Well this is a really funky, extremely poorly documented, not very usable, powerful DOCSIS 3.0 modem/wifi router.
Some stuff I've learned after strugging with this thing most of today: (note I did NOT want to put it in bridge mode)
-- The Ethernet ports are 10/100/1000. Nice.
-- The router works on both the 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz bands, but not at the same time, you have to pick one or the other. Aaaargh.
-- The default login is user/user, you should change the PW ASAP.
-- There is an admin login but I don't know what it is.
-- You can get to the operational mode setting to set bridged mode with the URL quoted above, »192.168.0.1/TlModeChange.asp
, if it doesn't work the first time try rebooting the router, logging in, and trying it again. Sometimes this thing depends on the phase of the moon.
-- Once you're in bridged mode, get to the router's Web page at 192.168.100.1.
-- Trying to set up the wireless is really funky. If you don't do things in exactly the right order, it changes "enabled" to "disabled" on the primary network page when you hit "apply". I really don't know how to make this work reliably. When this happens I simply reset the wireless settings, then change things one at a time and apply them, and it seems to work. Also you have to disable WPA before you enable WPA2. This UI is terrible.
-- There is apparently no way to log off.
-- When you forward ports, you have to do it by IP address. Also leave the public IP at 0.0.0.0, this is apparently set up for multiple static IP support. Also you must uncheck WAN Blocking on the Options page or port forwarding doesn't have any effect.
-- I had to set up one box with a Static Lease DHCP address. This seemed to work in an off again-on again way. First, you have to assign an IP address in the DHCP range, which is not how many routers work. Second, when you do assign one, then get that IP address from DHCP, for some reason the DNS servers don't work for 5 or 10 minutes, even though you can ping them. Very weird. Anyway just give it some time, reboot things a few times, and eventually it'll start working.
If I think of anything else I'll post again.
Geez, if a Linksys router is a college freshman art project, then the Apple Airport is a Matisse, and this Ubee thing is a kindergarten fingerpaint exercise. But the hardware seems pretty solid.
