Superhub Speed

Just had a replacement superhub  and still can not get a stable connection at 300mbs,just drops the connection all the time. Thats 2 modems now with the same issues.I Know now virgin are recommending using the 145mbs setting..What actual contstant download speed is this capable of.Looks like I will have to revert to modem mode and use my trusty old  belkin router that never drops a 300mbs connection.You would think virgin would of  invested in decent equipment to start with knowing how many customers that will be using it.

looks cheap but cheerful looks like it would def do a better job lol :smileytongue:

 

the only downfall of that router is the lan thoughput not being gigabit bit not everyone would need it

Re: Superhub Speed

Hi jcb208,

 

I am sorry to hear about the wireless issues. Other than changing channels I would suggest using the superhub in modem only mode and connecting your own router, as previously suggested by other posters.
