I have one of the new ubee modem/wifi modems installed and I've been having some rather bad speed issues with the wifi and the ethernet port connections. At times I can't even watch a 360p video on youtube without it stopping to buffer every 5 seconds. However I pay for a VPN service and the odd thing is, whenever I connect to the VPN my internet speed is faster! I can watch 720p videos on youtube with no issues, but I can't even dream of watching 720p videos on youtube if I am not connected to the VPN. I'm thinking it has something to do with the TWC DNS or proxy. While from what I've read it is not possible to change the dns servers in the Ubee modem but it is possible to make it go into Bridge mode and connect everything to a separate router running tomato or ddwrt where I can configure these settings better.
I am able to access the modem and login just fine at 192.168.01 however all the URL's for the supposed 'secret page' where you can conver it into a bridge mode I keep on getting "No Data received" pages at »192.168.0.1/TlModeChange.asp
Can anybody tell me how to fix that so I can access this configuration page and move it to bridge mode? Also might anybody be able to explain the slow buffering speeds when not using a VPN? Because technically it doesn't make any sense that my internet connection is faster when I tunnel it through another provider.
