Re: Ubee DDW3611 Bridge Mode??

Don't forget to uncheck the fragmented packets one too. I still would suggest using your own router though depending on how new it is and when its model first came out you might see better speeds.

You shouldn't really post that publicly because I dont think they want the public to know that and besides you don't need the master login to change anything. Just need the links to the hidden pages and its already in this thread.

According to the tag under your anon name you are on Bright house so you are in the wrong forum. Bright house blocks access to the modem configuration so you either need to call in for any changes or create a thread in the direct support forum for BHN.

Hey everybody! I read through most of this thread and I didn't see my issue covered.

I had my DDW3611 installed yesterday and I proceeded to change it to bridge mode. Unfortunately, my upload speed went from 5 Mb/s to between 1 and 1.5 Mb/s.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

You sure its not your router?

Well, I get 5 Mb/s through my router when the DDW3611 is in NAT mode. I have my router connected to the DDW3611 and my computers connected to my router. My router is a Linksys E4200.

I have used the Ubee with this exact router and I didn't have any problems running it in bridge mode.

Have you tried rebooting the modem and the E4200 router?

If so, have you tried doing factory reset on the E4200 router?

I have tried rebooting everything.

I have not tried a factory reset on the router. I guess I could try this, but I was hoping to avoid it. I also don't understand why this would help. It immediately goes back to 5 Mb/s when I switch back to NAT mode.

Did you make sure to turn off the various firewall settings in the ubee device before you put it into bridge mode?

Those firewall settings become unavailable in bridge mode because bridge mode turns it in to a modem only.

Yeah, I turned off all of the firewall settings before I changed it to bridge mode. It's just very strange.

OK, I found the issue.

Apparently there is an issue with the Linksys E4200 QoS. If I set it to auto I get 1.5 Mb/s. If I set it to manual at 5000 kbps I get 3 - 3.5 Mb/s. If I disable QoS I get 5+ Mb/s.

I have it disabled for now. But I'm concerned that it will cause quality issues with my VOIP.

It shouldn't unless you are doing heavy bandwidth usage and trying to voip, keep it disabled and time will tell.

No new firmwares for the e4200?

I have a v1 of the E4200 and I'm running the latest firmware.

I read somewhere that the v2 doesn't have the issue.

I know that the setting become unavailable when in bridge mode. That is why I specifically said to make sure to uncheck the various settings before switching into bridge mode.

Ideally, the Ubee router shouldn't enforce those settings when in bridge mode but you never know.... But luckily cruisencode found the source of his issues having to deal with QoS.

Once again proving that when users complain about network issues, 97% of the time it's their own network that's at fault, not the ISP Yet, people always want to blame the ISP first.

I find it entertaining when I am here reading about it. Gives me more stuff to read

But still I know what ya mean. I usually have QOS disabled on my router but my netgear lets me setup mac priority so I do it that way but not giving myself too high of a priority or the others will be too slow.

In all fairness, I never "blamed" the ISP. I was simply here to find a solution and I did.

Yeah, I agree you never did blame the ISP. I do agree that it happens a lot that people blame the ISP when they need to point the finger at themselves. However, in this situation i think someone got a little too trigger happy.

Perhaps "blame" was a stronger word than I meant. What I am saying is that when troubleshooting a networking issue, your priority should be to look at your home network first. Because that's probably where the problem is. I see lots of posts saying things like "(something on the ISP side) has a problem" and you have to go through the process of saying "why do you think so, what have you tried, etc." and most of the time you find out they really didn't do what the doctors call a differential diagnosis, they just leaped to a conclusion, which turns out to be wrong, because the problem is really on their side.

The best way to figure out if your ISP is really causing a problem vs. your network is to eliminate your network completely and see if you can reproduce the problem. e.g, plug your computer directly into the cable modem or whatever. Then when you see, hey, that works OK, it gives you a starting point to track down your home network problem.

OK here you go: People if you think your Ubee DDW3611 is screwing you in some way, look at your own network first, because that's probably where the problem is.

I've got a DDW3611, 30/5, fragmented IP disable, IP flood disable, Firewall disable.

I've got 3 AP's (ch 1,6,11). I don't use the wireless on the ubee since its in a room that isolates the signal.

My wired speed tests are rock solid 30/5. My wireless test are 20-30 down and 5 up when they work. Periodically they lose connection, especially in the middle of a speed test, and require a new connection to start working again. They other thing that's odd is that the wired connections take a while to establish when the PC's have been off or asleep.

Two of the AP's are trendnet and the third is a brand new D-link DIR-645 configured as a an AP. The connection losses are the same on all three AP's.

The UBee isn't bridged yet but I'm seriously considering it because I just dont know what else to try. I'm assuming, since the wired units get a consistent 30/5 in the speed tests that its probably not the connection.

Any thoughts?

My thought is you need to run tests that isolate the problem to a particular segment or component of your network.

You don't really give much real information.

When you say "periodically they lose connection" who is "they"? where is the connection being lost?

Also when you say "take a while" what is a while? And what part of the connection process is taking that time? Link established? IP address from DHCP?

and the obvious.. have you tried recycling your Ubee and routers/APs, have you tried testing/replacing cables, etc.

When I say "they" I mean all of my wireless devices periodically lose their connection. The wired devices don't lose connection but they take about 3-5 seconds before they get initial internet access. That didn't happen prior to the ubee.

I'm not sure what is taking the time to connect. I'm not even sure if I have the tools to make that determination.

Yes, everything has been recycled and that doesn't help.

As far as cables go, what cables? If all of my wired devices get steady speed test once they get connected then that kind of rules out cables doesn't it? I guess it also rules out the TW piece? It wouldn't be an access point cable unless all three APs had bad cables. They are all on separate runs.

So to sum it up, the wired devices take a few seconds to initially connect to the internet but then produce reliable speed tests. The wireless devices periodically lose their connections. Sometimes its constant and other times its sporadic.

I hate to admit it but my overall access (wired/wireless) seemed more reliable and responsive before I upgraded to the 30/5. It just didn't have the raw speed. It also seems like a more to have to rule out when things don't go well.

disable the wifi in the ubee and your problem just might go away or even bridge it

The Ubee wifi has been turned off all along. Guesd bridging is next.
