Virgin hub 3.0 DHCP in modem mode and 3r party router

Hello all,

I have virgin hub 3.0 connected to netgear d7000

Could anyone tell me which device is supposed to use DHCP?

Is hub 3.0 using DHCP automatically in modem mode?

In modem mode the hub only effectively converts the signal down the coax cable to Ethernet. Your own router’s WAN port should be set to DHCP (it’s a client) and will get an Internet address from the VM CMTS. Your of router’s LAN side should be set to be a DHCP server to give out your local IP addresses.

All VM hubs are by default in router mode. If you set the hub 3.0 to modem mode its LED will turn magenta and the remaining three LAN ports will be deactivated once you've plugged in an Ethernet cable.
