My 25Mbps is great everywhere in the house, except the kitchen. I have relocated the router for some improvements, but I'm thinking of now replacing the antenna.
Solved! Go to Solution.
heres a good solution I posted elsewhere on this site. Bridge the useless telus router and make it behave as only a moden. Then you can use any router you want. I use an Apple Airport Extreme, dual band, fast and the range is at least double the telus box's.
Explains it. Some routers wont have a multicast setting that will work for the optik tv box. My apple airport extreme is one, its has a multi cast setting but only for low medium and high rates. thats not enough. So i have the optik box plugged into their modem, and my router in to it as well. Each box gets an external ip from telus and all is well. I use my equipment for my network and use theirs for net access and for the tv.
also not mentioned in the link, i found a setting in the telus vt box to turn of dhcp. DO THAT!
i agree with ^
Set the modem/router to bridge mode. and buy /use a better router ex: a new air port extreme or any new router that utalizes wireless AC, dont cheap out on buying a router. poor signal is painful..
I don't think the Telus supplied V1000H qualifies as a multi band. I thought about the range extender, but it would compromize the Mbps and I just need 10 extra feet of good coverage.
