Going on 2 days with no reboots. 33T3 seems to be holding up!

too many variables in a house, best to use your own/upgrade existing router
Thanks, yes, I ultimately was able to improve my wifi performance by getting off the 3rd party firmwares on my Linksys WRT1900AC. The stock one provides the best speeds over AC. Was consistently getting 450-500mbps over wifi and my connection is 500mbit.

Running on 33T3 here as well.

Just picked this up today with the recent Gigabit promo and the Coda modem is giving me wifi speed issues...

I've tried to turn it bridge mode connected to my r7000 (updated to the latest firmware, also factory reset as well) and i've tried the regular Wifi gateway from the CODA-4582 itself.

I can get 700-900 mbps speeds on my desktop or ethernet connection on either the R7000 or the modem gateway directly. However all my wifi AC connections cannot break 100mbps.... I had a cgn3 on 100u before this and I could even burst up to 150-200mbps consistently while using the CGN3 in bridge mode in conjunction with my r7000.

Anyone have a similar issue? Would the beta firmware do anything to address this?

Canada, Eh!!
Had to update modem since returning cable tv boxes [on internet only now] and so far working fine but then again using in bridge mode.

As a reference, had cgn before and older laptop on ethernet could reach low 300s, now close to 400.

Gaming desktop got that much or higher on 5 Ghz so will test that soon.

Presume fw updates on newest hitron even if in bridge mode?

Same issue. Won't break 250mbps over wifi no matter what settings. Rogers tech no help. They kept insisting anything over 250 over wifi isn't possible. So I closed the chat... immediately...

On another note with our newly 1gbps speeds, trying to figure out how to turn that into DL speeds. Sequential write speeds of drives won't write above 25-35MBps on average so... what can I do to see DL speeds hit our 125MBps as advertised.

My hard drives write at just over 100MB/s on large files, so if you're getting 25-35MBps, there's something wrong with your setup/hdds.
The issue isn't the download speed per-say, but the upload speed of the server you are downloading from. There are very very few servers, if any, which will transfer data to you at those speeds. The highest speed I've hit over http transfer is ~35MBps. So if you want to maximize your usage, you'll need multiple downloads from different high-speed servers.

WD Blue on my desktop, and a mix of WD Red, HGST Deskstar NAS, Seagate NAS, Seagate Desktop, and Seagate Ironwolf on my NAS (Snapraid/MergerFS).

Good to know. I only tried with some not-so-hot items. I'll try again with something more popular after. I'm also using various hdds as wd blue, green, red, seagate desktop, etc.
