<snip> I spoke with a hacker friend who did some research on himself and even took apart my HUB 5 and found out that in MODEM MODE only LAN port 1 is working and the others are just at 10mbps
I can assure you when I had the Hub 5 the 2.5Gb port was working fine in modem mode, and that's the red one, Port 4. It is be design, and only one port is used when in Modem mode. Ports 1 to 3 are Gigabit and the red Port 4 is 2.5Gb.
As for Port Forwarding, the older Hubs were bugged and the port numbers had to be input in ascending order or it failed. I don't know if that was ever fixed.
