And I also ought now to say that although my wireless was yesterday still unusable, as of today all appears to be working fine and dandy.
I'm happy now (at least so long as it lasts).
Now to think about 100Mb which is supposed to be rolling out in Brighton in November.

Very happy customer here - upgrade and switching to Modem mode was painless, My router is now picking up DHCP WAN address correctly and tested OK.

The reboot of the "super hub" took about 4-5 minutes and resulted in the upgrade from R26 to R30 being applied fine. (After reboot I could access the admin pages and my local network.)
However, it then took a further 30 minutes to get internet connected (connection status showed "Network Access: Denied" during this time) and the lights on the side kept cycling:
top: blue, centre: flashing
Lights have settled down now and access is now allowed.
Is it normal for this to take so long? (I had this problem when first connecting the "super" hub on R26.)

Superhub admin page still becomes unavailable after a few days on this R30 firmware.
The connection was reset
The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.
The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Hi when it goes into Modem Mode the superhub if you want to configure the wireless settings do you use the ip id instead of the superhub page which the username is admin & password unless it is changed?...
for example i have TP link switched off the superhub wireless(pinky purple app Modem Mode) then i use the TP link wireless ip id thing to configure right?
while this process is happening the internet wont be affected right? just the wireless will be?

After posting on page 9, I decided to try Modem mode on the Hub.
I borrowed a Belkin N1 Vision router and loaded the latest firmware. Set it up, switched the Hub to Modem mode and the results have only added to the confusion surrounding my connection problems.
Both laptops were now working better, not so dithery between web pages and streaming appeared to be better. I made one xbox wireless with port forwarding for xbl, and the other hard wired and activated DMZ for it. The odd thing is that the hard wired xbox with DMZ, disconnected from xbox live more frequently than the wireless xbox; in fact when both xboxes were on and connected to xbl the hard wired DMZ xbox would get disconnected from xbl but the wireless xbox would stay connected.
I'm now back to the Hub in Router/Modem combo mode with all security re-enabled, and I'm even more baffled than I was before. The few questions I have left are:
Are the gaming issues really the result of VM's P2P blocking software that has been mentioned on these forums previously?
Is the Hub unfit for purpose at a hardware level leaving it weak (unable to cope with the network traffic) in modem mode too?
Is the Hub's wireless side completely isolated from any wireless interference from other devices when in Modem mode?
Any ideas welcome!

My personal experience of R30 after using it for the last 4 days,
The Good :-
1) Seems to have cured the random wireless disconnects I used to suffer ( although R26 was also an improvement in that area)
2)No random connection drops that I had been experiencing occasionally in the middle of the night , although that could have been due to work on the network?
3) In house wireless coverage fine , although again I didn't have a problem before.
The Downside :-
Since running R30 my online gaming has gone to the dogs , in game ping is fine and at similar levels it was before but I've been suffering from jerkiness and lag that definetely wasn't. I've got the firewall set to on and the flood detection off. I'm suspecting it's possibly the firewall slowing things down. I've this evening switched to modem mode and gone back to my previous setup with Dlink Dir-855 router and gaming responsiveness / smoothness is back to previous ok levels.
I offer this as constructive criticism as I'd rather save the electric bill and run the superhub on it's own. If anyone else is having lag issues with R30 perhaps VM could have a look at it?

The R30 update has allowed me to use my custom firmware (DD-WRT) WRT54GL to its full potential in modem mode!
Download speeds are consistant, but lower due to g wireless speed (50mb/s package). Ping is also more consitant.
Will soon buy a wireless n router and install DD-WRT on it to serve the n clients (perhaps the Linksys E4200)
So far, no problems and able to acces the page at 192.168.100.1.

Since official release of R30 on 30meg line
No problems at all but then it was fine on R26 although i had only had my superhub a week before the release of R30.
Im not using modem mode , my superhub is doing what it should be doing, an all in one modem/router.
Wireless is strong upstairs and down ,out back my wireless printer perhaps gets the weakest signal from the hub in the front room but then i think thats due to the perhaps **bleep**py wireless on the printer ,even so it still gets a fair signal strength.
PS3 gaming has been fine on wireless as well as my wirleless laptop which i done a speedtest on the other night and got a 31mb result same as wired!!!
As for settings on hub , its all default apart from passwords.
So happy customer at present!
