I am house sitting right now, and the the router/modem thingy is the Cisco DPC3825.
It is dropping constantly. The wired machines lose internet (and network) less often then wireless... but they all drop. It is also unified dropping. If one goes down, they all go down... so it seems like connecting to it wirelessly just causes it to happen faster.
I seem okay if only one machine is currently on and is only wired to the thing. However, if I turn on the other wired on computer (to update windows) then internet starts dropping again.
If I switch my machine to wireless (laptop), then even with just it connected, it starts dropping.
I have also noticed it occur more while on heavier sites, such as YouTube.
Same problem here. Wireless only worst is that I can't go back to my old one because this one has the actual cable input. I tried plugging my old router to this one and the connection just massively dropped from 72Mbps to around half that for both wireless signals.
I am having mad problems on my desktop, laptop and cell phone. This router is junk.
I just checked the connection now and my $100 per month broadband is giving me 1Mbps connection to my cell phone. Thank you Shaw.
That sounds like it'll work for me. Post the instructions, I can do it myself.
Really the selection of router by Shaw is just horrible, looking at cost only. Worse it won't even take dd-wrt.
Yeah, I'd like to try that. However I'd like to try and revert at will in case it doesn't work, I don't want to hold on the phone in case it doesn't work properly.
Otherwise I was thinking of buying the Motorola SB6121, I've seen it for cheap used.
