I have a couple of questions regarding the above setup which I would appreciate some help with.
Currently I use a USG 3 with a LAN 192.168.5.0/24 and the WAN side is connected to a BT G-Fast modem and configured for PPPOE
Next week I move to VM so instead will connect to a Hub 4 which I will plan to put into modem mode and then reconfigure the WAN on the USG 3 to DHCP.
So my questions are:-
I think that is all for now, thanks in anticipation.

1 - Yes to modem mode.
2 - Yes you should be able to. However sometimes it may take a few attempts.
3 - No, I would not recommend using VM's own DNS servers. Better to go for Google, OpenDNS or Quad 9. They are more reliable.
