well if using modem mode, the device attached will request an IP address via DHCP.
Some have said that I need to have a static ip. Is this correct? No, also not possible on residential accounts
when you attach your own router, it should make a new DHCP lease request to the hub, if doesn't turn both hub and 3rd party router, turn on hub wait about 2 minutes, and then the other router, this should make the DHCP lease and get the IP address, default gateway etc automatically

With a router with 100Mbps ports you’ll get maybe 90Mbps max.
