NightHawk AX2700/CAX30

Nighthawk ax2700/cax30

firmware 1.4.10.8

 

I'm on Xfinity cable with their More Speed Plan (I think)

Seems that every 2 weeks I need to power off/power on the unit to get back my speeds. As an example my USB 3.0 WiFi adapter will run on Speed Test 490+Mbps or on my Android Samsung S20+ at 640Mbps then both it will slow down to 280Mbps.after 2 weeks. Redo the power reboot and things go back to the higher speed. 

Any ideas is appreciated.

Thanks

Danny

Re: NightHawk AX2700/CAX30

Does a ethernet connected PC experience same issues? 

What channels are you using? Auto? Try Auto and 48 on 5Ghz. Or try setting manual channel 1, 6 or 11 on 2.4Ghz and 40 to 48 channel on 5Ghz.
Any Wifi Neighbors near by? If so, how many?

Is Smart Connect enabled and WMM enabled?

Re: NightHawk AX2700/CAX30

Let me see if I've got the right info.

NO Ethernet connections ALL wireless.

Wireless Setup

        Enaable AX

         2.4Ghz

                   Enable SSID Broadcast

                   Enable 20/40 Mhz Coexistence

                   Channel Auto:  Current 8

                   Security: WPA-2 Personal [AES]

          5.0Ghz

                    Enablr SSID Broadcast

                    Channel 153

                   Current 147+153(P)+157+161

                     Security WPA-2 Personal (AES)

 

Maybe 1 neighbor with a WiFi

SMART is NOT enable and I don't know WMM (sorry)

Seems to me as a novice, it's like resetting the connection. I don't know if Xfinity is throttleing  me. According to their website, I'm not close to data limit, if there is one.

THANKS for the help, I appreciate it.

Re: NightHawk AX2700/CAX30

So try this, Disable WPA security on the modem temporarily. Connect 1 device up to the CAX while the wifi is in the open. See if it will connect and gain internet services. Re-enable WPA2 and AES after testing.

Re: NightHawk AX2700/CAX30

Today mine reset its settings by itself totally out of the blue, When I checked my settings the channel was set to 8, I use 11, the speed was set to 2.4 54mbs I set to 860 ... it's the oddest thing, When I try to change the settings back it keep resetting everything to being off (wifi) I have to change everything again and the changes I make to the settings are taking FOREVER to update... 3-4 minutes at a time. Something weird is defintely going on. Then, like an idiot... I saw "traffic meter" on the app, normally not aviable to me so I hit it ... and now I am completely locked out. The web genies just says "traffic meter goal met) or something and that's it.. that's all i can see and do no matter what, got to the admin, security, internet set up tabs... all just show the same message. So I try the worst app ever made nighthawk and of course :We can't find your router" oh wow what a shock... then I see oh theres an update for the app lets try that .... and Nope same thing... let me guess you have Comcast? They always seem to have a hand in everything... i cant stand them. If they spent half as much time on customer service as they do and creating little rules to micro manage your internet even when using a 3rd party device they'd be the greatest company on earth. 

 

Guess I've got no choice but to nuke everything and start over AGAIN .... seems like a once a month thing these days and my CAX30 has been dialed in and ran great for almost a solid month ... a new record. Never having to reset ... never having to do anything ... oh well it was a nice run and better than Xfintiy's X7 could ever do

Re: NightHawk AX2700/CAX30

I still don't see anything called WMM under the advance wireless setup

I've changed the channels but I get a message on the 5Gmhz that says  To get best wireless performance Netgear recommends set gateway to a high channel between 149-161. I proceded to 48.

It will take a while to see if things change.

Thanks for the help.

Re: NightHawk AX2700/CAX30

He gave me the same advice a month or more ago.... worked like a charm... I set to 11 and 48 and now my only problem is what to do with my EX1800 as the CAX30's now covers my entire house and I'm trying to figure out a place to put it to supplement the coverage
