I was on this forum a while ago, as i was going to upgrade my superhub 2 to a superhub 3 but there was a huge thread saying that the super hub 3 is rubbing for gaming as it suffers from a puma chipset fault or something along those lines.
The last i read there was a firmware update being rolled out.
Did this fix the issue? is all ok now with the superhub 3 or should i still stick to my superhub 2?
From what ive read over the last few months (i don't have a hub 3), Is that the issue is "Better" for a lot of people (not all)
At the end of the day though, the hub3 still has the chipset at the heart of it and that chipset is the thing that is causing the problems. People saying having it in modem mode with your own router causes no issues at all.
Hope this helps but im sure someone with a hub3 themselves will chime in.
I run my SH3 in modem mode and have never had any problems as Bradlewis mentions, since I became a VM customer my SH3 has had firmwares 605, 608 and most recently 610.
Most people say 608 "fixed" the issue but again as Bradlewis mentions it's no so much a fix as it's a fundamental hardware problem but it does appear to alleviate the issue for most people however if I were you i'd stick with the SH2 for as long as you can.

On firmware .608
If you SH2 is fine though, might as well stick with it I guess.
I second this.

I dont work for VM. But I work in IT, and I know my tech. My advice is at your own risk. If you are happy with my answers please press Kudo ?
Not an issue with speed etc, is the Intel chipset in the box, my ping went from 80 to 140 after switching from talk talk, when PC gaming to st Louis. And my speed is 380mb/s to 270. Using cat7 cable, need sh4 with Broadcom. Intel even being sued about it by various corporations, so I have read,
