Adding a router to my Hub 3

Hi There,

I have a Hub 3 and have hooked up a Netgear Nighthawk R8000 router to it. I have not set the Hub to router mode, and the system seems to be working pretty well for me. Am I missing out on anything by not putting the hub into router mode?

Many Thanks

James

The HUB should be in modem mode when you connect your own third party router.

Re: Adding a router to my Hub 3

you're running Double-NAT at the moment - it will mostly work, but it will cause you headaches in the long run as some stuff might not work "properly" or will require configuration at both the hub and the netgear to make work properly..

per previous response, you're better off running the hub in modem mode..

Apologies, I mistyped, I meant to say I had not set the hub to run in Modem mode

Also a complete waste of buying a decent router and not putting the Hub in Modem mode.  In all the years I've had the various VM hub's they ALWAYS go straight into Modem mode. 

But then I've been a customer since NTL and that's all you got was a modem.  The rest of the networking kit was the customers responsibility 🙂
