I am currently using a separte wifi router and want to use my superhub 3 in modem mode so there are no conflicting wifi signals. My V6 is connected to the S3 by ehternet cable. i know if i put the S3 in modem mode i will lose the extra ports but have enough in my other router. Can the V6 be wired into another router or are there any issues that would stop this, such as software, the V6 needing a signal from the S3 to work with streaming services?
Normally I would just plug and see but if there is an issue I don't want to have to try it, it doesn't work then have to call an engineer.
The V6 should work with a 3rd party router, so I would try it & see.
You won't get a Virgin engineer to look at 3rd party kit. They are only paid to work on Virgin equipment.
Thanks for the reply.
I probably didn't explain myself fully, I wasn't expecting the engineer to look at my other router, just that if it didn't work and I reconected the V6 to the SH3 and it still didn't work I would then need to call the engineer.
I am having ongoing issues with my Netgear Orbi and Superhub v3 in modem mode. It used to work just fine but now I have no on demand services. I've have 4 engineers and countless calls with 150 and noone will tell me what's changed. They just tell me to put the modem back into router mode. I wouldn't mind but I know it used to work fine!
Modem mode is supported by VM. What is not supported is their accessing and changing your router. Signal issues on a circuit, noise, too low or too high levels should be corrected by a technician whatsoever mode you are running your Hub3 in.
