Adding to this - we only have internet, no TV - I was hoping we could do away with the modem altogether and use our own 3rd party router. We have a TP-Link Archer AX20 AX1800 Dual-Band Wi-Fi 6 router.
Is it as simple as plugging it into our ONT with an ethernet cable and doing away with the T3200M? I haven't looked at the ONT box but I assume there is a specific port we'd need to use?
One issue we may have is that this is in our laundry room in the basement, and although our townhouse is small, there are two floors up from there where we need wifi connectivity.
Thanks so much in advance for any help!!
If you have fibre with an ONT, the T3200 is not a modem. It's a router. If you do replace the T3200, you would need to plug your router in to the exact same port on the ONT as only one is usable.
I am not a Telus employee. I am just a Telus customer like the majority of other users on the forums here. I don't have access to any of the tools the actual tech support employees have access to in order to diagnose connection issues. I would recommend contacting Telus directly.
Check the uptime on the status page of the router. Is it rebooting or just reaquiring the WAN IP? Rebooting would reset the uptime counter.
If the router is indeed rebooting frequently then you either have a faulty router or there could be a problem with the power/power supply.
