I currently have a SuperHub 3 (the white new-ish one?) and I am having huge amounts of problems concerning port forwarding. I am able to forward ports 80, 443, and so on. But my SuperHub setting will not allow me to forward ports 25, 53, 135, 137, 138, 139, 161, 162, 445 & 1080 as they are "reserved". Thus stopping me from querying requests to my DNS server on port 53 in my internal network, from an outside network.
Why is the SuperHub doing this, and is there any way I can overcome this obstacle. On previous Virgin Media equipment, I have had no troubles forwarding any ports. Until now.
Will setting my SuperHub in "modem mode", and using a different router, to set up port forwarding, be a solution to my problem, or just cause more problems?
I've been keeping an eye on this as I don't want to update to a Hub 3 until I can ensure all the things I do on my router works correctly.
I've been told by VM techs that a recent update has been released for Hub 3 and is meant to fix a load of issue.
Can anyone confirm the following. 1) Xbox Live and PSN are not having issues? 2) Port forwarding is no longer block on Port 25 and port 80? 3) There is no longer the stupid requirements for WPA keys & user logons? 4) That you can change you IP settings and disable DHCP on the router?
Thanks for the reply. I was told I was gonna get a Super HC 2 AC. But they sent me a 3 instead. Now they say they can't give me a 2 AC as they don't have any of them.
I powered the new router up without connecting it to my connection and there is some few options. I'm just wondering if the current firmware is better. I might turn it on again and check for the firmware.
