Which cable should i use for my homehub4?

Hi guys, 

Trying to work out which cable to send back and which one to keep.


Can i use my old virgin media cable that has the ASH-GISX101-VM01 supressor with my new virgin media cable with the built in supressor to connect my homehub4? (so two supressors in-line)

Or should i use my old screw end cable with no supressor on it to connect to the old cabling coming in to the house that has the ASH-GISX101-VM01 supressor on it?


I had an engineer install virgin media broadband (M350) in the loft years ago and he never installed a wall box for some reason just ran a cable and terminated with a connector. No idea why unless it was just not that feasible to mount on breese block.

I have recently come back to virgin media and have been sent the homehub4 (old one was the homehub3) just installed the new cable from the package but noticed it has a supressor on it which would mean if i install it i'll have 2 of these noise suppression bulges in-line together will this cause issues? 

I do still have an old cable which was just a standard screw fit cable with no supressor which i could use?

The new supressor cable is a sealed unit from what i can see and so i cant check it. The old unit  attached to my outdoor cable to the road has a plastic snap on case so ive opened the case to check the part number which is:

ASH-GISX101-VM01  (5-1700Mhz)

Can someone advise? 

New Kit with new cable



Black cable is coming from outside, white cable is the new cable from the homehub4 kit.

I could however swap the new homehub4 cable over to this cable the engineer installed years ago for the homehub3:


Can someone advise? For what it matters my BQM on this connection looks fine...

As long as you have at least one isolator it doesn't matter
