I can't give away a technician login, as people may go in and mess around with some settings and knock out their whole service.
The password prompt only comes up after making changes to settings. I'd mention the regular password, but even that may cause someone to mess up something. If someone is a network technician with knowledge of what settings do what, then maybe...

The router settings can be accessed through http://192.168.100.254 . The username and password would either be listed on a card that the tech provided when your internet was installed, or else it would be one you selected yourself.
If you are unable to locate the correct password, or cannot log into your Pace gateway, you need to call MTS for assistance.

|jmorgan||Thanks for the suggestions. After a couple of STB restarts, everything is working fine now.|

at jmorgan....did you install the asus merlin firmware on your ac66u..and do step 9
live tv will cut out unless you install the merlin firmware....and do those step...basically multicasting is overloading your router and thats why its cutting out

Again, I have to be somewhat careful, as I have only dealt with SaskTel's version of this gear, however, I have never seen activating the 'DMZ Plus' affect the IPTV boxes.
Do the IPTV boxes work correctly when they are the only devices connected? you may have some other issues going on.

I tried the following config:
- All STB/PVR plugged directly into RG (5168) (STB via coax, PVR via CAT5)
- DHCP enabled on RG (192.168.100.x)
- WiFi disabled on RG
- CAT5 from RG to WAN port of router (RT-AC66U)
- DHCP enabled on router (192.168.101.x)
- All non-MTS devices connected directly to router (CAT5, WiFi)
- DMZ enabled on RG to router
- Router picking up public IP address on WAN interface via RG DHCP (142.161.x.x)
- Some ports forwarded on router to specific devices
From an internet perspective, everything worked great. All non-MTS devices could access the internet. All port forwarding worked as expected. It's nice to be able to manage all this on the router instead of the RG.
From a TV perspective, not so great. Live TV would cut out after 10 seconds. STBs could "see" the recordings on the PVR, but couldn't actually play them.
Has anyone had success with this configuration? I'm not sure if this config has been tried/works.

Agreed that there shouldn't be anything special about using your own router, except that some ISPs basically prohibit it by completely locking you out of their boxes. Avoiding a double NAT normally involves at least a minimal configuration adjustment of the providers router ('DMZ Plus' in this case).
There are a variety of reasons why you might want a third party router, including better firewall control, and better wireless support.
From my reading of this thread, the OP had found a way of connecting the MTS IPTV boxes to a third party router, rather than directly to the 2wire. I was just pointing out that this should be unnecessary.

|Mozza||Again - still not sure what's special about this - I've been using my own router for wireless/ethernet for years? If you can't use your own router for a TV connection, what do you gain from this?|

While I don't live in Mantioba, this is actually a standard feature off all 2wire gateways I have run across. You can also accomplish the same thing by going into the firewall settings, and enabling 'DMZ Plus' on the second router.
This does not disable the device in any way, and you can still have devices directly connected to the 2wire afterwards. The only limitation is that only one device can be in the 'DMZ Plus' at once.
You may be better off to just leave any IPTV boxes directly connected to the 2wire.
I don't have anything in writing on this from a telco, but based on some phone calls, they seem to consider these settings 'end user' settings, as they can be modified with the default password printed on the bottom of the unit.

|techguru99||btw...the admins need to sticky this on the forum...it took me 2 days of searching for little clues about how to do this|
|2014-09-26 09:00 PM|
|techguru99||basically what this does is turn the 2wire/pace gatway into a stupid dsl modem..and everything else goes through the asus router|
|2014-09-26 08:59 PM|
yes it works for tv as well
however you do still need the mts 2wire router to plug the mts phone line in...I suppose you could buy your own dsl modem..and it would work..I haven't try'ed that that tho myself....

|Macman||Never heard anything like this before. Will be interested to see what others have to say about it. I'll have to check for this Router behind router setting. I have access to a special Tech login screen on the 2wire/Pace boxes which reveal more settings, but I've never seen anything like that in 7 years. May I ask where or how you found out about this? I hope this doesn't cause a bunch of people's services to get knocked out causing truck rolls, as I'm sure the company wouldn't be impressed.|
|2014-09-26 10:39 AM|
|Mozza||Wait - this also works with TV? So technically you wouldn't need a box? I don't understand...|
