I just upgraded to M350 but think the SH2 only goes to 200Mbs.
Years ago I got an SH3 which was used for a day before giving up and swapping back.
Today I put the SH3 in modem mode and wondered if I might be able to use it.
Can I plug the SH3 into the coax or do I need to activate it? I spent 20 minutes holding on 0800 953 9500 to speak with a human but couldn’t get through. I’m sure it used to be possible via an automated phone line (but maybe as it’s not a “new install” that wouldn’t work anyway.
Any ideas folks?
if the VM support folks can do this it would be great. Obviously like many other folks these days, I have a house full of people working and studying from home and can’t afford for a big interruption to service.
I can't see the image just yet as it needs to be approved but possibly the hub 3 you have is still on the account, I've had this in the past, it might be a case of calling technical support and asking for it to be switched over....
will try calling at the weekend (don’t want to take a chance of losing service in the work week). Otherwise I can expect plenty of grief from the family. Funny, I don’t remember ever signing up as the free network support provider 🤣
Matt, as we thought the SH2 needed deregistering and the SH3 activating by VM tech support.
I had to speak with sales about the upgrade, and then they put me through to tech support.
Really great service (wish I had written down the tech support persons name). Thanks Virgin. I know it’s hard to get through due to the Covid times but once connected it went smoothly.
it was all sorted in under 15 minutes once on the call - the biggest issue was the SH3 would not stick in modem mode, and it needed to be done remotely. Then my ASUS router decided to change its own subnet and IP! I guess because of the DHCP in the SH3 while it was in router mode. Odd thing was I connected and set modem mode last night.
I learned that in modem mode the light on the front is purple / red. Hadn’t read that anywhere.
Also you must use the top port (port 1) to connect the router. I had read a few conflicting comments about that.
Anyhow, all happy, no interruption to the service so dad is not in trouble 🤪
Does anyone know what I should do with the SH2? (I forgot to ask!)
