Re: [AB] Just Got TELUS Bundled Optik TV, 25 Turbo. Some questio Also - is there a way I can hookup my Apple Airport Wireless? When I went into Airport Utility, it said to select "bridge mode" instead of NAT only or something. So I changed it to bridge mode, and I just realized that Telus tech had the Apple Airport Router plugged into a LAN port on the Actiontec 1000H Modem/Router. So I tried changing it, and plugging the Ethernet cord into the WAN port of the Actiontec, but still no luck.
Does anyone have their TELUS Actiontec modem/router hooked up to their own router they were using previously? Or specifically any other Mac users out there get their Actiontec to use Apple Airport Extreme as the Router? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks again.
The WAN port on the Actiontec is used if you have Ethernet to the Suite provided by TELUS, it's the alternative to using the RJ11 jack. You want to have your Airport Extreme plugged into the LAN side, if you are using the Airport in bridged mode -- so that it will provide access to the LAN part of your network.
If you want access to your email, just register on telus.com for billing and you can reset your password there!
The more I C, the less I see.
Thank you. WOW, my Internet is blazing fast now. I was uploading at 250KB/Sec through torrentz... and my downstream is wicked fast as well. I got my Actiontec hooked up to my Apple Airport now, and I love it. TELUS Optik TV/Internet blows Shaw out of the water! Way more channels to choose from compared to Shaw, I am so happy to get rid of Shaw. Their prices were just absurd and ridiculously high.
Still waiting on figuring out the email business, other than that, I am one VERY happy customer! VDSL2+ rocks!
Thanks again guys. The tech even said that I would have a rock solid connection because I am so close to the DSLAM.
I might have a few more questions later, like I heard they have a 50Mbps package now, but only available in certain areas. And I am on the Turbo 25Mbps/2.5Mbps and its fast enough for the majority of sites or torrents being able to upload to max my downstream. I did some speedtests on here, and I am close to the top for speeds with telus.net. But the other people on the 50Mbps package beat me, but oh well. Not even sure if the 50Mbps is available in my area of the City.
Thumbs up for TELUS, Thumbs down for Shaw Unstable.
Cheers and Thanks folks!
