LOL you guys are bogging down the entire network.
Take me to litigation. I don't mind upgrading but I just don't want to go through the hassle of being an alpha tester. When you early adopters help Rogers fix the problems, I might consider switch. Of course the hideous white and large form factor is a deal killer too. I barely have the space for the current modem. It is going to be hard to find space.

I got a warning message that I need a new modem. Did anyone swap their modem? Do I need to call Rogers to do this, or can I simply go to a rogers store.
Thank you

Either ignore, or go to store if you want.

Can go to Rogers store... their message should state that.

BUT, we got that message while back ago and then again recently... no rush if internet working fine.

Alpha testing is the way to go... with robbers.

Finally decided it was time to upgrade. Got the new white modem (2 dots). Plugged it in and wham. Everything is good

950D
42U

Wireless strength of the new modem is also much better.

Just wanted to say that the naysayers may be wrong. In either case firmware upgrades are probably around the corner and rogers isnt going to give up on the nagging :(

Is it a limitation of docsis or if they wanted to the upload speeds could be much higher?

Of course it can be much higher... Robbers limitation is 50 UL as defined by the plan. But then they charge you more at a higher UL. Note as well your total speed UL and DL is determined by your Ethernet adapter. The max available for uploads download at same time is the card. So for example at 1 gb and 50 mbs ur max DL is 950 and max UL is 50. But of course if running DL only you can get up to 1 gb and same with upload if robbers had no limitations. If you wanted both 1 gb UL and 1gb DL at same time you wud need a 2 gb card ... and that dependent if robbers had such a plan to offer.

Of course not. I just value upload speed more than download because I don't have enough upload capability.

Doe Rogers allow you to use your own router? Does connection faster with your own router?

You can disable "residential gateway" in the modem settings and connect your router. Your router needs to be able to support the speed that Rogers provide. Hence why they give you the combo modem and router so they already dealt with the shortcomings of not so smart customers.

Rogers prefers customers use their gear to simplify their troubleshooting if they need to get involved. The supplied hardware works and is fast enough. However, the software can be buggy and wireless coverage iffy. Generally people use their own router to ensure a better user experience.
