Home Internet Compatible Modems

I was going thru the discussions and noticed that Fido home internet uses few different types of modems.

I know Fido home internet package comes with it's own modems. Is there any other modems compatible with Fido's network. How about CODA-4582U?

Hi @Mob7088 

 

It's indeed possible to connect your own Wi-Fi router to the Fido Wi-Fi Modem. Here's a link with more info on the steps to take. Feel free to share with the Community your results with the CODA-4582U if you have it. 

 

With that said, by renting a modem through Fido we can ensure it stays current. It's important to note that our Fido Wi-Fi Modem, which is a modem and a Wi-Fi router in one, is required to connect to the Fido network. 

 

The Fido Wi-Fi modem we offer is tested to ensure the best possible performance on our network. This is an ongoing process that we continue to conduct to invest in updates to our network technology for you. Renting our modem also acts as an ongoing warranty since you can always swap your modem for a replacement if an issue ever arises. 

 

Also, the modem is included in our advertised pricing, so no extra charges with that. On your monthly bill we list the modem rental and internet service fee separately for clarity.

 

Hope this answers your question. If you have another modem and want to try to use the bridge function, please let the Community know how it goes.
