Hub3 VDSL router!

I'm looking to buy a reliable vdsl router because the hub3 is dodgy. I only need the router for my PS4 so being wireless or having other devices connected to it isn't a concern. My hub3 will be used in modem mode. Any suggestions?

Re: Hub3 VDSL router!

you can not use a vdsl router it has to be a cable router.

Re: Hub3 VDSL router!

It doesn't have to be a 'cable' router as such, just a standard router like those offered by ASUS and Netgear with no modem inside. 

ASUS are very good.

Re: Hub3 VDSL router!

I read somewhere that fibre optic broadband needs a VDSL router and normal broadband runs on a cable adsl router??

That's for broadband down your phone line, not for cable based broadband.

Re: Hub3 VDSL router!

If you work for virgin then I'm sure your aware of the hub3 problems. What type of router would you recommend for my specific needs? I have the 200 gamer package that's ONLY used for the PS4 with a cable connection so having numerous devices or wireless signal is irrelevant.

Re: Hub3 VDSL router!

Makes no difference what you have as it all has to go through the hub3 anyway. Just because you would be going to a 3rd party router after the hub3, doesn't mean you will change the hub3 issues.

Re: Hub3 VDSL router!

Can I change the hub3 then or can virgin send me the previous model or a model that works?

Re: Hub3 VDSL router!

You can ring up and ask, probably best to speak to retentions or cancellations as the scripts of offshore won't understand your query.

As they want everyone on a 3, they might (and is within their right to) say no

Re: Hub3 VDSL router!

I suggest this router: http://www.netgear.co.uk/home/products/networking/wifi-routers/R8500.aspx

Nice and stable for me when using the SH3 in Modem mode ( well in the day time anyway due to peak time congestion )

also has good parental controls.
