Just installed Hub 3.0. replacing super hub 2ac. Also searched for answers but still stuck.
Have managed to set up some ports but for some reason ports in range 46100 and up are failing. Tried manual config and using uPnP set up by the software I'm trying to use. In both cases the ports are shown in the forwarding list apparently correctly. Only 1 port seems to be working - 5 not.
Is this a problem with the Hub 3.0 as other posts seem to suggest - is there a 'fix' for the apparent configuration failure.
Should maybe add that the forwarding of the same ports was working on the 2ac
An update .. turns out the 'problem' was not with the new router rather the effect of a Windows Update - Defender to be precise no longer allowing the forwarded ports to pass to the machine in question.
Troubleshooter fixed the problem and all is now well. Thank you for assistance and hope this finding may be of use to others.
I bought a router (Archer C7), connected it to the Hub 3.0. Hub is now in modem mode, wifi via C7 is working. BUT...
I still can't make port forwarding work. Firewall is enabled on the hub. Port forwarding settings in C7 are, I believe, correct: static IP and I'm choosing ports that shoud be "openable" (8080 and various others). I don't have Mac nor Norton firewall on, VPN is switched off. But ports still come out as closed.
Would you have any direction where to start investigating the issue? Where might be the problem? Is this solvable or whatever the router, port forwarding with Virgin just won't work (as outcomes in many discussions in this forum suggest)?
If the hub is in modem only mode then the port forwarding is dealt with by your own router as all ports are sent straight over to the C7, so it is very strange do you have the firewall off/on on your own router.
