I want to connect a camera, with remote access, to my daughter's Hitron CGNM-2250 modem/router. For this I need port forwarding access to the Hitron, but have read conflicting forum entries whether or not Shaw supports this. I live in Ontario and my daughter lives in BC. The next time I go to visit her I want to complete this but have not worked with the Hitron 2250 before.
In Ontario I have a Shaw modem feeding my router and have a number of cameras and other devices connected to it. I prefer to port forward on the Hitron rather than ip pass-through to a third party router (with all her devices connected to this router) in case of a router failure.  That way, at least, it would stay in Shaw's area of responsibility providing her with the help she would need.
