I just bought a Smart Hub. LOVE IT! Thanks Telus!!
Internet is very important for me because I work from home. Your data plans are really expensive so I have to go easy on the GB's.
I have a cheap but unreliable microwave internet connection up on the roof from a rural internet provider in Saskatchewan. It goes off-line at least 5 times a day so I can't depend on it but when it's working, it's quite reasonable.
I set my hub up to use both the cell tower and my ethernet connection to the other provider. I set it to favor it's ethernet connection. When the other provider goes off-line my smart hub switches over to the cell tower automatically. Cool.
Question 1: Will the Smart Hub automatically switch back to the Ethernet internet provider once service comes back on-line? How often does it check to see if the other guys are back and how long will the switch-back take?
I have a desktop on a LAN backing up large files of family video to the cloud for safe storage.
Question 2: Is there any way to convince the smart hub to allow all my wireless devices to use both connections but block my LAN from accessing the cell towers? I don't want to rack up a huge bill when the desktop could just wait for the ethernet internet to come back on-line.
Thanks in advance for any help.
