gamer package useless upgrade

I recieved the superhub 3 today, and set it up, i wanted to portforward for certain multiplayer games. It turns out theres no option for this? no new firm ware?  Anyway, the reason i took out this package (gamer 200) was in the hope by some strange miricle, virgin would supply me with the connection as advertised.

it turns out, its made no differance at all.  whats wierd, is ive seen the increase in upload speed, but its had no effect on this game at all?  im still last in the lobby playlist, i can never find the enemy, i am always out gunned every game, its like im on a totaly differant server.

i wouldnt even say it was lagg, like you experience in other games from time to time, this is like call of duty, does not like virgin media?  i never have this trouble on any of my other games.

back to the portforwarding, ive always ported my on line multiplayer games, to be sold a package, that doesnt give gamers this option is crazy, can you please explain this to me please

There is an option for Port Forwarding under Advanced Settings > Security > Port Forwarding.

Like many things on the Hub 3, it might not work exactly as it should!

What difference where you expecting to see?

 What platform are you playing on? Which game is it you are having issues with?

Re: gamer package useless upgrade

I still struggle to understand why anyone would use the superhub as the router and not just in modem mode. My suggestion would be to buy a half decent router and just have the SH as your gateway to the internet.

SADLY, NOT ALL OF US, are clued up on how to set routers/modems up etc. most of us pay for a service and plug what we get into a socket

I understand that I would seriously consider looking into what options you have if you tell us a price range im sure we can suggest the best routers for that price.
