You can also set a static IP for your device on the Hub itself. In advanced settings select LAN IP > DHCP Reservation section and you can assign IP's to a specific MAC address. ( This is on the D2 Hub you have).

the lease renewable will not drop any active connections. the computer will send out a dhcp renew request before its time to expire. if it gets the same ip it will not change anything and jsut carry on. if its droping the connections then its not proforming dhcp requests correctly
Sadly not a Virgin customer anymore.... Unless you want to cable my new street. my internet sucks.

Like for the computer its when does it renew and retry say 20mins before with 8 retries every 60sec? Then there is the DHCP server with when do I allow a renew? At any time? Or say 10mins before with a 5 min window to renew?
With all that in place its possible and depending on how its setup one could miss the renew.
------Die-hard direct connection modem user---Believing is catch 22 the Super hubs 1, 2 & 3 could have been built better the years go by and we can't see the mistakes that were made to make things right. Use modem mode If I could offer you only one tip for the future, modem mode would be it. BQM, Outgoing ports test
Hi, did anyone manage to get a satisfactory reponse to this issue, I have had my superhub about a week now and am getting totally fed up with having to reconnect my wireless printer to it, after reading these forums I can see things are just not going to get better any time soon.
There seems to loads of people all suffering with the same issues, some going back to 2009, surely Virgin have come up with a fix by now.
If anyone has any ideas please please let me know.
