Setting up hub as modem

I have recently tried to change my hub 3 from a router to a modem

i’ve carefully followed the instructions and after applying changes the hub been doing it’s own thing ~ but it ends up with a red light on the bottom of the hub

it’s strange because my new router does appear to set up a Wi-fi network but when I try to go into apps on the tele it says there is no internet connection 

advice?

(I have since factory reset the hub so it’s back acting as a router)

Re: Setting up hub as modem

The red light is normal when in modem mode.

Have you got a new SSID and password on the third-arty router, and if so, have you reconfigured devices to these new details?

Follow these these instructions. When the magenta LED shows, looks red to some people, turn off the hub and your router. Now tun on your router until fully initialised, then turn on VM hub.
