Hub 5 VPN issues

Hub 5 installed and works well, BUT no access to my work VPN and needed as work from home.  Worked with Hub 3.  Come on Virgin Media get it sorted.  Have been a VM customer for over 20 years, but in this day and age people need access to their workplaces.

Kick in the teeth is that VM want an extra £4 per month from 1 March!

Comment from IT guys at work

"In some cases, they can use TR-069 (a feature only available to the ISP when using ISP-supplied hardware) to remotely change the setting specifically for your connection. Therefore, it is worth calling their support to see if they can do this for you.  TR-069 (also known as ACS) is how they patch/maintain the equipment they supply you with behind the scenes.  It's very possible with a few bits of information from your end (e.g. router Serial Number) that they can add an exception to the standard configuration they push out." - can this be done ?

Re: Hub 5 VPN issues

Basically the Hub 5 is in trial and VM are aware of VPN Issues with it.

I'd call up and try and get your old hub back!

Re: Hub 5 VPN issues

Hi SteveB41, sorry to hear you are having VPN issues with your hub 5.

Thank you to @lotharmat for linking the ongoing Hub5/VPN issues thread

Sadly we cannot guarantee VPN's working, as we do not provide technical support for these - but I do appreciate your frustration.

If you would like we can arrange a downgrade of your hub to support resolving the issue. Please get back to us in this thread if this is a route you would like to take. 

All the best. 

Molly

This should be done regardless of VPN issues. The hubs are generally poor as routers.

Re: Hub 5 VPN issues

I can’t believe this issue is still ongoing, I was sent the hub 5 at the begging of the year and had all the issues with not being able to work at last they gave me a hub 4 back.

 

now I have just upgraded to bring my tv package over with vm and even after I said please don’t install the hub 5 they did they did and I have the same problem all over again. For 2 weeks all I have had is people liking saying they have sent a hub 4 out and when I call back to chase it there is no record of it. I was even told an appointment had been booked for an engineer to now find out that was a lie.

 

Has anyone found a solution as I’m at my wits end and just thinking of leaving and going to sky ?

Re: Hub 5 VPN issues

Less pain to get your own router with 1Gb ports and use hub in modem mode.
