I've searched high and low for a manual for this, and neither I nor Shaw support has been able to find one.
I'm considering upgrading my current modem to this one. I currently use a TP Link router for wifi and DHCP. I am hoping to be able to turn of the TP Link's wifi, but continue to use it for DHCP as I have a number of wired connections which I'd like to keep as they are.
I can find no information on whether or not DHCP can be disabled on the XB6, or if not, is there a menu to access DHCP settings (e.g. fixed IP addresses, etc.)?
Shaw tech support was unable to answer these questions, so hopefully someone here who is using one can help me out.
I can confirm there is no way through the web interface to disable DHCP.
Additional limitations I've found in my first hour of working with it:
The underlying hardware/software may be good, I'm still testing that, but the features exposed through the interface are far worse than the Hitron CGNM-2250 that it replaced.
I had similar issues, and in fact was not able to change many other settings too. Then I switched from Chrome to IE (ick I know!!) which worked. I changed my IP address range and all the other things I could not change.
