Please help having ip issues ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Hi all

Hope someone can help everything was working fine but now I canโ€™t acces certain websites like the bank, eBay tescos etc etc, most work others work but some donโ€™t. I checked my IP addy and it has a bad score ??? Not sure what thatโ€™s about.

I have tried the superhub 3 in modem mode and it connects ok to all sites, so I presume itโ€™s the IP addy Causing the problem but I have other devices that need wifi ? 

can I buy another router or something to give wifi to the others while still connecting the superhub in modem mode so my main pc is ok ?

I have contacted VM to ask them to change my IP addy ? But no luck yet.

Any help would be appreciated thx in advance.

If everything was OK and your IP address hasnโ€™t changed then you caused the situation.

You have identified the solution for yourself - Modem Mode and your own router.

Would it be fair for Virgin Media to give you a new IP address and pass your polluted one onto somebody else?

Thx for the reply.

If I have caused this myself I have no clue how ? Iโ€™m not a web hacker or anything or visit dodgy sites ? 
Im asking for helpโ€ฆโ€ฆ

So if I can add a router to the superhub what type of router do I need and is it easy to set up with the superhub 

 

thx

Yes its easy and we can help you go that route if you want (I have). But hang fire - there are other people having similar issues to you today - see the thread below - so it may be a different issue.

You could always just try it but I think that may not work on a Cable modem (just DSL) so check that - also I think it is quite old and poorly specced so TBH you would be better starting afresh.

There are lots of options and we can go through them in detail - but an excellent low priced starter option that would certainly solve any ip issues and also give you better routing option and wifi is..

If you go for it or any other system then you just need to set it up in a correct "sequence" we can provide that

Re: Please help having ip issues ๐Ÿ™ˆ

OK - follow this "sequence"
__________________________

Set up your new router (in its settings) with the WAN port set to be in Automatic IP i.e. DHCP (& Nat) mode, it may be pre-set that way anyway. Then, disconnect all cables from your new router and switch it off and unplug it.

Then, put the VM Hub into modem mode ...

https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-media-hub-modem-mode

... and wait for the base light to turn magenta/purple (on a Hub3 - but not on a Hub4!). Once itโ€™s in modem mode, the VM hub โ€œMUSTโ€ then be powered off.

Next switch your router on and make sure itโ€™s fully initialised (leave 5 min) and then put in the ethernet cable (note... minimum is Cat5e - Cat6a is better - no need to go above that) from its WAN port to the VM hub (any Hub port will do).

NOWโ€ฆ power up the VM hub and wait 5-10 minutes for The Hub to initialise and and you should get a connection. This order only needs to be done the first time you connect the router to the VM hub.

Re: Please help having ip issues ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Ok great thx for that.

So do all wired Ethernet direct connections then run from the new router straight to the pc / devices ?

thx
