The Bell Home Wireless Internet service is for rural areas and operates on the mobility network, I believe at this point 4g. The speeds I get are around 25m down and 1m up, I know that for people on fibe etc these speeds seem slow, but for any rural internet available in my are they are very good. The hardware consists of an antennae box located on the outside of the house pointed at the cell tower and a HH2000 on the inside. I am not sure of the connection, but I do not have a PPoE, HH2000 internet connection is set to WAN ethernet.
My issue was with the HH2000 not being able to handle my routing needs, as far as I can tell it would get overloaded and drop internet connection every couple minutes. A ping -t test showed that the connection was unreachable for 10 - 20 sec. every 2 - 5 minutes. This caused problems especially with my live streaming of radio among other things. Bell Tech support was of little or no help. I did finally find a solution after much hair pulling and a visit from bell technician who said it was working fine and hours on phone. I found a solution on the forums that worked for me so I thought I would pass it along.
I am using a TP-Link AC2800 Mu- NINO Archer A10 router
I wanted the TP-Link to be responsible for routing and DHCP
The settings I used:
internet setting on router: (tp-link way of saying WAN)
static ip 192.168.2.2 (HH2000 fixed ip is 192.168.2.1)
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
default gateway: 192.168.2.1 (HH2000 ip)
Primary DNS: 192.168.2.1
Secondary DNS: 192.168.2.1
MYU: 1500 (default)
I then set up Lan on different ip whatever you use for home network, I used (10.x.x.x) just to differentiate for myself
Connect Router WAN to LAN on HH2000
I disabled Wifi and DHCP on HH2000
Everything seems to be operating well. No longer having the drop issues I did before.
Bell Tech support will tell you that the system will not work without routing being controlled by HH2000 and that it will not work with your own router etc. As a side not we had 26 devices connected to the LAN, large household and many devices.
I may have double NAT with this setup, has not seemed to effect the speeds in my normal range. The DMZ setting in HH2000 is not available, it seems that it has already DMzed the router, not sure if it is in bridge mode. At this point it is working for my requirements.
originally got down this path from this post
my settings our little different.
Thanks for time and input people have put on all the forums.
I hope this saves someone else some time.
