24 hours of this is all I can take. Installed yesterday. Performance only exists at the wired desktop. Every wi-fi client is unreliable. If a wi-fi client connects, it soon drops. The 'recommended' security setting is the least compliant to a range of clients. Zero connections on the recommended setting. The SSID does not even appear on clients on that setting Moving from the 'recommended' setting up one notch allows the SSID to appear, and for clients to connect, but, only for a a few minutes. Even worse, my previous service is still connected, so, it's easy to see the other unfortunate, deal break impact - one room NEVER connects with Blast, while that same room ALWAYS connects with my existing service. I have a phone app that measures upload/download speed. Just outside of that room, I get 10-12 download/6-10 upload. Step inside that room, that falls to 0.7/0.4. The 'weak' signal does not stay connected well enough to the devices in that room to even run a speed test. Under the current service, I get normal loads at a speed that is consistent from room to room. I have tried some of the remedies I've seen here. I've changed channels. I've changed the security setting. I've moved the equipment from a low place to a higher place to an even higher place. I've restarted the equipment. I've restarted the clients. This is no good if it can't cover every room. This is no good if wi-fi clients drop. This is no good if the first 'remedy' is to restart the modem, restart the client, disconnect the modem, etc. over and over again. This isn't necessary with the current service. The promised 'up to' speeds are only available when I connect to the Comcast server. I never get close to that 'up to' speed anywhere else. That's not really a make or break issue, but, the dead room, the dropping clients, ARE make or break issues.
