Re: connector cable for hub 5

The Hub 5 should go on the same coax connection as your previous Hub, you shouldn't need a different cable.

Re: connector cable for hub 5

What connector cable?  It's all the same co-ax cable as the other Hubs?  Are you referring to the isolator cable from the Quickstart kit?

That's for Virgin TV V6 and 360 only as those boxes have a different cable connection to Hubs and older TV boxes.

All Hubs have the same coax connection type. No new coax cable is required if you're swapping an existing Hub for a new one.

Re: connector cable for hub 5

thanks, i thought i was missing something to stabilize the cable due to occasionally getting a low signal strength due to the router being knocked.

Re: connector cable for hub 5

Hi ventura83

Thanks for posting and thanks also to the community for confirming about the cabling. Sorry to hear about any signal issues. Nothing is showing from a system check that I've done here, all levels are in spec and no outages. 

Can you post your Hub status and logs? How to do this;

• Please go to http://192.168.0.1 (or http://192.168.100.1 - if in modem mode), 
• Don't log in, click on 'router status' 
• Copy/paste the data from each of the tabs as text into a 'REPLY' as opposed to 'QUICK REPLY'. Please do not include your MAC address.
Also, set up a Broadband Quality Monitor. This will monitor the state of your connection and record any network dropouts etc 
Give it a while to gather data and then click 'Share Live graph' and paste the 'Direct Link' into the forum 🙂

Best,

John_GS
