Re: New Rogers HITRON CGN2-ROG -Cant Stay Online

said by elitefx:

Cisco; rock solid past performance and American made. Hitron: unheard of till last month with no proven track record. Hmmmm...tough call.

I can no longer recommend CISCO wireless routers or most anything made by CISCO. The only exception to this is the DPC3825 -- as a DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem operating in BRIDGE mode --- for now but that may change if more shenanigans surface.

You have that pretty much backwards. As a wireless router, the DPC3825 is a piece of crap. The e3000/e4200v1, on the other hand, are quite decent routers, when paired with 3rd party firmware.

I agree that the as a wireless router, the DPC3825 is a piece of crap --- and I should have qualified my statement [now done as an edit]. And Yes the e3000/e4200v1, on the other hand, are quite decent routers BUT due to the broken trust issue I will not recommend or suggest that anyone acquire their products --- the only exception being the DPC3825 operating in bridge mode strictly as a DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem.

To which issue are you referring? The whole cloud and illegal use TOS thing? Yeah, that was annoying but they fixed that pretty quickly and with 3rd party firmware it's not an issue.
