Re: Asus

It depends on what problem you are trying to alleviate.

Re: Asus

Hello

Both are comparable in specs and will work with no issues you the VM broadband, you will have to place the hub into modem mode to be able to use the full function - https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-media-hub-modem-mode

Re: Asus

Sorry to take this slightly off topic but what are the advantages of per se putting your hub into modem mode? (I have a hub 4)

Re: Asus

Hello

The main benefit of using your own router will more than likely be better wireless coverage, as well as being able to do more management of your network as the hubs that Virginmedia supply are very limited in what can be done, I am long time modem mode user.
