Just been reading about the Super Hub 3 , how much better in performance is it than my Super Hub regarding WI FI distribution around the home , and would it connect without the need for power line use ?

Well Colin, if you've really been reading the forum you might have formed the impression that the Hub 3 (even VM can't bring themselves to use the word 'Super' anymore) is about as much use as a dead parrot ... but I couldn't possibly comment.    Smiley Wink

Re: Super Hub 3

At least they restrained themselves from calling it the awesome hub so it can't be that good..

Re: Super Hub 3

From my perspective, and I've had one for nearly a year, the Hub 3 is a reasonably good device that is in need of some fixes to long standing irritations in router functions.

I normally use modem mode with a decent router attached. So that is perfect. The router functions of the Hub 3 are lame, like the Superub predecessors. That is so as to suit VM's support convenience, making it a get-you-going device.

Hope all that's helpful.

Re: Super Hub 3

I agree totally Sephiroth. Should really be called the Modem3, as it is an excellent modem if you use your own router and access points. More and more people are now 'network savvy' and can easily configure their own network. Unfortunately there are still a large number of people who want a simple connection setup and VM seem to assume this is everybody.

Re: Super Hub 3

Hi - do you know if the Hub 3 works better with VPN's? I have an older SuperHub that blocked my company VPN (until I learned to fix the "pass through" settings in the Firewall), but it still isn't completely compatible, annoyingly, it still blocks a key piece of software that we use (a document management agent).

I was just wondering if updating the Hub might be a good idea at this point.

Many thanks !

Re: Super Hub 3

the hub 3 imho, its a piece of junk, the chipset is has is dreadful and is in need of some serious fixes, the best router virgin supply at this moment in time, is the 2ac.
