No internet connection

Hi, after experiencing poor performance from my hub 3 (intermittent connection, poor coverage) I added a tplink router and set the hub 3 to modem mode but it's exactly the same. all virgin tests come back ok, can the hub be faulty? thanks

Re: No internet connection

Possibly but did you follow the correct sequence...
________________________________________

Disconnect all cables from your new router (or Mesh first unit) and unplug it. Put the VM Hub into modem mode (see VM website for “how to” details) and wait for the base light to turn magenta/purple (on a Hub3 - but not on a Hub4!). Once it’s in modem mode, the VM hub must then be powered off. Then, set up your own router/Mesh with the WAN port set to be in DHCP mode, it may be pre-set that way anyway. Make sure it’s fully initialised (leave 5 min) and then put in the WAN cable to the VM hub. Now power up the VM hub and you should get a connection. T his order only needs to be done the first time you connect the router to the VM hub.
