Third party router setup

I should be live with VM at the end of the month. I intend to use the VM router in modem only mode and use my current router (Asus RT-AC86U).

Could somebody please point me to a list of router settings that I would need for the VM network?

TIA

Re: Third party router setup

just as long at the WAN connection set as dynamic, when got the hub installed just need to do
put hub into modem -> https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-media-hub-modem-mode#hub3
turn off hub
turn off asus
connect ethernet cable from hub (port close to coax cable) to asus WAN port
turn on hub, wait for lights to go stable
turn on asus

Re: Third party router setup

I am thinking of the MTU settings etc not just the interconnections. My Asus is highly configurable and I want to optimise as many settings as possible for the VM network.

Cheers

Re: Third party router setup

The only published information is on download speeds.

For gamers latency isn't that good with the hub 3.0 but as it's to do with the modem you can do nothing about it.
