Also check that your i.p. address hasn't changed since you set up the BQM - that caught me out a few months ago.

Re: Broadband Quality Monitor dont work

What router are you using? Is it a TP-Link one by any chance as they recently borked a software update that prevented respond to pings " being activatable"

Re: Broadband Quality Monitor dont work

As far as I know you have to enable ping requests via the ASUS router settings and not the hub itself

Re: Broadband Quality Monitor dont work

WOW it worked, Thanks

Turned On ICMP Echo on router and BQM start registering. So when in Modem Mode its up to router not a modem itself, look that my last router update turned off IMCP Echo. 

Hope this gonna help others as well.

Re: Broadband Quality Monitor dont work

Yep, when in modem mode packets are just forwarded to your own router without any processing. This makes the Hub3 much more efficient as its processor is rather restricted.
