Question

disable wifi and routing on high spped gateway


Badge

I have a dedicated firewall and wifi already setup and would like to disable wifi and routing in the t-mobile device so that it’s effectively just a modem.  Is this possible with this device?

If you got the newer 5g model that is grey and looks like a trashcan, then the answer is you can’t.  It’s just a 5g hotspot.

It looks like a trash can to me….I’ll play with the setup on my router and see what I can make work….thanks

Can I change the up subnet in the dhcp settings?  It conflicts with my internal IPs

Update.  I’ve been through all the settings in the web ui and I can’t find any way to change the 192.168.12.0 network setup.  I get that T-Mobile wants to make the setup simple but there’s no way I’m going to be able to work with this device if the only real configuration is English vs Spanish….

if anyone has had any success setting this up with a secondary router please chime in with any advice.  Otherwise I’m going to have to return this “trash can” to t-mobile.  It’s too bad bc in my area the signal is good and initial speed tests looked promising for this to be a viable alternative to cable…it’s a shame that basic router configurability could keep me from what otherwise looked to be a promising solution…
