I apologise if this has been answered, I searched and found nothing that seemed to be the same question but networking is a complete mystery to me so it's entirely likely I missed something!
I currently have a Superhub 3 and am planning on using it in modem mode with an Asus router as working from home has been a trying experience for all involved (plus my WiFi speeds aren't great). However I have a question before I pull the pin and get a router.
My current setup is fairly simple, 8 or so wireless devices connected to the router (phones, laptops etc.) with one wireless extender connected purely to provide an ethernet port for my CCTV recorder in the garage.
The Superhub 3 has the DHCPv4 set to generate IPs from 192.168.1.10 onwards as the CCTV recorder has a fixed IP of 192.168.0.5. I also have port forwarding set for this fixed IP for port 50100 (TCP protocol).
My question is, when I set the Superhub 3 to modem only mode and set up the Asus router, which of the DHCP and port forwarding settings will then be handled by the Superhub or by the router? From Googling around and reading a bunch of guides (such as this) I'm fairly confident the port forwarding will be done by the router however all setup guides I've seen say that the Superhub will still need to have DHCP enabled so I'm unsure whether it still needs the IP generation criteria.
the hub in modem mode will only assign the 1 WAN IP address. Anything internal will be from your own router. If is set to use the 192.168.0.1/24 subnet you could just change the ip range to start at something like 220.127.116.11
