What are the Wi-Fi technologies used at Fizz?

  1. What type of equipment does Fizz use?

    Fizz uses an all-in-one Wi-Fi modem that includes a Wi-Fi router.

    This device ensures an exceptional online experience by optimizing Wi-Fi services throughout your residence and on all your devices.

    It utilizes 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards for Wi-Fi connectivity.

     

    The benefits of using a Fizz Wi-Fi modem include:

    • An all-in-one modem and router
    • Powerful dual band support
    • Secure wireless connectivity
    • An easy configuration interface
    • Works in conjunction with the Fizz Wi-Fi app so you can manage your service.

     

    Technical specifications for the Fizz CODA-4680:

    WiFi 2.4GHz : 802.11n double-bande 3x3
    Wifi 5GHz : 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO 4x4

  1. 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi band steering

    Wi-Fi band steering is a technology used to deploy dual Wi-Fi bands that allow compatible devices to primarily use the more powerful and less-problematic 5GHz band.

    With the band steering function, only one Wi-Fi network name will be displayed. Each compatible device will automatically connect to its optimal frequency (2.4Ghz or 5Ghz) to make the user experience seamless.

     

    Modifying this option is possible thanks to the Fizz Wi-Fi app:

    1. Choose ''My Wi-Fi''
    2. Select your Wi-Fi network
    3. Advanced settings
    4. Band steering

     

    The Fizz Wi-Fi app is available free of charge in the Apple Store and Google Play Store.

     

    You can also adjust band steering using Fizz Wi-Fi modem user interface:

    1) Open a web browser on any device and navigate to: 192.168.0.1

    2) Connect using the following information:

    • Username: cusadmin
    • Password: xxxxxxxx (enter the new password you selected during initial configuration)

     

    3) Navigate to to the following section to make any changes:

    Wireless → General settings → 5.0GHz → Band steering (Activate)

     

    If you do not remember the password you entered during setup, reset your Wi-Fi modem to its factory settings by pressing the reset button on the back of your modem for ten seconds.

  1. Automatic Wi-Fi channel optimization

    Both Wi-Fi frequency bands (2.4GHz and 5GHz) offer a range of channels to optimize the quality of your Wi-Fi connection.

    The Fizz Wi-Fi modem has an optimization feature, allowing it to automatically select the best channel for each connected device, based on the needs at that time.

     

    The automatic Wi-Fi channel optimisation  is enabled by default on all Fizz Wi-Fi modems to ensure state-of-the-art service.
