Haven’t noticed any dropouts recently since reset, and no Post RS errors in log. Speed variable - should be 200 download but that’s rare - typically 40-60. However I am measuring via wifi so of course the slowing may not be in the service delivered to the house. I like the sound of a Broadband Quality Monitor but have not the faintest idea how, or on what device, to set one up…..???
I’m not sure what underlying model my Hub 3 is, but there is no “respond to WAN ping” setting in the Advanced/Tools menu, at least when it is in modem mode. Will it response to BQM pings by default? Or do I need to set it back to Router mode, set the relevant setting then switch it back to Modem mode?
many thanks in advance for your much appreciated help
I am having difficulty setting up BQM with my Virgin Media Hub 3.0.
Hub runs in Modemmode and I have separate Huawei router. Step 1 - just set up BQM, waited for a bit. Graph all red - not unexpected, VM forum suggested I would need to enable "WAN Ping Respond"
Step 2 - Look for "WAN Ping Respond" or "Respond to ICMP echo request from WAN" checkbox i Advanced-Tools-Ping menu as per instructions in BQM Router configuration guide. There isn't a Ping menu. Not unexpected, VM forum suggested I would need to set Hub back to Router mode.
Step 3 - set back to Router mode (192.168.0.1). there is an Advanced-Tools-Ping menu 🙂 But there is no "WAN ping respond" or equivalent setting in it - or in any other part of the menu structure that I could find. HELP!
My Hub 3.0 says H/w version 10, S/w version 9.1.1912.304
How do I set it to respond to Ping requests from the BQM? Thanks in advance!
Thank you for coming back to us. I'm sorry to hear that you're having some issues setting up the BQM! I understand that it can be overwhelming sometimes.
Have you been able to set this up yet? Have you tried to set up the BQM to run through the Virgin Media Hub directly, instead of running through a third party router? We'll be limited as to what information and diagnostics we can run through if your Hub is in modem mode. We will be limited to see if you're experiencing any issues.
How has your connection been recently, since the pin reset? After running some checks on our systems, I can see that you're having some downstream power level issues. We'll be happy to have a technician arranged to have a further look into this for you if you'd like.
Keep us updated on how you get on and if you need any further assistance. We're happy to help.
BQM now running OK for a few days and not showing any serious issues - everything seems to be behaving itself in terms of reliability. In terms of speed, I need to connect a PC direct to at least the router to measure (currently via HomePlugs or wifi for reasons of house geography) - I understand that if I see a problem I will have to revert to Hub mode to prove it. I will attempt to find time to do this but it may be a couple of weeks - other priorities at present. Thanks for keeping and eye on this
Thanks for the update, glad to hear everything seems to be OK with no issues, I have been able to have a look at things our end and can confirm no issues showing, please let us know what speed is showing once able to run a test Via Ethernet.
If you do have any further issues, please do not hesitate to reach back out to us?
