Bypassing a set top box from a video on demand provider in order to increase bandwidth for web access through a DSL modem..
Posted on 2001-08-03
I have a british telecom supplied DSL line and modem. The modem provided has an ethernet port but apparantly this cannot be used for a direct internet connection because the control stream for ethernet data conflicts with the remote control keystrokes of the video on demand (Homechoice) set top box.
Do I have to get a new router or device such as a Web Ramp to get what I want or can I reconfigure the existing Westell modem/router to only process internet data.
Am I giving enough information here????
