Vivid 200/20 Upgrade ordered, How can I get the new config applied?

I now have the new Vivid 200/20, but the sales rep was adament that i had to wait for a new router before we could use the speed increase.  But i tried saying we already have 200/12 so why couldnt they push out the new config file??

Can anyone from VM let me know pls?  Surely the config can be pushed out now?  Also I use the SH2 in modem mode so id like to use the new SH for WIFI and keep the SH2 as the modem.

Thanks

JK

You need the superhub3 for the gamer profile.

That's the hub it's configured for.




You won't be able to run a superhub into a superhub as router. As the first one isn't set up to receive the profile it won't be able to send to the hub3 at the faster speed

(That's aside from if it will work altogether, never heard of it being done)



What is your objection to just replacing the 2 with the 3?

The sh2 works for my 200/20 so surely it will for 200/20. Also u use the sh2 in modem mode so would like to use the new sh for wifi.

200/12 is a different profile than 200/20.


Just like the superhub1 can use the 152/12 profile but not the 150/10 one.



You are trying to put petrol in a Diesel engine. Just because they are both fuel, doesn't mean it will work.

The SH2 is Docsis 3 and currently has 2 channels spare for upload, isnt the gamer speeds Docsis 3 aswell? surely its just a case of having the new config file on the modem??  We had to change to the SH2 when we got 200/12meg and was told then that it would be able to handle future speed increases.

The SH2 is rated for much more bandwidth than VM offers isnt it????
