XB6 a mistake for me

Not applicable

i am very disappointed  and   frustrated with this  modem and  I am  regretting  sending  back my hiltron. I  will  be  downgrading  back to 150. i  cannot even get   my ring  doorbell  to  connect, other wifi  devises   keep  dropping  off  and  will not  connect  with   the  same  reserved  ip, and there  is   no   passthrough

There is no pass-through but you can put it into bridge mode yourself if you are using your own router.  This is a first from Shaw.

Hey rassilon,

Thank you for reaching out! I am very sorry to hear of the poor WiFi experience you've had with the XB6. It is a possibility that it is an issue with the combined WiFi network. You can certainly split the networks by naming them different from each other with the steps here to see if it helps reconnect your smart home devices. Yes, there is no IP passthrough capabilities but you can certainly bridge the modem for a 3rd party router to work with it.

Cheers,

Do tell?  Which one?  I would love to see the TC4400...  But I haven't been paying close attention..  Which model?  How/where can I get it?
