Just an update from me:
I signed up for the $45 extreme 35/3 120gb + bonus 80gb bandwidth, free modem rental for 45$ through Steve months ago for my new house I moved into this weekend. I prefer to use my own router (Asus RT-n66u) so I can't comment on the built in router/wifi with the modem, but the speed is blazing fast. I'm getting my full 35/3 (using ftp, not speedtest+speedboost).

Online billing shows the correct amount:


Hi-Speed Extreme + 80GB $84.99
Savings: Internet Discount $-39.99
Enhanced Wi-Fi Modem Rental $8.00
Savings: Internet Discount $-8.0

New Hitron modem is C.. p. Rogers knows that very well, call them to switch it to bridge mode and use good dual band router. Problem solved, not much you can do with supplied router...

Switch to bridge mode, easy instructions?
I have mine hooked up to a Linksys and never did anything (just plugged it in) - and everything still works.

Does that mean my performance could be suffering as a result? I haven't noticed anything, but if setting up bridge mode is optimal....

Thanks TripleHelix and xxBrazilizn.. for the suggestion.

I knew and leaning towards getting a router and now will do that after tech's visit tonight, lets see what he has to say and do. The hard thing for me to swallow is that Bell modem is working fine with wifi at the same spot. Roger should get better or comparable working hardware, they are about to replace this Hitron modem next month (store csr told me) with new one, lets see what they get this time.

Thanks.

with all due respect, your logic is flawed...
i don't doubt your claim that the bell modem is working better than the rogers in the same spot. but let's break this sentence down.

HOW do you know it's working better? are you connecting via wifi? let's break THIS down further...

wifi is wifi right? nope. you need to tune your wifi. every characteristic of wifi can affect your wifi experience. from the authentication protocol you choose, to the channel you're on, to whether you're running 20Mhz or 40Mhz...

I'm not defending rogers saying they gave you good equipment, in fact, you may very well be correct that rogers stuff is ***** . but you can't really conclude that without tuning your stuff.

for me, the rogers d3gn modem actually gives me a stronger wifi signal than my WRT610N router. but the lack of tuning capabilities (or that i've found yet) on the rogers modem actually limits me to about 25Mbps download whereas when I'm connected to my WRT router I'm getting 55-75.

isolate the problems one at a time before you start making bold statements. this will help you in life whether in school or at work. plug your computer directly into the modem first and see what sort of speeds you're getting, thus isolating the modem performance and finding out what the max speed you can get is. then introduce one variable at a time to see how that affects your connection speed.

Rogers Tech just left...set me up w/ W45 internet and home phone.

First speed test (at 11am -- is that considered a peak period when cable is supposed to be slow?) shows 33 mbps down and 2.9 mbps up vs. a promised 35/3. Seems decent thus far.

Now...to await the real test...how screwed up is my first bill going to be???

Hi Andr2w282,

I just got on with $45, and I have Asus RT-ac66u Router. When I picked up new rogers modem came with WIFI, do you know how to disable the router part of that modem and just use it as cable modem.

your help is greatly appreciated.

Cheers!

I would think peak usage would be in the evenings...

You can call Rogers and they'll put it in bridge mode.
Uh, yeah, I'd like to speak to a Mr. Tabooger, first name Ollie.

login to your modem 192.168.100.1. g
google your default password for your model
change from router to bridge mode.
