Bell FTTH - Fibe TV - Wireless receiver

Just looking for some recent feedback on wireless fibe TV, as I'm thinking of ordering. Any issues with signal as I have heard they typicall install the ONT and the modem/router in the basement. Also how does the setup work? Adapter from the modem, transmits to the wireless receiver, and then some sort of adapter into an HDMI port on the TV?

Is it also possible to use my own router for the wireless signal? I have an ASUS RT AC66U that I hoped to use.

thanks

We've had very few issues with the wireless receiver as far as I know the signal seems to travel better upstairs than downstairs which I explain to customers. Ive installed modems on the top floor and not been able to get signal in the basement but installed modems in the basement and had tv working fine on the second floor. And just to clarify the receiver communicates to the modem wirelessly but it is hard wired to your tv.

As of right now I dont know of any way to use your own router but im sure someone has/will found a way...

ah OK that is very helpful thanks. I didn't get that the TV is actually hard wired to the receiver. So to connect to up to 5 tvs, you would still have to run wires to each TV?

***nevermind I think I answered my own question reading more closely on the Bell website. You would need a wireless receiver for each tv you want to connect wirelessly to the connection hub.

Wait, aren't they supposed to connect to the Motorola wireless transmiter ?

So they don't connect wirelessly to the connection hub ?

No the only thing that is wireless is between the wireless receiver and any wireless STBs you have.

The whole point is to allow customers to access TV services that don't have coax or cat 5 without having to drill holes and fish wires.

They connect wirelessly to the video access point (vap) which is hardwired to the connection hub, quick diagram below haha
