What issues are you having with the Hub3. Putting it into modem mode with your own router should not have any detrimental effect on connection speeds. Which one(s) to go for depends on your budget and what additional tech specs and features you are looking for?.

My services: HD TV on VIP (+ Sky Sports & Movies & BT sport), x3 V6 boxes (1 wired 2 WiFi,) SH2 in modem mode with Airport Extreme Router. On VIVID200, Talk Anytime Phone, x2 Mobile SIM only iPhones.
It works perfectly! my speeds are 99% over 350Mbps , more around the 380Mbps. The router handles all the traffic and I have a network of over 25 devices including media servers and smart Tvs, Gaming Pcs and Consoles, Ipads and Iphones. Also my wireless network footprint expanded with this router, and the baby camera stopped constantly "dropping" connection and now works perfectly!
Get your VM Router in modem mode, you wont regret it!
Hi, I think I'm going to try the ASUS-901G0241 router mentioned in SKU11meister post. Sorry if a daft question, but how do I connect it to my hub 3.0? does it go into one of the two telephone ports or into one of the Ethernet ports? Tks john
you need to log into your router and put it into "modem mode". This shuts down all the router funtions that your new router will take over. Only one of the ethernet ports on the back of your superhub will then be active, you plug an ethernet cable into that port, and plug the other end into the WAN port on your new router.
The phone ports on the superhub are just for VOIP phones (your virgin phone line) just plug a phone into these and nothing else.
Just a quick update and to thank everyone for their help/input. I got the asus router, it was really easy to install and I am now a happy bunny with high speed broadband via wifi throughout most of my house. I'm getting 330mbs in all rooms apart from one where it is around 190mbs...happy days:)
