If its intermittent, the bad or slow periods could be due to nothing more than the cable blowing around in the wind, or moisture entering the cable, considering that its fairly old. They only last so long before they have to be replaced. The best that could happen is that it fails altogether. Then it would be much easier to find the problem.
If you're on 150/10, then you should be seeing something like 190/11 with speedboost kicking in on the downstream side. Thats a max observed rate during a speedtest using http://speedcheck.rogers.com/en.html or the www.speedtest.net Telus Toronto server.
Hi, does anyone know if Rogers is having problems in Woodbridge (specifically the Hwy 400 and Teston Rd area)? I'm on the 100/10 package using a CGN3ACSMR (with latest firmware) in bridge mode with an Asus RT-AC68U router. Speeds have been really good for the most part (usally always 160 down and 11 up), but today they're all over the place. Over WiFi, they range from 6 to 20 down today. Over wired, they range from 10 to 50 down today. Upload is always consistent at 11. If anyone's interested in my current signal levels, here they are below (they seem to be what they've always been):
|Port ID||Frequency (MHz)||Modulation||Signal strength (dBmV)||Channel ID||Signal noise ratio (dB)|
|Port ID||Frequency (MHz)||Modulation||Signal strength (dBmV)||Channel ID||BandWidth|
|1||30596000||ATDMA - 64QAM||44.750||2||6400000|
|2||23700000||ATDMA - 64QAM||44.750||3||6400000|
|3||38596000||ATDMA - 64QAM||46.250||1||3200000|
They're having ongoing issues in my area (downtown Toronto), periodic breaks in service and then very slow page loading in-between.
I think Rogers has a network issue with something new they're trying to implement....reading between the lines on what I'm told on the phone. Their official exzcuse is "noise on the line", which could be almost anything.
In my case I keep calling and keep, getting the robot telling mme whatever it was has been fixed and then we start all overr again. I don't have time to go into it thoroughly. I was simply telling people that they weren't alone.
