I'm actually calling 1688 to come and install this for me within the next week, can any other bros out there using this new pace modem advice if i should hold off?
Because there seems to be mixed reviews here and there.

For me, the Wifi signal strength of this Pace A5520N is lower than my previous 2Wire 2701HGV (white Mio box) from Singtel. But it's been on 24/7 for a week plus and I have not experienced any disconnection from the Internet side yet. Will probably replace it with an Asus N56U later.

Yes, I've been looking for a way to bridge this new router as well. The IU is different from the 5012nv which I had but was changed by Singtel when I shifted to a new place, and the router broke.

Anybody has the user guide for pace 5520N?

Installed one week ago and was good for internet and IPTV.
But this week, every 20min the IPTV LED will be red and "TV signal lost, pls call 1688"

Call ST for 4 times and finally agree to send technician but have to wait till next week.
So I ask the girl on 1688, "so meantime from now till next week what i do with my MIO?"

But discover that if I reseat the ethernet cable between the pace and set top box, a minute later MIOTV is back.
I have change the cable, the ports but still the same.

So what exactly does it mean when IPTV led is red?
Signal lost from ONT, or lost connection to set top box?
If I turn off set top box, the IPTV led is red.....

My IPTV is red only when I power off the STB. The installer said its normal. Never encountered IPTV LED red when STB is switched on.

@Boro,

The user guide comes together with PACE. If it was not given to you ask ST for one.

In any case there is nothing in the guide about setting up iptv.

Edit: Read #1351 of this thread>>Official MIO TV Thread.......

I'm also having problem to connect Lan cable (from notebook) to A5520N. Any sifu can help on this? Basically I've tried to connect Cat5E cable to Port1,2,3,4 but seems like no internet connectivity.


Please help.
