Sagemcom F@st5366 LTE WiFi Router + Twonky Server

I've just installed and set-up my NBN at home. A part of the overall package, I was provided a Sagemcom WIFI Router. At the end of the day, I now have several unresolved issues.

1: My WiFi Security cameras will no longer connect. My previous set-up, connected to Optus cable through a Motorola cable modem and using an ASUS RT-AC68U WIFI router, I had no issues in connecting and configuring my wifi security camera's. As of 11:52pm, still getting nowhere on this.

2: Setting up and configuring my NAS (WD EX4) for a direct connection to the 5377 LTE took almost 2 hours, with excessive unknown disk access. Still trying to work out why?

and finally,

3: Just found a Twonky Media Server on the default router port: 192.168.0.1:9000. There is NO documentation which indicates the presence of a TwonkyServer ANYWHERE in the documentation provided for or available on-line for the 5366 LTE wifi router.

I strongly suspect issue 2 and 3 are connected. I am unable to find any means of switching it OFF. Really Optus, if I wanted Twonky, I would install it myself on my server. I would like to turn it OFF.

Who knows what else is hidden in the background of the Sagemcom wifi router. I am not happy with the amount of time I have wasted today.

Optus, I would like to have more granular control of the wifi settings, NAT tables, port forwarding and DNS binding on the router. Its not a big ask. And before I forget, MESH networking capabilities would be really nice.

Overall, my initial rating for the 5366 LTE wifi router is 2/10.

Have you done the necessary port forwarding? If so, it may be the known hairpinning/NAT Loopback issue with the 5366.

That's the DLSA service.

Turning off DLNA in the media section should turn that off.

Yep. Configured port forwarding, still not working. Funnily, one camera  is supposed to connect through a Grid app on Android. No luck, BUT my remote wifi switches all seem to be fine. No port forwarding required there.

The other cameras all connect through a Mozilla IoT device, which works fine, BUT cannot connect to the cameras. All this was working previously through an ASUS RT-AC68U wifi router.

May just reconnect the RT-AC68U as a Access Point...

Thanks for the advice on the Twonky Server.
