Re: Just got a new firmware on my SBG6580! I'd have to say this firmware is defective too. Let me explain:
My wifi connections used to work perfect with the occasional crash of the wifi stack on the modem. and over the weekend they became slow as sh*t where as my desktop wasn't. It literally takes minutes to make a connection in some cases, at the tcp level. The connect system call is where all the time is... once it's got a connection things flow decently, usually. LAN over wifi (my SB is the house's wifi AP) runs just the same as it used to - fast and no latency. A direct connection over cable also works fine (same laptop)... I can show the stark difference by just switching between the two. I'm only 4 feet from the modem. Reboots don't change it... dns lookups also run at decent speed... but "connection" speed is crap. I can barely load a page any faster in links than I can in firefox or chrome. I can browse faster over my remote desktop behind a VPN on the same wifi connection with light compression, wtf?)
I've rebooted the modem alot. Inspected the settings, they all look the same. Verfied the version I'm running is SBG6580-184.108.40.206-GA-00-488-NOSH ... what more can I do besides set bridged mode and get a new WAP? Any RR/TWC engineers etc to comment?
