Connecting Superhub 3.0 to TP-Link or other router

I had difficulty when trying to connect my Superhub to my new TP-Link router. I'm putting the instructions up here for any other unfortunate souls who are trying to do it. Mine is a TP-Link Vr900 v3.0. It's actually quite easy once you know how:
1) Set Superhub 3.0 to modem only mode using usual router login, usually 192.168.0.1. 2) Connect the router to the superhub via LAN using only the WAN port (as indicated on the back of the new router). Plug the other end into port 1 on the Superhub 3.0. 2) Set TP-Link device to router / Wi-fi mode by going to Advanced > Operation mode > Select "Wireless Router Mode" and save. If you can't get into the router try disconnecting it from the superhub first in order to get into the intitial setup screens. 4) Go back to quick setup, you will see a message saying "Quick setup function is only available when this device is working in DSL modem router mode" > Select No and it should connect (a weird quirk of the router).
5) Additional instructions:
a. You may need to reboot both devices to get it to work.
b.You may also have to disable/enable your LAN adapter under "Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections" in windows.
c. You may also want to update the firmware of your router to the latest version by downloading the file to your hdd first.

When you plug the router into your Hub3 then look at the little LED light next to the ethernet connection. Green would indicate 1,000Mbp/s (gigabit), Yellow indicates 100Mbp/s. I am not sure if it has lights for other speeds or half/full duplex.
