How to Bypass Home Hub 2000

Hi All,
I am new to this forum so excuse me if this has been answer before. If so, please direct me to the link.
Otherwise I am trying bypass the BELL hub 2000 and go directly from the modem to network switch and then my tv, computer wired. If that makes sense. In a nut shell I have flashed DD WRT router that i wish to use for VPN purposes. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks all.

Not sure I am fully understanding, but here is what I did as I think this is what you want.

I have the HH2000 and my own Netgear R7000 router.

The R7000 is connected to the HH2000 by network cable. In the HH2000 settings, I put the R7000 in the DMZ and set the IP manually (reserved). In the R7000 Internet IP settings, I set the R7000 get the IP address dynamically. This ensures the R7000 gets the IP address from the HH2000, and it will also set the default gateway to the HH2000 (or it should at least); if this doesn't happen you can set those values manually.

I also turned off the wifi on the HH2000 and only use the wifi on the R7000, since this would force all my devices to connect to the internet via my router (R7000) and not the HH2000, this would ensure your VPN connection is used at all times.

There is no impact (at least none that I have seen) on the Fibe TV service, since all that still runs through the HH2000, including the VAP if you have one (for connecting the wireless receivers to the PVR/Fibe TV service).

I have a TurboBeacon and use it instead of a VPN router. Plugs directly into my HH 3000 and provides a second wifi network called TurboBeacon to connect to that is as good as a VPN for all your streaming needs. It's a monthly subscription.

Also if you wish to have a wired connection get a Netgear Trek N 300 and connect to the Turbo Beacon Wifi and then hardwire it to your desired devices. Works great for me and better quality streaming ! The TB provides US access only however.

From reading this, it sounds like there is no real way to completely remove the HH2000 or HH3000 from the Bell Fibe system. I use Tomato firmware on my router and I connect to Fibe with my Tomato router but if I remove the HH3000 and assign both VLAN 35 and VLAN 36 to the WAN, I get my internet but Fibe TV will not work. For that reason I need to keep my HH3000 plugged in which sucks.
