Over the last few weeks gaming in general on my connection has been an absolute nightware.
Constant disconnections that are seemingly fixed (from other posts) by using modem mode and a second (own bought) router instead of my Superhub.
I cannot find an official VM post about this being an actual fix, (or that there is an acknoleged problem with Superhubs) can you please confirm if this is indeed what I need to do to play Warcraft longer than 10 mintes without a disconnection?
This is really starting to get annoying, and it seems there is some reluctance to admit there is anything wrong.
Can you therefore please confirm if there are any plans to release a new firmware to fix the superhub issues (assuming there is one) or wether I do indeed need to buy a second router to play a game I pay a subscription for.
Thanks for replying...I understand that modem mode indeed works, the wow forums are full of people telling me this is the only way to play without a disconnection at the moment.
I'm also happy that its a fix, however I don't have a spare router to hand to try.
Ideally, i'd like VM to tell me if this is a known issueand is planned to be fixed soonor wether they have plans to fix it imminently so I can save the cash on buying a new router. At current I havent seen anything officially stating the superhub actually has a problem....
I'd hate to buy a new router, set it all up, then VM fix the issue with the hub (assunming there is one) 1 day later
Basically we have no idea what Virgin Media are doing because they have been deathly silent about this issue. It took a lot of effort just to get them to investigate the issue, for a while they even denied it was anything to do with them.
Glad to hear at least its being actively investigated. I still maintain VM should say so in no uncertain terms somewhere if this is indeed the case. A sticky post to say its being looked at or something similar would have really helped.
I fail to see whats so negative about saying a firmware might / might not have a problem aswell.
Technical problems arise all the time. I'd rather have all the information about a problem than none.
I guess i'll hold off buying a router for now then...
In that time, the ONLY problems I have had are when there are AREA Faults.
