We absolutely appreciate the feedback! I did watch the video and also passed it along to the other teams. We're also glad that you covered a few topics in one go! (service-related, customer service, most importantly the equipment) 👍
I'm positive that your video will definitely help other customers and other users on here! 😊
Hi @Epyc . You made 2 youtube videos earlier this year (both have been removed) criticising two aspects of the 5866T.
First was the disappearance of the wifi settings from the menu system. Still a problem.
User bunnii has provided this info regarding the wifi settings:
Ethernet = http://192.168.1.1/#/ethernet
Wifi 5GHz = http://192.168.1.1/#/wifi/5GHz/priv/basic
If the URLs work, it's only a small change in the firmware to fix.
Second was a deterioration in the throughput after some length of operation. Factory reset fixed it temporarily.
Did you get 2 faulty devices in a row, or did TPG make an unannounced firmware fix on the third device?
On another matter, some users are having a problem connecting their wifi printers to this device. No idea what the resolution might be. No-one posts back a solution.
Both 4G and 5G wireless use CG-NAT. This prevents home servers from being accessed from the internet.
Thanks @david64 for posting those direct settings URL's for the Sagemcom Fast 5866T for other users to try.
I discovered and tried those URL's back 2 months ago on the first 2 modems that I was having issues, and they still wouldn't work for me... but if they're working for other users, that's a positive.
I removed my last 2x Modem Issues videos from TPG as I felt they were no longer relevant and my 3 Month Review now covers everything you'd want to know before considering 5G Home Broadband.
Also, the throughput issue was super wierd and affected me with the first 2x modems... I haven't seen speed drops / service degradation on the third modem... only the standard speed changes between peak / off-peak usage.
