Learn how to navigate through some of the advanced settings of your Gateway with a few easy steps using BlueCurve Home. With advanced settings, you can make additional tweaks to your network such as Port Forwarding, customizing your LAN/WAN, and configuring DNS.

Note: While these settings are available to you via BlueCurve Home and Gateway admin tool, Shaw does not support setup or troubleshooting of advanced network configurations. We recommend changing these settings only if you're familiar with them.

  1. Open BlueCurve Home (mobile app or web portal).
  2. Select Network (mobile app) or Connect (web portal).
  3. Select See Network.
  4. Select Advanced Settings under More.
  5. Choose an Advanced Setting you'd like to configure.
