I had signed up for the 150u deal (at a kiosk) about a week ago to be sure I wouldn't miss out on the promo, but wasn't ready to port out my number immediately, but planned to (to get the add-on $50-$40 cell plan). Am I too late to still be eligible, now that I'm ready to port out since I didn't do it at the time (even though I was told I didn't need to)?

Was told the only offer available for internet standalone is the gift card...
gift card link will be sent to you by email. Then from there you go to a portal where you tell it which gift card you want then weeks after that gets sent to you by email or mailed to you.

I'm currently with Rogers ignite internet and tried to get the Fido plan but I was told that they would need a technician to come install the modem because their internet is different than Rogers Ignite internet. Can anyone confirm if this is true? I'm in a new build so the Rogers Ignite is the first internet installed here.

If you went through the easy connect it'll ask you to set a password on your wifi networks, which updates the password on cusadmin as well

You need to be on the network in order to get access to 192.168.0.1 so no real risk if you set up the wifi correctly

That's unfortunate and odd. Lots of chat transcripts here seem to indicate that most reps very clearly detailed the process. Anyways you should receive an email in a few weeks asking you which gift card you want.

Is there a way to bypass easy connect on a new/factory reset modem and just get straight to the default login page?

Bridge mode. Not using wifi on Fido's device.

its just a connection test then it asks you to update SSID and password probably less hassle just to go through it than to by pass it. Once completed you can switch to bridge mode right away. the login would be cusadmin and wifi password that you just set.

Yes, but I'm wondering if there's a way to bypass easy connect so it doesn't check for a Fido/Rogers connection first, in order to use it as a simple router/WiFi repeater, etc. I haven't seemed to have found a way.

nope. It has to do a connection test first - no way to bypass that. If it doesnt detect an internet connection, then the whole setup is aborted (with a retry button on bottom).

How were you offered the phone deal? I signed up for the 150u deal (actually three of them) about a week ago, but I wasn't ready to port my number at the time, but now I am. Trying to figure out if it's too late, and/or the best way to add it on to the promo...

have laptop connected to internet, plug in same laptop to fido modem, go through the easy setup. It will get you through the easy connect. At least it did for me. No idea why you would use it as a router/repeater without modem function.
