Hitron CGN3AMF Firmware Update

Rogers is doing a trial of new firmware to resolve known latency issues with Hitron modems.  As a Fido customer they will not accept us into the trial.  Does Fido have the ability to push out this update if requested?

 

i am concerned with doing voice over ip with the amount of jitter caused by these modems.

Re: Hitron CGN3AMF Firmware Update

Yes I have spoken with them and they are providing zero value.  The first time I called the support reps denied knowing anything about this issue and suggested I bring my modem back in for a replacement.  Now via chat they are totally acknowledging the issue but have no clue as to when it will be resolved. Fido has no workaround what so ever for customers that enable the router in bridge mode which tells me that they never tested this before going to production.

Hey @pasteusername

 

Sorry to see that the issue with your modem was not resolved yet.

 

Like @FidoPierre mentioned, it's definitely something that we are looking into.

 

We will forward this to our support team. As soon as we have more information on our end, we will definitely let everyone no here on the Community.

 

Meanwhile, if you need any assistance with your Fido account, don't hesitate to let us know and we will send you a PM.

@pasteusername http://communityforums.rogers.com/t5/forums/v3_1/forumtopicpage/board-id/Getting_connected/page/1/th... That is the link of a Fido user requesting a firmware update on the Rogers website. Follow his example to request an update to your modem. There is ZERO support from Fido for any modem firmware related question. Stick to the Rogers support site for updates on the modem. Dave and other community members have been doing a splendid job over there.

Re: Hitron CGN3AMF Firmware Update

For the first time ever I have to give credit to Rogers on this.  Rogers totally came through and pushed a firmware update to my modem today.  Thank you Rogers!!!! So far the bridge modem issue seems resolved after running a few tests.

 

Fido support on the other hand is terrible!!!  1st they denied the problem existed, then they admitted that they have a problem but could do nothing to help me.  I have also been promised a call back from Fido management and have not heard a peep.  Fido in short your customer support sucks! Fido you were nothing but a barrier to problem resolution.  Fido I would suggest you get your act together if you want any customer retention.  If you are going to have 'technical' support they should all understand simple networking terms. I was dumbfounded to here that Fido techincal support had no idea what bridge mode is or what NAT or double NAT is.

 

I have no doubt that this will all fall on deaf ears.  

 

Again thank you Rogers, without your help I would be moving back to TekSavvy.

Re: Hitron CGN3AMF Firmware Update

Thanks for posting this.  I'm thinking of switching from Rogers to Fido and I definetly want to use my own router.  Has Fido pushed out this firmware to fix this issue yet?  Will I have the same problem?

Hey @daz411!

 

No update on this just yet, but you can definitely use your own router with our modem.

 

 

Although our modem does have a built-in Wi-Fi router, if you want to use your own you would just need to activate bridge mode.

 

Hope this helps Smiley
