Just thought I'd follow up on this. Got my fibre install early. Signed up for 100 down 20 up. Also got 3 max digital boxes (no hd). When things were first installed I could only get 75 down and 12 up. Nobody seemed to concerned about that when I called. All they told me was that the speed is still very fast.
Anyway, to cut a long story short I eventually discovered the problem. The actiontec router sucks. After some packet sniffing I learned that sasktel is using vlan id 1000 for both tv and max. Max uses IGMP.
I have a manged gigabit switch. I set created a new vlan 1000 with 3 ports; port 22, 23, 24. Port 24 is tagged and goes to the ONT. Port 23 is also tagged and goes to the actiontec (all my tvs run off of this via coax). Port 22 untagged goes to my linux firewall with dual gigabit cards. My home network is behind the linux firewall.
Now I can max out my connection on servers that support it.
Just thought I'd share my findings. It took me a few days to figure it all out thanks to absolutely no help from sasktel themselves.
