Re: Hub3

As my mother used to say... "when Nelson gets his eye back".

You need to do a mindset change. Regard any VM "Hub" as simply "a modem" - and only ever use it in modem mode and then you can use your own "decent" router and wireless equipment that do the job they were specifically designed to do "well", rather than "cheaply".

Re: Hub3

You can do that yourself by putting the hub into modem mode with your own “decent” router attached.

Re: Hub3

The Hub3 is a decent modem, it’s just the other functions that are useless. For this reason a large number of users get their own router. The VM hubs are built down to a price and it’s my belief that they offer very few functions so that VM can keep their support costs down. Can you see VM support answering a question from a user like “how do I setup a VLAN with my main network and my IoT network?”. You will never ever see a “decent” VM hub.
