- We just switched to the panoramic with the combined router and modem. We discovered later that the Cox removed the Guest Wifi option from their routers (super frustrating!!). Guest networking is basic functionality of a wireless router so I am very disappointed that Cox has gotten rid of this feature. As a work around, I tried setting up a new user as GuestWifi just for accessing the Cox Hot Spots but it won't work because even after removing all access, anyone using the login can still see our bill, pay our bill (ok maybe thats not so bad LOL), see our account number, etc....I'm sharing this part for others so they don't waste time with it. Next, we thought about connecting our old router to the new pano combined router/modem (basically using one modem with two routers). In concept, if I plug one end of the ethernet cable into the LAN port of the primary router, then plug the other end of the cable into the LAN port on the back of the second router, I'm thinking it'll work. But how do I set them up to show as different wifi logins? When I go into the router setup, how do I get into two different routers? Has anyone done this part of it?
- Hello, I just finished installing Gigblast wifi today, and my wireless internet works fine. However, when trying to connect the included ethernet cable to my laptop, my laptop says it connects successfully with internet access, but it is so slow that I can not load any pages. I have tried many possible fixes, such as flushing my DNS cache, re-installing my ethernet driver on my computer, restarting the gateway, and disabling my firewall, but nothing has worked so far. Windows network status says that I am connected to the internet. For a full list of things I've tried (probably not exhaustive either)... Restarting computer Restarting/rebooting gateway Setting TCP/IPv4 properties to automatically obtain IP/DNS server ipconfig /flushdns ipconfig /release ipconfig /renew netsh winsock reset Disable Windows firewall Disable firewall in Cox gateway settings LAN Ethernet link status is active in Cox gateway settings Try different ethernet cables Try both ethernet ports Disabling/re-enabling ethernet network adapter Check/uncheck TCP/IPv6 in ethernet properties Disconnect from wireless network Ran TCP Optimizer Checked hosts file (nothing in there) Get-NetAdapter in PowerShell shows link speed of 1 Gbps Disable/enable "Automatically detect settings" in Windows proxy settings Windows network reset Clear cache in web browser Tried multiple browsers with all extensions disabled Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.
- I heard in these forums to switch it out at a store if it's noisy. I did that and the new one is just as noisy. It would drive me crazy to be working next to it all day. It's way noisier than a computer fan. I've never in my life had a noisy modem or router. These modems are just noisy. Wish cox offered alternatives for rent.
- Cox are decide increase the cost of my awesome slow and expensive connection. I’m from Europe and I normally pay $30 for a 600/600 line with taxes, without any download limit. i understand we are in a diferent country and I need to pay more of the doble for a horrible 150/10 line with a really low download limit. But the limit for me it’s when Cox increase the cost of my line when I have a permanence agreement with them. And I only can quit the limited router they provide me. I read very carefully the router list in his web and I find a Arris TG1682 in a good price. I won’t have a better service but i will save some money. when I arrive to my home and I put my “new” router the system tell me “it’s not compatible” I review one more time the list and I call to customer service. They tell me this router only works when I rent to them. I spend my time and my money in look the routers and buy one. And COX cannot provide service over the routers they are listed as “compatible” the person attend me tell me only the routers of Netgear can works good. I can be sure Cox it’s not the better company. But in my town,unfortunately, we don’t have option. But... really? They publish a list of routers and it’s not valid?
- So, I have been having what seems to be packet loss in COD MW 2019. The connection symbol which consists of 3 orange or yellow boxes constantly pop-up when playing and I lag badly when this happens and it happens every game a good portion of the matches. I have tried port forwarding all of the ports for PC for the game since I play it on PC but, that doesn't help any. I have also tried a VPN but, which in some cases seems to help at some points but, maybe that is just a coincidence. It is extremely annoying and hard to play especially when I am trying to play semi-competitively. Does anyone have any possible solutions / suggestions
- Panoramic modem is in bridge mode, most of time wifi band lights are off, but are currently blinking after requiring a reset after internet dropped. Happens multiple times per day, have a linksys router conncected WRT1900ACS, modem will stop giving internet to router and requires a reset.
- this is pathetic, i've checked the main site to see if theres any outages in my area and nothing shows. I know i am not capable of reaching max speeds of gigablast but at least 25% of whats promised would be nice.
- I am plugged into the Panoramic modem through a cat 6 ethernet cord, and am getting average speeds of 35 mbps download and 1.4 ish mbps upload, and am paying for 100/10. Also, any game that I play, as long as it connects to the internet, I 100% rubber band. This is 100% more rubber banding than I had with my comcast modem in Illinois, even with much slower speeds. I have been trying to live stream some games that aren't necessarily internet heavy, and just on an opening screen without music or any game up, my upload bitrate was 0. Does anyone have any idea of what I should do? I have been contemplating just getting a new modem, but I want to make sure it isn't something I can change without getting a different modem. Game details: Counter Strike: Global Offensive: gets 36 ping to servers in California, not sure if that is good or bad for my location, but in Illinois, that's the ping I got to New York servers with a significantly lower package Trove: I rubber band no matter how many people are on in my house or what applications are running Rocket League: Rubber band every game that I play that is online with an exception like once a day Some hardware details: Network drivers are up to date on my PC Panoramic WiFi Modem Belkin cat 6 high-speed cable (The cable cox sent was a test cat 6 so speeds were slightly slower) The coax leading into the modem goes through only 1 necessary splitter If more info is needed I will be glad to give that info if I can find it
When will Gigablast Panoramic WiFi router support the WiFi Pods Mesh options, similar to the prior non-Gigablast version?When will Gigablast Panoramic WiFi router support the WiFi Pods Mesh options, similar to the prior non-Gigablast version? This will allow extension of the WiFi to more distant parts of the home which may not have consistent connection, correct?
- Hey all, I've noticed that there are multiple hidden networks coming from my Panoramic Wifi, I've never seen this from other routers. 2 in the 5ghz channel, 2 inthe 2.4ghz channel. They are each on the corresponding channel to the unhidden normal network. (2.4ghz for example, main network on channel 11, two hidden networks also on channel 11) They have the same signal strength as the main networks. There is one 802.1X classified hidden network in both 2.4ghz and 5ghz. I am viewing this data by using the "Wifi Explorer" app from the macOS app store. What are these networks for, and can I turn them off? Thankyou!
