I have read of turbo stix, and older rocket hubs working but will the 275 work with a second router. I want to connect my Linksys WR54GS.
I've searched the manual and here no luck finding anything out about the MF275.
Any help would be appreciated
Thank you for your patience and welcome to the forums.
If you'd like to connect the Rogers Mobile Internet MF275R Rocket Hub to a Linksys WR54GS Wireless-G Broadband Router and have the Linksys manage your wired and wireless network. I would suggested disabling the MF275R Rocket Hub's Wi-Fi (and DHCP) as suggested earlier in this thread by @danpoleary.
• First log into the MF275R Rocket Hub.
• Disable Wi-Fi: Settings > Network Settings > Wi-Fi Settings > 2.4GHz / 5.0GHz / Basic Settings > Disable.
• Set port forwarding: Settings > Network Settings > Firewall > Port Forwarding > Enable the Virtual Server.
• Forward all ports to the Linksys router's assigned WAN address section: Ip Addess e.g 192.168.x.x, Port Range to start with is 80 - 80.
• Or another option is to use DMZ (De-Militarized Zone): Settings > Network Settings > Firewall > DMZ, allows full access and connectivity from outside traffic (optional).
• Turn off / disable the DHCP Server function: Settings > Network Settings > Router Settings > Disable DHCP Server.
Your Mobile Internet MF275R Rocket Hub will now act as a modem (only) and you'll be able to have the Linksys WR54GS Wireless-G Router manage your network.
Let us know if this helps,
I tried this method but 'admin' does not work, how can I resent that password as well? I don't think I ever changed it but I dont remember. I really need to change the internet connect password. Thanks!
Welcome to the Community Forums!
Have you tried resetting your Rocket Hub? There should be a button on the side of the hub, which would reset all passwords to default, and then allow you to access the modem with password: "admin".
Let us know if that works out for you.
Hi, yes, that does not seem to work. it is the ZTE LTE, and button on the back but I tried that and no change. Thanks
Thank you for your patience, are you using the same ZTE MF275R Rocket Hub illustrated below:
If your device is different please let us know the model number. I can see you were trying to log in, are you still having issues? The default login password is admin, have you tried leaving the password field blank?
Can someone confirm what I'm suspicious of???
That being that the ZTE MF275R is NOT bridgeable?
Not willing to have a double NAT
Not willing to use DMZ
Not willing to use the WIFI off DHCP off workaround.
I need a fully bridgeable lte/4G modem. I've already burned thru one rocket hub overloading its routing capabilites. I'd like to let my apple network takeover. I use a rogers static IP on this account and can't have a double NAT to get thru. All the work arounds I've found are unaccaptable.
Right now I'm looking at 3rd party 4G modems unlocked with support for Rogers SIMs. Just hoping someone at rogers can confirm this as my only NON-WORKAROUND solution. Also, would like to leave the feedback. MAKE ALL MODEMS BRIDGEABLE!!! Not everyone is a beginner, at least leave the rest of us some options.
I followed the steps to turn my rocket hub into a modem only but when i go to router settings to set DHCP server to disabled, my curser changes to and red circle with a line through it. How do I change this if I'm not authorized to?
