Some of the features on the STB require Internet access (VLAN 35) to work properly.

My crazy network map is still working, with the R3000->R7000 with DHCP turned on, as well as using several powerline extenders and a 6200 wifi extender.

What I'm excited about now is the new Apple TV 4 with the Fibe App. It currently only works for Ontario and Quebec customers, but if it goes live in the Maritimes, I anticipate replacing one of my STB's at least, permanently.

Is that why Netflix (channel 556) will not work from either of my STBs? (that the STB also needs VLAN 35?)
Can I just edit that vlan settings for the TV interfaces, and check both 34 and 35?
(Will it even allow that)

My experience is the R7000 won't allow that - and I suspect you may be right about Netflix.

Although running DHCP on both devices isn't typically advisable, and I'm sure that my setup isn't the most efficient - it does work.

Having said that, I don't use Netflix, so can't comment on how well it would work in my current setup.

Yeah I can't get netflix to work on my 4K STB, and it only works intermittently on the HD box upstairs (after a fresh reboot of the box).
Both TV receivers are plugged into ports 3, and 4 respectively on the R7000. Both ports are configured to VLAN 34, pri 4.
Port 1 I have to 35, 0 (internet).

Netflix app launches, a wheel spins, then nothing. Never works on the 4K receiver no matter what

My STB is a VIP5662W, Wireless 4k Receiver. I think the lan port is disabled, it cannot fetch a local IP address, It keeps wanting to connect wireless.

anyone else have this type of problem?

If it was originally configured as WiFi, it will not revert to wired until it is factory reset.

What's the secret to resetting the STB?

I tried holding down the DR button but nothing avails.

Aliant Tech support states it's impossible to use the network cable.

Tech upgraded my modem now only getting 1/2 after reconnecting netgear R7000

With my original fiber install I had the R1000 and I was able to easily change over to use my Netgear R7000. I recently been having intermittent connection with all my services that problem was fixed and the tech came in to check and see if my services were back, and seeing that I had the old R1000 (had to reinstall it for the service call) they installed a R3000 (not the HH version) unit. And I was getting my 1gb/s speed. So then I hooked up my Netgear R7000 and followed the same steps as before (cloning the mac and setting up the VLAN) but now ever since I took out the R3000 I am only getting 1/2 of my 1gb/s connection. Would anyone happen to know what is going on?

My 4K VIP5662W was originally provisioned via LAN (not wireless) and continues to operate as such behind pfSense. It is most certainly possible to run it without wireless.

This is a little off topic since I'm using an ASUS RT-AC88U.. but do you still need to clone the R1000H's MAC (I was reading that wasn't necessary any more)? I just set it all up and it seemed very easy internet took within minutes. I was able to put VID35 on Wan and VID 34 PRIO 4 on both LAN 3-4.. my VIP2502 in the bedroom worked perfectly straight away (LAN4). My VIP5662W in the living is another story (on LAN3). I keep attempting to reboot/power cycle the router and 5662w in different combinations and I still get stuck at connecting in 2 minutes screen and then failed to connect. The light just stays red. Any ideas?

IGMP proxy is enabled and so is IGMP Snooping. I've tried combinations of Microsoft and RFC3442 for DHCP routes. I feel like I may have knocked out my 5662w somehow for connectivity. I guess I should try the R1000H again to see if works with it.

EDIT: Put everything back the way it was and it worked straight away. Strange that I can't get the VIP5662W via Lan3 to show up. :S I'll just live with it, as it would have been nice to take the ancient R1000H out of the equation.

EDIT2: Had a thought. My VIP5662W clearly isn't getting an IP from the DCHP of VID34 PRIO4. Is it possible that the 4k PVR is static in the 192.168.2.x range from the Actiontek? Or should it have been thrown a new IP the same as the VIP2502 received successfully. Bah seems to be more trouble than it's worth.
