Hub4 modem mode

Got an upgrade to a Hub4 yesterday, didn’t really need it, but as the offer was £32 a month less that the previous plan it was a no brainer.


Set it up ok, saw the SSID was transmitting ok, went into the setup and put hub into modem mode.

Connected all my equipment ok, worked fine after a power cycle of the hub, kept the same WAN address as I had previously.

Now the problem, cannot access the hub on 192.168.100.1 and cannot ping the address either. Hub3 worked fine in modem mode and I could access it on this address. Tried a power cycle, but no change. One thought I had was that it was not really in modem mode, but the hub’s SSID is not being transmitted and also there was a different WAN address of course when it was in modem mode. I’m reluctant to pin hole reset it, as everything else is fine and on my Mac mini I’m getting 941 down and 50.7 up.

Re: Hub4 modem mode

There are other threads on the same subject. I think it’s just intermittent and I don’t know of any resolution.

Re: Hub4 modem mode

I believe it’s fixed in the latest firmware release - 01.02.065.21.EURO.PC20

Re: Hub4 modem mode

What happens if you setup a PC with 192.168.100.2/24 this way you ARP to 192.168.100.1 which might work but you have no internet like that.

Clearly a bug with the hub not intercepting 192.168.100.1 on the WAN IP when sending to the gateway.

Re: Hub4 modem mode

Interesting observation, on checking the Syslog on my router (Unifi Dream Machine Pro), I can see that during initialisation of the link between the Hub4 and my router is assigned an address of 192.168.100.82 and a default gateway of 192.168.100.254. This address/gateway is released when the hub fully enters modem mode and WAN address in given to my router.
