Re: So this is why its so slow

Thanks can you request the SuperHub 2 from VM as we have poor service?

Cheers Eric

Re: So this is why its so slow

As a heads up, changing hub will NOT fix over utilization if you have it.

Over utilization is why the service is so slow for the majority on these forums, not the (in comparison) tiny issue caused by the Intel chip.

I miss the old Modem only days when you just got a standard router ( usually Netgear ) from the ISP.

Re: So this is why its so slow

The SH2 was made by Netgear, the SH3 is made by Arris which is a company owned by Liberty.

Re: So this is why its so slow

The Hub 3 is a Arris TG2492/CE or a Compal connect box, never did find a definative answer (if there is one), but as Compal is owned by Arris, it is an Arris of some sort.

It would be nice if VM can confirm what it actually is.

Which says it all, cheap Yank crap, made to the cheapest spec, using the cheapest components for as cheaply as possible for the penny pinching company LG.. Poor quality, seems the norm with anything VM/LG are involved with!!
