ROGERS Ignite Modem + ASUS Router (MerlinWRT / Bridge Mode?)
We are switching to the Ignite TV + Internet bundle on Thursday and had a few questions for the experts here on RFD:
1. Do they use a single coaxial cable from the demarc point to the main hub (modem/router)? I assume 1 cable runs into the hub from demarc and another (coax cbl?) from the hub to the main TV with the rest of the boxes being wireless? Trying to prepare for the installation...
2. I am using an R7000 router with MerlinWRT firmware that is currently connected to my bridged Bell home hub modem. Can we put the new rogers hub into bridge/gateway mode or would it mess with the TV services?
3. If #2 is possible, can you briefly explain what config would be required on the MerlinWRT firmware?
My hub would be in the same spot as my R7000 router so I want to disable the WiFi on the rogers hub.
Anything else I should know?
