Re: Sneaky trick to fool rogers techs

said by Viggen93:
Just wondering, what makes everyone here so sure that DOCSIS modem's get better "ping"?

the fact that every user that was switched from a terayon modem to a docsis modem reports better pings... including me.
terayon modems get 24ms pings to the 1st hop @ best... docsis modems get 6ms pings to the 1st hop @ best...
the modems use different technology... the terayon modems use s-cdma and the docsis modems use docsis... i'm guessing the way the technologies work is what makes one ping higher then the other...

Well I used to get 5ms pings to my first hop with Shaw, on the Terayon. But thats long ago. I think the Terayon system is not as good when the segment has a lot of people using bandwidth, where as DOCSIS is more efficient at giving better service in a populated area.

Below is the ping time to my gateway with a 4-5yr old Lancity modem. Why would I want a different modem? I've moved 3 times since I first got cable, and have refused to return this modem for a new one every time.

PING 24.112.140.1 (24.112.140.1) from 24.112.xx.xx : 56(84) bytes of data.

A Terayon TeraPro TCM 200 modem is NOT a DOCSIS modem. It is an S-CDMA modem connecting to a TeraLink CMTS and not a DOCSIS CMTS.

I have one right in front of me (The Rogers guy forgot to take it away when he installed the PipeRider (which IS DOCSIS). Nowhere on it does it admit to being DOCSIS.

Here's the link to the Terayon specs for the TCM 200
»www.terayon.com/admin/file_handl···o_ds.pdf

Now compare that to the Terayon specs of the TJ210 TeraJet modem which IS a DOCSIS modem.

I'm having a problem with my TCM 200.

When the tech guy came to install my Rogers cable, he told me my NIC wasn't installed properly. I don't know what the problem was, because it had worked fine (on a home network and with one of the old LanCity cable modems) up until that point.

So he gave me a USB network adapter. The internet works fine through it, but when directly linked up to my NIC, it doesn't work. The home network still works, though.

Does this modem only worth USB network adapters?

It's weird, because the top light is solid green, so it *should* be connected... it's as if the card doesn't recognize that it's hooked up to a modem, and I just installed the Windows ME driver for it, so why won't it work?

The TCM-200 works with any 10base-t ethernet card or higher. The reason why you can't just switch from the USB NIC to your internal NIC easily is because Rogers only allows one MAC Address per modem, which is unique to any network adapter, be it internal or USB.

What's a MAC address?

I read about it on the Terayon website, and the suggestion was to try rebooting the modem, then letting it come online, then rebooting the computer connected to try to get a new MAC address.

This didn't work.

I'm completely confused. Has anyone else run into the problem, and has anyone else successfully linked this type of modem to a Linksys Cable/DSL router, without paying for extra IP addresses? My old LanCity modem worked great... maybe I'll just put that back on :P

Read this, it has all the necessary steps.

I've used Linksys 4 & 8 port routers with my Rogers connection without any problems after cloning the MAC address into the router's config...
