Will the Virgin V6 box only work with a Virgin router?

We currently use a Virgin Superhub 2 router in modem mode and have it connected to a Netgear Nighthawk router. Will we be able to use multiple V6 boxes with this wifi configuration, or do we have to use a Superhub as our router?

I'm using a Nighthawk router with two V6 boxes with no network issues.

Should be fine, I have an Apple Airport Extreme connected to my SH2 in modem mode and they work together ok.

It works okay with my Apple Time Capsule too, although I have an issue as I can't get Netflix working on my Wi-Fi connected V6

My single V6 works just fine connected to my Netgear Nighthawk (wired or wireless) which in turn connects to my SH2 in modem mode, so I see no reason why multiple V6s should be any different.  The V6 doesn't care which hardware it is connecting to, just as long as it ends up getting on to the VM network eventually Smiley Happy
