My new G54 WiFi 7 cable modem router is unable to connect above 1Gbps. Cox has listed in their documentation as G54 802.11AX modem and no setting within their system will allow modem to work above 1Gbps. If box/documentation says compatible with Cox, Charter/Spectrum, or Xfinity, is that only compatible at 1Gbps or 2Gbps?
I’m suddenly having photos on my remote drive showing up as corrupted with distortion and lines running through them. These images are transferred between my MacBook Pro and the Synology Raid via WiFi. The image can look fine on my computer but as soon as it’s transferred to the drive, it is corrupted. Or an image on the drive can look fine but then when I reopen it a few minutes later, it is corrupted. I suspect the G54 is causing this. How can I test for it and fix it?
I recently bought a G54 Docsis 3.1. When I navigate to Parental controls > Managed Sites > Block Sites. I follow the process to add a blocked site, and enable parent controls and *NOTHING* happens. The site doesn’t ‘save’ and doesn’t appear in a list of blocked sites. It does absolutely nothing. This is a basic feature that should work - why doesn’t it?
I’ve been using the Arris G54 and the Netgear RBE973S to test WIFI 7 and just wanted to provide some feedback on how the Arris performs so far. Its not a fair comparison as the Netgear has a few extra features/performance specs. Overall, its performance has been excellent. I have a 3200sq ft home and with it centrally located, it covers the whole home. I’m running around 60+ devices overall (40+ wireless) and I’ve had no issues or bandwidth concerns. I do have all but 1 of my 4k tv’s hardwired in because I prefer that for streaming. I do have the 10g port connected through a 2.5gig tp-link switch and it doesn’t have any issues saturating it. While the Netgear is faster on the peripheral (because of the satellites), the Arris keeps up in closer range and even will beat it on some tests. I’ve been able to saturate my multi-gig speeds over wireless. So if you have a mid-sided home, this should cover it great if you centrally locate it. What I like: I like having the extra features in the
My G54 arrived today and I’ve replaced the rented comcast device. The G54 has a greater reach but still not as far as I need it to be. I’d like to extend the wifi signal and wondering the best way to do this. My tech knowledge is minimal and I don’t understand the difference between extender, bridge and mesh. Which product would you recommend. Also wondering if any of these will match the wifi 7 signal and if not, will they be upgradable via firmware or is there new hardware soon to be released. Thank you.
Is anyone with a G54 having trouble with Apple wifi 6e enabled devices not seeing the 6 ghz network?
Are there any other G54 owners with Apple 6e devices that can’t detect the 6ghz network? My iPhone 15 pro max and my M2 iPad Pro can see and connect to the 2.4 and both 5ghz networks just fine but the 6 remains elusive. I’ve tried Apple’s suggestion to have all of the bands under one name but that doesn’t work, when I use multiple names I don’t get the “limited compatibilty” notice nor does the disable 6e tab appear anywhere in my WiFi settings. I’ve been trying for several days and I’ve had no success, if I can’t get this to work before the return period expires then I’m returning it.
