Moved in march and bought the cox for the first time. zip code 85027. 

I only have cox Modem\Route combo and asked for internet service only. 

Panoramic Wifi Gateway - its cox modem\router combo

Things I've done.

1. Call cox to discuss the problem

call history (

2. Reset the modem (many times)

3. Restart my computer (many times)

4. Disconnected Router and just have the modem running a straight line into my computer from the modem

5. Inspect the cable lines

6. Looked for similar problems online

7. I had 2 tech visit and my internet is still terrible

    Techs should test signal strength and signal noise ratio before it enters your house and then at your modem.  Could be bad before it reaches your modem.  This was my issue and they made adjusts to box by the street, and eventually had to also replace line to house.

      Ok thanks for update and as I mentioned before tech came 2 times and didn’t do anything. 

      now I had signed up for cox complete care, so looks like scam anyway that I have to pay them to fix cables or box on the street.
