Can you post your new line stats? It would be interesting to see what kind of signal to noise ratio you have over the various channels. Also, signal strength. As for pointing the finger at the laptop, I think that is someone looking for a scapegoat. My desktop is an overclocked core 2 duo that is decade old. This dinosaur has no problems handling the gigabit service. Any speed issues is on the Rogers network end. During prime time, my download speed will drop down to 400-600 mbits. During weekends speed can climb back up to the 700-800 mbit range.
Sure, what's the best application to use to get the line stats and signal strength?

With regards to the comment where it states "Your laptop is the choke point in your speed"... there may be other factors here. Neighborhood congestion...Rogers needs to address this. Another could also be your antivirus software that your laptop maybe running. Run a speed test with your antivirus on and then run another with antivirus off. Some of you may notice a significant increase in your download speeds when your antivirus is turned off. I personally don't think that the creators of these antivirus applications have yet to optimize these programs for gigabit speeds.

Cheers!
You were bang on! I turned off my Kaspersky antivirus and immediately got 800-940 Mbps download speeds wired. Thank you for the advice. Crazy how it could make such a difference. I guess there's no way around this unless I turn off my antivirus?

The issue is if you're doing network scanning then it introduces a lot of overhead, you can have your AV on but don't have it scan every single network packet if you want the absolute fastest speed.

Does that make computer much less secure or it is good balance between internet speed and security? Thanks.

Ultimately it's your call but the best defense against malware is you (as the user) being smart. Even the best AV can't protect you from everything if you're careless.

if you're worried I would just keep it on but most standard home packages do not scan every network packet by default.

Glad to hear this was the case. If only Rogers support would ask this simple question and then ask customers to turn off their av... it would save a lot of frustrated customers calling in.

Looks like your problem is antivirus. Anyway, the line stats are found by going into your modem and looking it up. The ip is 192.168.100.1. You will see a tab with signal to noise ratios, signal strength. You can screen cap the page and upload it.

Did you guys end up switching your modem with the new one?

Rogers have been haggling me to bring my old Hitron modem back and get the new one.

Are the new modem much more stable now?

Same, emails, texts yesterday, and this morning an all new low! - they're inserting those headers on webpages "Action Required". As long as my 3552 keeps ticking they can eat it.

My emails have always been threatening. Who cares. Unless they shut down docsis 3.0 and I am forced to upgrade, then it's not required.
