Can anyone confirm that the T2200H is capable of static routes? I have a tech coming next week to replace my modem and although I've spoken with 4 technical support reps, none of them can 100% confirm that the T2200H is not firmware restricted to prevent me from setting static routes.
Last I heard the Actiontecs are still fairly locked down and I wouldn't be surprised if it was not possible. The support reps won't support any advanced features and have no idea what peering or static routes are.
Yes, bridging port 1 on the 2200 is definitely there. Just have to log in to the modem and enable it. Yes, the ALU won't do 100mbps, especially if they need to use 2 phone lines to give you 100mbps. I have that exact same setup though for 25mbps. ALU gone, 2200 replaced it.
So, T2200H was installed today. Tried using it for everything for a bit (wireless, optik, wired). I gotta say, as a router, this thing SUCKS! It has been so neutered by the TELUS firmware, not to mention it is severely lacking in any sort of new wireless technology (5.8Ghz, 3x3 MIMO, AC) that it is almost completely worthless as a gateway. Its a good thing TELUS enabled Port 1 Bridging, or I would be having serious problems.
For example, I live in a 1800 sq ft house. My T2200H is in the basement, right beside my Netgear R7000. I had my R7000 off and the T2200H in full router mode. Upstairs in my sons room, I was getting 1.2Mbps down and 0.85Mbps up using his iPad Air. This is on TELUS 50/10 (TELUS hasn't upgraded the service to Internet 100 yet). I put the router in Port 1 Bridging, turned off the useless wifi on the T2200H, and turned on my R7000, tested from the same location with the same device, and got full 50Mbps down and 10 Mbps up (actual figures were 55.02 Mbps down and 11.13 Mbps up). Before you ask, yes, that was connected to my R7000 2.4Ghz network.
This isn't an advertisement, as I am trying to direct you to this setup because if you want a full featured routing setup its well worth looking at:
Trust me just bridge port 1 and don't look back.
