Re: Connect a better router (for its WIFI) to my SuperHub1

Most people just want better WiFi, many do not have any Ethernet connected devices. A general purpose retail router is overkill, all they need is a good quality Wireless Access Point.

Re: Connect a better router (for its WIFI) to my SuperHub1

Hi Legacy1

The link included the wrong address, when I used '192.168.0.1' it worked fine.  but I had to navigate to router status.

For some reason  'http://192.168.100.1/VmRouterStatus_configuration.asp' won't work with my router.

Even if I change it to the correct address  'http://192.168.0.1/VmRouterStatus_configuration.asp'  it won't work.

If I use '192.168.0.1' address and navigate to router status I get this address 'http://192.168.0.1/cgi-bin/VmRouterStatusStatusCfgCgi'  also, it does work with the anti virus and VPN on.  Perhaps its because im using the old superhub 1.

Re: Connect a better router (for its WIFI) to my SuperHub1

No its the right link because I'm using the SH1 192.168.100.1 work both in router mode and modem mode.
Try
http://192.168.100.1/RouterStatus.html
and click Operation Configuration to get the Max Traffic Rate

Re: Connect a better router (for its WIFI) to my SuperHub1

Now that address works but only with the VPN Off!  But the one I found works with the VPN On.  

Strange, but you techies probably know why.

The VPN may exclude 192.168.0.0/24 but not 192.168.100.0/24

Re: Connect a better router (for its WIFI) to my SuperHub1

Without knowing all the specifics of the VPN being used and its configuration, I can only speculate that the PC has an IP address in the 192.168.0.0/24 subnet so 192.168.0.1 is a local address and the VPN software doesn't get in the way. 192.168.100.1 isn't on the same subnet so the VPN software will encapsulate the traffic and try to tunnel it - the hub's management interface won't see it.

Re: Connect a better router (for its WIFI) to my SuperHub1

At the risk of hijacking this thread further (!) readers (possibly including the OP) might be interested to know that something I read posted as an aside in another thread was very helpful for my problem and possibly relevant. 

Popular perception seems to be that if you connect an external router then you should put the Superhub into Modem mode. 

In fact, it seems, you *can* put it into modem mode, but you can also leave it in router mode and both routers will work. If you don't want two different sets of WiFi signals but do like having the superhub as a router (in my case so you can use the wired ports) then you can switch off WiFi using the menus at 192.168.100.1 / 192.168.0.1. There's a fragment of the relevant info here: https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-media-hub-modem-mode#hub2ac

but you can also leave it in router mode and both routers will work.” But unless your own router is in bridge mode you will get double NATing and two DHCP servers.

Sorry but I don't understand your terminology. I've tried it and it seems to work ...
