Weird, this address doesn't work for me.
Can anyone else with CODA in bridge mode please confirm if they can access it using 192.168.100.1?

Darn that's odd.

It should but I'm no expert I must profess.

I used to have a CODA modem when I was with Rogers - it used to put out two SSID's - one for 2.4G and the other for 5GHz.

The CODA I got from FIDO doesnt do that anymore - I just see one SSID and I cant figure out how to force it to put out both SSID's as before.

Ordered on Sept 12 received today Cgn3u modem. Both 2.5 GHz and 5 GHz are on. Is it possible to deactivate 2.5 GHz one? Does it affect anything? Normally using 5 Ghz...

yes, go to the wireless tab on top and go through the items. The bands are distinct from each other

Makes a big difference to keep the modem in the basement and use your wireless router on the main floor connected via the cat 6 cable. Getting 300Mbps on the 5Ghz wireless using my tplink router.

I was hoping to get some feedback from people here on what next steps I should be looking to take to solve this

Since then, I've seen an increase in speeds but it is still not close to the advertised speed and certain rooms upstairs in my house are still having major problems. for reference, the modem model I was sent is the CGN3U and the modem itself is located in the living room on the main floor. I was messaging here to see what possible next steps/solutions I have to fix this problem of mine.

Got the modem and tried setting it up and wasn't working. Followed all instructions and ended up having to talk to fido chat to get some support. Apparently have to activate the coax outlet upstairs to use it, need to wait on a tech. For whatever reason I thought you could run multiple modems in one house lol.
