Most services have clients that can be installed either on Windows or Linux (Unix) platform. The first one let you configure the Bell Home Hub 3000 in a way where you can use your own router/firewall with the Home Hub in a mode where your device will receive a Public IP address from the Hub.
Please note: The set up and use of the USB feature is not supported by Bell Internet technical support due to the wide range of USB devices available.
I still need to figure out how to have my Fibe TV up and running.
I did this on my side, I am not using the internal one from the Bell Modem. Ontario.
***** UPDATE FROM DECEMBER 4th, 2019 *****.
Your current region:
My Internet and IPTV Services with Bell Aliant are working fine including apps like YouTube, Netflix and On Demand! Do you have a DDNS integrated function on your Asus?
Support was useless but I found a very simple solution: connect the WAN port on an ordinary router to one of the LAN ports of the modem and configure the router to connect to the internet using PPPoE with the Virgin Moble credentials (User Id and Password) which can be obtained from Support if one doesn't have them already.
I find that life was easier back in the days with Cable Modem, only 1 function and it was to establish your Internet connection, nothing complicated, easier to manage! That's the whole point of WAN. You’ll pay a lot more for Wi-Fi 6 than Wi-Fi 5 and you probably don’t have high enough wifi speeds from Bell to notice the difference.
I am getting an external IP on my HH3 and on my firewall as well which is good.
You can get that under the DMZ section and activating the 'Advanced DMZ' but I believe this is only for HH3 like I said. It's separate from the Internet WiFi. God I miss those days! : using the TP-Link type converter from Fiber to UTP, using the Fibe connected to your Router, using the Fibe connected to your Switch etc. This option sounds great I have to admit but as far as I know, you WON'T be able to use the Bell Home Phone Service with this configuration (until the issue has not been resolved, if this is the case, let me know so I can update my post). I also had an outdoor camera that kept going offline but it hasn’t gone offline since I’ve had the new router. (see below). I read the entire thread and it contains really good information and details on how people managed to accomplish this. All rights reserved.
This was done by sending ARP requests to the default gateway, in my case this option was activated and prevented my Firewall from receiving its Public IP from the Hub.
The second one is to completely remove the Home Hub 3000 from your network and use your own device instead. Guest 8675309 I believe you have the HH2. Unfortunately my phone service is not working but like I mentioned earlier, I am using IP Phone therefore this does not impact me whatsoever.
The first one let you configure the Bell Home Hub 3000 in a way where you can use your own router/firewall with the Home Hub in a mode where your device will receive a Public IP address from the Hub. Would you be able to install a DDNS client? If you have a Router or a switch that accepts GBIC or Fibe connection (see below), you won't need this converter.
Hoping that this post helped you solving some of your issues.
The HomeHub 3000 uses a hidden 5GHz network for the TV receivers. Do you have WiFi 6 enabled devices? Do I need it, the answer is absolutely NOT! How were you able to change from the homehub to the nest wifi? DMZ is not enabled on my Home Hub. The mesh system with wifi 6 will cover the entire house with 2 units, so thats not an issue.
This is just a community. I decided to go with IP Phone Service instead since the longue distance plans were cheaper for me.

Nice thing is the gt-ac5300 seems stable now. giverhell:https://giverhell.com/2016/09/01/use-router-bell-aliant-fibreop-internet-enabling-advanced-dmz/, DSL Reports:http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r31118482-Yes-you-CAN-bypass-the-HomeHub-3000, Disabling wan down browser redirect notice I think fixed it on asuswrt as I wasnt getting a similar ip to what hh2k was showing & it seemed that crackle on xb1 was being blocked(not that it will matter on wednesday unless your using something like unotelly).
