Re: Ubee DDW3611 Bridge Mode??

said by cruisencode:

said by nephipower:

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.

Lets keep things on topic here shall we? The conversation some of you are having is starting to become a bit OT.

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.
