Ok so i have placed the Superhub in Modem mode, connected that to the Draytek in to the WAN port via a patch cable. I am unable to connect to the internet through the Draytek, what settings need to be enabled/disabled to fix this?

1st question has the draytek got an external ip address i.e 80.xxx.xxx.xxx?
2nd question is there an internet light and if so it usually green when connected
3rd have you power cycled the superhub and waited about 3 mins and then turn on the router?
4th if you can try to ping this ip 192.168.100.1 and if you can get to that via a web page?
5th have you got the ethernet patch cable in the firt ethernet port next to the coax conection?

The cable is coming out of the modem mode active port on the Superhub and goes in to the WAN port on the Draytek.
I will power cycle the superhub and see what happens.

So the "Act" green light is cycling off and on (not full on). The WAN light is full on.
I am able to connect to the internet through the Superhub with a laptop just not through the Draytek. Can anyone confirm what settings need to be set on the Draytek? Should i use DHCP or Static IP on the Draytek under the WAN section?

Right, so it has now connected. Was getting 26ms Latency, reduced to 10ms by turning off the NAT on the Draytek. Speed is down though, can get 50MB/s while connected to the Draytek wired, but about 20MB/s when wirelessly connected using Speedtest. Any ideas?

Not that you're gonna like what I say, but wireless is a total **bleep**shoot with so many variables.
There's distance, walls, channel contention, interference and a whole load of schmitt to wade through.

Well i've been tinkering with the different channels and modes but haven't found a combination that maxes out the connection. Just wished the superhub wasn't so **bleep** where it currently is.
