Hi guys. There are always connection problems with my Hub 3. Can I replace it with NETGEAR Nighthawk X6？Still need to set up like user name, password or DNS things?
I can't get access to some cellphone apps in wifi mode but in data mode they are OK. Why should this happen. Is this the problem of my phone, router or VM?
Thanks a lot:)

You cannot replace VM equipment what you will need to do is too run the hub 3 in modem only mode and connect the Nighthawk to the nearest Ethernet port to the power.

I recently got a Asus AC86U for £143 from Amazon. Its AC2900 with MU MIMO. Had good reviews about range vs price ratio.
Set the Hub3 in modem mode and this AC86U range is impressive. The router has so many others functions that I will never use but with 3 years warranty its impressive kit.
