IPTV Networking issues
Hey Everyone I am looking for help with this stupid IPTV.
Device 1 (back of house)
Gateway: Bell Sagemcom Router/Modem. WAN PPPOE configured. LAN DHCP 192.168.10.1
Port 2 >>> Linksys 610n WAN port
Device 2 (back of house)
Linksys 610n DDWRT. 192.168.10.2 (from DHCP of Sagecom)
-Hands out DHCP to wired and wireless interfaces 192.168.1.0/24
-Port 3 >>> D-Link WBR-2310 at front of house into a LAN port
Device 3 (front of house)
D-Link WBR-2310 - Does not hand out DHCP (essentially a switch)
-Also provides wireless at front of house
-Bell Fibe IPTV is plugged into one of the switch ports.
1. Bell Fibe IPTV and Wi-Fi are unable to co-exist. If Fibe is on, you are unable to authenticate to Wi-Fi (WPA2). If Fibe box is off, Wi-Fi is fine!
2. On demand menu and some menus do not work when plugged via my home network. I can plug directly into the Bell router, On demand works, I make a request to watch something. Once the show starts I am able to unplug Fibe from Bell device and plug into my home network and CONTINUE to watch the program but once again can not bring up the on demand menu. Guide always is working.
1. I have tried to turn the wifi interface on DDWRT into unbridged mode and disabled multicast forwarding. Now both wifi and tv aren't working. TV will change channels and work for about 10 seconds before not working again. Change channel same thing happens.
-Tried plugging the Bell TV Receiver directly into Linksys to eliminate extra D-link router. Same thing issues occur.
2. Have not tried anything here. I am not sure how the receiver works or what special protocols it uses. I have contact Bell to get a level 2 tech to explain to me how it works so I can fix it. I'm holding my breath, they're supposed to call tonight.
Please guys does anyone see something inherently wrong with my system? I need to understand why it's not working so I can fix it. It was functioning normally until I switched to Bell TV and Internet FYI.
I guess I could go Bell Modem/Router w/ WiFi (Back of house)>>> Switch at front of house >>> Linksys 610n (only to provide Wi-Fi at front of house) but that is a last minute attempt to resolve and hey, that might not even work.
