.5

i have a post about this 'Does it actaully fix .. '

 

  so far NO.

 

 

i got 4.2.4.5 .   Still UNACCEPTABLE flaky ping time to router 192.168.0.1

 

 

im gonna go back tomorrow, demand my old modem , call in ,, setup cancellation.

 

 

that should give me till after xmas to find a new provider that can stand behind (and properly support) their own systems , and related hardware.

 

 

Been with rogers since '98 at my current house.  

 

See ya .

letalsniper,

 

have a look at your list of wireless clients, button at the bottom of the Wireless page in Status... see what they are getting for RSSI, bandwidth and rate

Re: new firmware 4.2.4.5

I'm pretty sure that my firmware was upgraded, but I too can no longer access the modem through 192.168.100.1. I'm also hesitant on switching it back to gateway mode as getting it back to bridge seems to be an issue. Do you guys think that the new firmware is just presenting a different subnet for GUI?

LYuan:

 

I copied all the settings from my CGN3 after the update and put them in a Word document. I just checked the subnet mask, and it's the same as it was before (255.255.255.0).

 

I did a factory reset to get into the CGN3 after receiving the update and had no problem turning the residential gateway off. Everything's been working fine other than losing the ability to log in to the CGN3. When some people who are better at this stuff than I am take a closer look at the problem, I'm hoping there will be a simple solution.

Re: new firmware 4.2.4.5

Looks like the firmware version 4.2.4.5 didn't do anything for ping times to the modem other than get rid of abnormally high times.  Here's a before and after comparison looking at the end of 1000 ping runs.  The ping times are unstable in both cases.

 

 

Firmware Version 4.2.4.3

Ping statistics for 10.0.0.1:
    Packets: Sent = 1000, Received = 1000, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 101ms, Average = 5ms

 

Note the high maximum, although rare.  High times like these would pop up every so often.

Same average ping time observed with lower maximum ping times.

Re: new firmware 4.2.4.5

time for a third party router eh?

 

well it was time for one a long time ago if one's willing to pay for it

 

the 4.2.4.5 firmware indeed fixed the 10/100 problem... connected via ethernet at 100Mbps and lo and behold, 95 on the dial with the Hybrid 60

 

doesn't fix the WiFi link rate problems though... hopefully one day a firmware release provides better, stable bandwidth on the 2.4Ghz band

Re: new firmware 4.2.4.5

just off the phone with tech support... from what i was told, they are trying to rollback the 4.2.4.5 firmware due to problems

 

here's the deal... i called in earlier today and they ran some tests... was told that i had some packet loss... i had been upgraded to 4.2.4.5, so i suggested it was the new firmware as nothing changed since the last recent ticket while i was still on 4.2.4.3... on that ticket was recorded zero packet loss... yet on 4.2.4.5, i ended up with some packet loss... great

 

so i went to the store and swapped the modem... back to 4.2.4.3 now... asked tech support to check it and i'm back to zero packet loss... the rep said they were aware of the problem and they are backing out of the 4.2.4.5 firmware now... that's what i was told

 

also heard that they are working on getting a better router from Cisco, no bull... there is still some hope yet...

Does Cisco make a 24x8 (or more) channel D3 gateway? I can't find anything with more than 8 downstream channels on their site...
