I am thinking of upgrading to the 30mb service, currently I run a linksys router with the ntl:250 and have never had any problems with linksys. Not sure I want to trade my linksys for a netgear!
I am trying to find the detailed specs for the SuperHub, anyone know where I can find them ? I can only find basic info about it.

I read on another forum that the "Super"Hub is a customized version of the Netgear CG3202/3302:
Problem is that VM have deliberately crippled it by removing much of the functionality. If you're used to using a decent router I doubt if you'll find it adequate.

Thanks for the link,
This doesnt seem to be the superhub, I have read that the SuperHub doesnt support USB where as this one does seem too.. but as you say VM cripple the routers.. After further investigation I have decided to hold off on upgrading, Found out that you cant turn off the router fuction of the superhub but there is a planned firmware upgare to enable this, off course who knows when this will arrive..
Yes am happy with my little linksys it has served me well so dont really want to make a trade for a netgear..if they can make so you can turn of the router part then Ill happy switch over as that is my major concern.
Thanks for the link and info anyway

I think you're correct, and that's the wrong one. I should have tried the bloody obvious thing of looking at the back. It says CG3101D, which implies it's actually based on the CG3100D, except the 3100 doesn't appear to have 5GHz WiFi.
The spec looks like it should do what I need, shame they've crippled it so much as to make it useless.

It looks just like my wdnr3700 linksys but with a co-axial input instead of ethernet. I paid £130 for it and now my Dad wants to replace it. What part is crippled exactly?
The WDNR3700 was the only router that had the features of my linksys wrt54gs and had 1GB lan and wireless-n dual band.

Maybe it is similar to the wdnr3700, but it definitely says CG3101D on the back. The CG means Cable Gateway, so it could well be the same apart from the cable part.
I don't know exacly what has been removed, but these are some of the things:
PAT (port forwarding to a different port)
Bridge mode (so it can act as a modem)
Just based on these things I think "crippled" is a fair description.

It has port forwarding, but it has to be the same port number on the hub and destination PC.
It's a problem for me because I'm limited on what ports the gateway at work will allow, otherwise I have to tunnel a connection through one of the servers in the DMZ.
