Bell called and offered 25/1 LTE internet for $79.95 - $20 for six months / no modem rental / no contract. I pay about the same for 5/.6 dsl. I'm seriously thinking about it. Jasper ON
Indeed one should consider traffic volume when working out the cost. Although I have only exceeded 100 gb once in the last 6 months I would probably opt for the 350 gb package and have lots of headroom. Bell announced that the speed will be bumped up to 50 mbps in the Fall. I will probably sign up then. I want to run my own cat6 cable between the radio and the router but there is no way I am going in the attic until it cools down some.Bell Wireless Home Internet has bandwidth caps though
Yes but what other options are there? I had Storm prior to switching to Bell and still had a 1 Mbps up limit. It was ok until my signal started dropping and they said I'd now need a tower on my property to improve the signal. I'm not even considering Xplornet.50 Mbps and even 25 Mbps down would be great, but 1 Mbps upload speed is really not that useful if working from home. If that's all the new Bell rural wireless service has to offer, it will be a flop for home office users.
root/admin works for me (on the CFW-2352)Does anyone know the login information for the antenna? Not the Home Hub, but the unit with the SIM card in it which is outdoors?
Can you elaborate on that some? Does that work when the ethernet cable goes from the CFW-2352 direct to a PC running a browser?root/admin works for me (on the CFW-2352)
Although there's basically no meaningful settings that you can change on it, the status page which is already open has the most useful information.
For myself all I have to do is go to http://192.168.3.1/ which displays the status page with signal strength and other useful information.Can you elaborate on that some? Does that work when the ethernet cable goes from the CFW-2352 direct to a PC running a browser?
While I agree I'm not going to change it on mine for a few reasons, 2 of which make it a low risk attack vectorThat sounds like a security issue that hackers could exploit. I would change it if possible.
That worked for me. Thank you.For myself all I have to do is go to http://192.168.3.1/ which displays the status page with signal strength and other useful information.
That said however I had my neighbor try it and they weren't able to access it, but they also aren't that technical and I wasn't going to bother them more than I already had. (I was just curious to know what signal strength they were getting)
