I recently purchased the ASUS RT-AC68U router with the intention of turning the SuperHub into a modem. I've followed all necessary instructions but for the sake of clarifying I'll put here the steps I was taking:
Make sure ASUS router is turned off
Put SuperHub into modem mode and turn off after 10 minutes or so, once it's finished sorting all its settings out
Plug ethernet cable from Ethernet port 1 on SuperHub into the WAN port of ASUS router
Turn ASUS router on
Turn SuperHub back on
Should be done?
So the issue is once I turn everything back on nothing actually works. I plugged my PC into the new router and it couldn't connect to the ASUS config page (http://router.asus.com I believe). I also couldn't connect to the SuperHub on 192.168.100.1 when I plugged my ethernet cable into that either. Simply put, nothing worked whatsoever. I've had to factory reset my SuperHub now twice to get it work again and to revert it's Modem Mode settings because I wasn't able to establish any connection to it to revert it myself.
I've also tried leaving the SuperHub in Router mode and connecting the new ASUS router up from any Ethernet port to the WAN port so I could see if I could connect on to it and config it before doing the steps mentioned above, but unfortunately it's not worked either. Strangely I can see on DHCP that the new router is picking up an IP, after checking the MAC addresses, but I cannot connect to it via a browser nor am I able to see it on my network with ASUS's own Device Detector.
Can anybody provide any help please, because I'm completely at a loss now - my reasoning for purchasing this is I've experienced poor WiFi signal with the SuperHub and I'm frustrated that something relatively simple (putting the router into modem mode and enabling my new router) is turning into a huge tedious task.
Many thanks in advance for the help - happy to provide any further information.
Are you plugging the ASUS into the bottom port on the virgin hub?

So I tried this - but I'm getting stuck with the Modem Mode portion, the light turns magenta but I've given it 20 minutes since turning the feature on and I'm just getting nothing from it.
After turning into Modem Mode I've connected the new router to it and tried again with my PC directly connected to the router and attempted to connect to 192.168.100.1 and it simply doesn't work. Starting to wonder if it's an issue with the SuperHub at this point.
With the hub in modem mode power off for 2mins connect a PC to the hub wait 5mins and unplug replug the Ethernet cable till you get internet on the PC. Then connect your PC to your router and login and fine the clone MAC option in WAN/internet settings to copy your PC MAC to your router and then connect the router to the hub and it should all work.
