Re: bell sagemcom urgent

said by karimh:

hello guys, its the first time i post here and im in desperate need for help...
so basically i had the bell internet using a sagemcom fast 2864 modem/wireless router, however i changed the provider cuz bell is way more expensive so now im with electronic box and
im using a wired modem and i would like to use the sagemcom fast 2864 as a WIRELESS ROUTER ONLY instead of buying a new router..
if this is possible please tell me how to do it step by step
thanks

Either way, Bell will ask you to return the modem or charge you for it... I would rather get a better wireless router then the Sagemcom...

They charged me for the sagemcom when they installed the internet for me a while ago... But its also a good idea to re-sell it

I've never heard of Bell charging for a Sagemcom during installation.

They charged you a one time LOCATION fee... you better read your bill or charged you activation fee.

Actually, I think its a one time RENTAL fee.

Yes, in English, the word "location" means something completely different.

They charged 99$ rental fee for the modem but we get amount credited back.
But we do not own the modem.

Bell has a one time rental fee that they credit back. Not sure why they do it that way.

Because they can't give them away, but don't want to charge for them. They could rent them for $1.00/month and then give you a $1.00/month credit, or lower the cost of the connection by $1.00/month. But it is far easier on the books to have a single offsetting entry for each account.
