Just to add, cable modem and RG uses almost the same power. RG uses 14W while you have cable modems rated from 4W to 9W. But if you switch off the RG wireless your power consumption is going to be almost same.
9W you pay $1.73/month
14W you pay $2.69/Month
Sad to read your story which is why I'm so apprehensive about my upcoming cable to fibre conversion. It's been four days since my post here and there has been no SH response on this thread and so far it's only been nice fellow subscribers offering advice.
This entire forum is filled with threads highlighting the issues resulting from the underperforming wireless home gateway which first arose 6 months ago and SH is still pushing this box to customers.
You would think common sense and logic should dictate that they stop offering this box or at least tell the customer at sign up of potential wireless issues and offer to do a direct ONT setup. But sadly we are still discussing this issue here and customers are left to encounter and epxerience problems before they are offered direct ONT.
Just hope SH responds soon.
The problem is that many customers like myself may not even be savvy enough to do so or have knowledge of the wireless issues until they chance upon this thread. And many only do so after they have encountered the problem and google for information. Fewer ones like myself come upon this thread post sign up but pre installation.
Does the airport extreme connect well with direct ONT?
Any configuration settings required on the airport?
Hi there new to this community.. ive read the previous post and it defintely helped me Thanks Guys!!!
Managed to set up the bridging and I am really happy and satisfied with the results. Was able to get connections in my bedrooms without any problems. Wifi speeds also substantially increased. Really thanks all for your help and assistance. As mentioned, I connected my asus router to the RG and set up the bridging using the steps i got from this forum.
To Starhub: Sincerely hope that you do something about this, come another 2 years, your customers may just decide to switch service providers and you will be the one losing out...
To potential customers switching to fibre: Be prepared to get disappointing and slow Wifi speeds. Hence, you have to find alternatives... and all the best!
