Re: [Internet] Fibe 50/50 + Fibe TV - How to add my own router i

IPTV requires that DHCP sends out the ip's and Bell DNS #'s to the boxes connected to the TV's. How could you get around this for the home LAN? You need the Sagecom as the gateway and there doesn't seem to be an obvious way of stopping the Sagecom from forwarding the Bell DNS #'s to the devices on your network. I have been trying to do this with a router connected somehow to the Sagecom but it's not obvious how to set this up if the LAN is wired into the Sagecom.

Not in this case.

The topic creator is on Fiber to the HOME. There is a device called a optical network terminal that's placed BEFORE the Sagemcom modem/router. This connected to the Bell network first and handles the handshake. An ethernet cable is run from this to the red WAN port on the Sagemcom.

So in this case, the Sagemcom could be bridged and the IPTV will work fine as the ONT is doing the handshaking.

Thanks for the explanation. I didn't realize that Fibre to the Home had a different connection scheme. Have only ever seen FTTN...

yeah, the tech did a number on this one !

I got my ONT and the battery backup on a piece of plywood on the wall and the sagemcom on computer rack just beside the wall.

The tech should of done a better job on your install.

The worst thing is.. the battery backup is only there for the phone lines.. (CRTC requirement) but the internet will stop working.. even if the sagemcom is also on a UPS.. (at least, did not work on my tests)

So you have to put Bell's battery on another battery(ups) and that setup isen't recommended (I dont know why, but a raid it on a warning label of some UPS)

In the video, the bell equipment is hidden inside a cabinet where is located the power panel. There's not much room near the power panel, where did you expect the equipment installed??? Personally, I wouldn't want the equipment on my wall, it's not really esthetic, ask your wife or girlfriend about that... It's not like the equipment was installed in a unfinished basement...

I'll admit that not everyone wnats it on the wall.. I got mine in my office.. my girlfriend could't care less where it was as long as it work when she need it.. I'm a tech guy so I like it on the wall

But, you have to admit that its a mess in there.. the tech could of mounted it on the door.. there seem to be some space in front of the electrical panel.

my 2¢.

Ok i'm a bit lost here..

So what is the best way of doing it ?

Should I leave my Sagemcom handle pppoe and connect my 3 receivers to it and plug my router using the last port ?

If yes, should I do pppoe again on the router or set dmz on the sagemcom ?

Or should I just reset the sagemcom and plug everything on my router ?

Thx!
