Connecting HUB3 modem to Asus Ax6600 XT8 router/mesh

Hi,

I have a couple of question please. 

HUB3 in modem mode - does is matter which  port i use to connect to my new router?

Anyone experience issues setting up an asus XT8 as set up app is not recognising the devices either. 

Thanks.

The the ethernet port that you use doesn't matter, most people use the bottom port for neatness if nothing more.

Try this ...

Put the Hub 3 into modem mode …

To enable modem mode on your Hub 3

  1. Make sure you are connected (wired or wirelessly) to your Hub 3.0
  2. Open your Internet browser
  3. Log in to your Hub's settings page by entering 192.168.0.1 into the address bar of your Internet browser
  4. Enter your Hub 3 settings password. The default password is on the bottom of the Hub 3.  If you have changed the default password, enter that password instead
  5. Once you've logged in, click Modem Mode on the left
  6. Click the option next to Enable Modem Mode and then click Apply changes

and wait for the base light to turn magenta.

Note: Once in Modem Mode, the IP address you use to access your Hub changes from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.100.1.

 ………………………………………………………………………..

Disconnect all ethernet cables from the Hub 3 then power off the Hub 3.

Then, set up your own router with the WAN port set to be in DHCP mode. Make sure it’s fully initialized (leave 5 min) and then put in the Cat 5E/6 cable to the Hub 3.

Now power up the VM hub and you should get a connection. This order only needs to be done the first time you connect your own router to the VM hub.

Thanks Mike, 

I turned everything off, did factor resets on VMHub 3 and the asus XT8s and now have a fully operational system.  Good old ‘control,alt& delete’! 

Appreciate your time. 

Take care and stay safe
