Re: Modem Issues

Which Hub (not just a modem) model do you have (it is printed on its sticker/card)?  You say connection is slow - are you testing on an ethernet cabled device or over wifi ?

Re: Modem Issues

The SH2 is a very capable modem - I use it.  However, I have it in modem mode and use my own wifi router to provide my wifi networks.  You could do that.  Or you can call it in as a fault and tell them your "wifi no longer works" - they cant test that - so you should insist on a technician visit to fix it - s/he wont even bother trying they will just swap in a new Hub3.  Which is fine for most people - if you or anyone in your house is an internet gamer then you need to think twice about a Hub3.
