Putting Virgin HUB3 into Modem mode

Hi

I want to put my Virgin HUB 3 into Modem mode and use a Ubiquity WiFi device for WiFi, I have an open port on my Virgin Hub so I can access my CCTV, will I lose this access to my CCTV if I put the router into Modem mode..?

Re: Putting Virgin HUB3 into Modem mode

You would unless you know how to open the port on the Ubiquity WiFi device too and connect your CCTV to that.

Modem mode in the Hub is just that - you need your own router to create a home network.

Re: Putting Virgin HUB3 into Modem mode

Hello

You will have to setup port forwarding on Ubiquity WiFi as all traffic is routed to you own router, is this device a router ?

If it isn't a router then placing the hub into modem mode will not work as only one device can be connected in modem only mode.

Hi

So my device is a AP device used to get better WiFi signal in the house (Both WFH now), I have one already in the dormer. I suspected that was the case of the Port forwarding, so will see if I’m able to achieve this on the AP device

thanks

Re: Putting Virgin HUB3 into Modem mode

AP’s require a router to do “routing” - DHCP, NAT etc.

I don’t believe the Ubiquiti AP’s have routing options in them.

Re: Putting Virgin HUB3 into Modem mode

Yep that’s what I think

so if I’ve got this right I’ll need to purchase a new router (with no WiFi capability, am looking at the “Edge Router X”), connect that to the Virgin HuB, put the hub in modem modem and then connect the AP to the new router and configure my port forwarding from the new router, Sound about right ?

Re: Putting Virgin HUB3 into Modem mode

Yes you can do that. If you want to go “full Ubiquiti”.
