I have wifi modem on 2nd floor and also wired cat ports in house. I want to connect device on main floor with wired connection. I wires in basement. How can I do this with wifi modem.
It sounds like you have a Smart Panel (might also be called Smart Hub) in your house. You would connect the Shaw modem to it and then it feeds the internet signal to all of those ethernet (CAT) ports.
Good news! You can connect the Shaw wifi modem to this Smart Panel. Look on the back of the modem and there will be up to four ethernet ports on it. Just connect one of them to the Smart Panel and that'll work.
The Shaw wifi modem will not only give the internet signal to anything connected to one of its ethernet ports, it'll also send out that wifi signal. So it works as both wired and wifi.
Any questions or if it doesn't work as planned, please let me know!
Thanks. But I believe, I have to install port switch in my basement that will direct wired internet to all wired ports.
This is how this will be done as per my thoughts. Correct me if I am wrong. I have modem on 2nd floor. Connect ethernet cable from modem to one of the port. Connect that cat wire in 6 port gigabit switch in basement and connect rest of cat wire for internet in switch. So this will provide internet connection in installed ports in other places of house. I was with Telus since last 10 years and just switch to shaw after moving to new house and so have this question. Let me know if this is wrong.
Do you have the port switch in place still? As long as the Shaw wifi modem is connected to it, it should work the same as the Telus modem did.
We might need to add a second IP address to the modem to get it to work properly with the port switch. I'll send you a private message and make sure that we have that on for you.
I tried responding to your message on email. But my mail doesn't get delivered to you as it was no-reply email from you. Can you please send me email ID where I can respond you?
That email is just a notification that you have a message in your community inbox. The one to reply to is in your inbox.
Hey, This is Saim Locus. I had bought a Hitron modern but there is some issue just like as the Slow internet speed in the certain room so If you have any fixes for this problem so, please resolve. Another query is No device can't connect.

Just want to make sure I understand. Are you having trouble with a direct wired connection or is this happening over WiFi?
