Re: VDSL2/ADSL2+ Modem for EVLT-K cards (ALU 7330)

I'm not very familiar with them as a company. But I understand those details affecting our decisions as a consumer. That's a big reason why many of us avoid the incumbants wherever possible.

Competition is good. Hopefully some of the other modem manufacturers will start selling VDSL products.

Update #1: Just set it up and it's working fine on a Telus ADSL2+ line. When I get my speed bump to VDSL I'll confirm that, too.

That's what you get if you have 50/10 and FibeTV.

so they give a higher profile which you can use for internet traffic if you aren't currently receiving some TV channels? now i'm interested in getting the cheapest possible FibeTV package

They rate limit the Internet side to 50Mbit/s, or at least they're supposed to.

does the rate limiting happen on the modem or at the remote? it seems like the modem would handle it and maybe thats why they're forcing certain modems.

i'm guessing you're also stuck with the official Bell modems if you want Fibe TV? looking at the pricing i'm actually not interested at all in paying for another installation and a 2 year commit.

It's force on the user name.

that seems weird. doesn't the fibeTV data go through the modem to or does it throttle certain types of protocol (QoS)? also is it possible to get fibeTV if you have VDSL2 from another company?

FibeTV is either DHCP or with another user name PPPOE.

I believe it's being done through RADIUS, that's why it's limiting only the PPP session. Some accounts might have it setup, some still might not, luck of the draw I guess.

Just got my modems. Something seems a little off, when I do a speed test the graph is pretty jagged and the needle is not smoothly going up with speed, its bouncing a little.

Nice modems though, just got to solve this issue.

Just got my Huawei HG610 this afternoon and was able to get it up and running in bridge mode thanks to your second screen shot. Thanks so much!

I've also just filled out a complaint with CCTS about the forced rental of Sagemcom modems here. Please do the same!

The forced rental of the Sagemcom modem is actually almost pretty much gone when it comes to third-party ISPs. I don't complaining to the CCTS will do much when the CRTC is already looking into the matter right now: »CRTC 2013-80 Optional Upstream Speeds, DSL Modem Cert

TekSavvy just rolled out buy-only and rent-to-own options on the Sagemcom modems. Next up is a cheaper buy-out option ($85 vs $130) on current renters.

BYOM is up in the air though for now but at least (ie. sending a rental back without needing to buy-out).

Great but not good enough. BYOM being up in the air is the problem and there is no solution in sight. It needs some angry people to file complaints.

That would be fine and dandy, if the Sagemcom worked properly, which it doesn't in many different ways especially in the way power users need it to work.

Polkaroo,

I just bought one of the HG610. Can you share how to setup bridge mode for the HG610 and have some screen capture? Do you change the HG610 ip address to different one to avoid the ip with router?

Thanks in advance.

Actually, if you look at the original poster's screen shots, you have everything you need. His second screen shot shows the only page you need to touch. The only trick is that by default you will have two lines of configuration and need to use the tabs on the top right to remove one.

I should note that I'm with TekSavvy in Bell land where the VLAN 35 is required. I believe you can skip that bit if in Telus land.

I just got my Huawei yesterday. It was easy to set up seems to work well. Anyone know where to change the ip address? Also is there a way to get the line attenuation to show up in the stats?

Should be under the LAN settings somewhere. Don't remember exactly, sorry.

As for the attenuation bug, check here.

For anyone interested in line monitoring software, this one's pretty good. It's similar to the old Router Stats and Router Stats Lite but it works with the HG610 and seems to have the tweaking function for the noise margin like DMT. Bicephale would have loved it.
