1. Connect PC directly to new modem (Technicolor TC4350). It's
2. Connect an old TP-Link router (TL-WDR4300) to the modem. It's
3. Connect the current Asus router (RT-N66U) to the modem. It's
flaky. I was about to throw in the towel and switch back to
Teksavvy. Then, I remembered that the old TP-Link router had been
reset to factory default after being retired. So, I did factory
reset on the Asus router. The connection is stable.
What happened? I don't know. I hope it helps others thinking about
switching to Carrytel.ca.
