I will likely be doing the same once my period is up, it is easy to replicate the issue, by simple torrenting for example with DHT and UTP enabled then sit and watch pings the wired and wireless connection entirely drop for minutes at a time. Other applications such as DCS updating as it uses tor traffic have the same problem with no way to work around but to wait until its finished, but they won't acknowledge or fix the issue.
Annoyed too as I did not want the SH3, and wanted to keep the SH2, but was told I needed it to go to 200mb from my existing 100mb, this turned out not to be the case as SH2 works fine on 200mb, and then I had several months of arguing over the phone with the CS saying they would refund the initial cost of the box, and then pretty much accused of being a liar later. This is modem mode too, its simply not a fit for purpose product
I have started using the Wireguard protocol instead of UDP
To compare these two protocols, we put together a WireGuard vs OpenVPN guide, which examines speeds, security, encryption, privacy, and the background of each VPN protocol. We found WireGuard to be about 58% faster than OpenVPN on average, and even faster with nearby servers (450 Mbps).
Appreciated Moogera, i have also tested Wireguard and saw some promising results, but the problem is that the VPN i need to use is my employers VPN where i dont have much choice about the protocol they use.
Just received my hub3 to replace the superhub 2 ac and what a mistake upgrading to 350mb was. Should've kept 200mb and SH2ac as it's a much more stable modem.
The moment a single torrent download is initiated the connection stumbles. using Wireguard VPN to connect to torrent site is better but still a suboptimal experience.
I am using modem mode and Edgerouter erlite-3 and initially I thought perhaps it cannot handle the traffic as I have multiple VLAN's on it, several dhcp servers etc but I'm pretty sure router is not the issue here.
I guess the question to VM is - when can one try out Hub5!
Thanks for your post and apologies to hear you're having an issue since swapping Hubs.
I'm happy to take a look in to things but I've been unable to locate your account via your forum credentials. I will need to confirm some information with you in order for me to proceed with checks.
I have sent you a private message regarding this and will investigate further once I receive your reply. Just click on the little plum envelope at the top right-hand side of the page to access your inbox.
Hi Kath. Nice to see that someone from VM staff actually reads this topic, but im afraid that your offer to help is just meant to take discussion about @janskit issue offline. I have been very vocal about this issue since i upgraded to SH3 a few years ago and here we are, few years have passed, i have made countless escalations - including the regulatory body which gave you a set time to resolve my issue and you failed to that - and yet, my issue is still not resolved. Same story with dozens of other users in this thread and potentially hundreds of users who dont know about this thread.
Your users have actually done all the work here, found an issue, came up with a troubleshooting procedure that can be used to confirm the issue, ways of reproducing the issue and even told you what you need to do to fix the issue - which is swapping the modem for SH2 or SH5. And yet, VM is still refusing to do that, probably because you dont want to acknowledge that there was an issue with SH3/4 in the first place.
The Hub 3 is fundamentally flawed with no recognition of that fact by VM and thus no action to remediate the problem. Maybe the Hub3 flaws cannot be remediated without going to a hub 5 but I feel that Vm need to admit there is a flaw rather than burying their head in the sand as usual…’ohh no problem here’ is the stock answer and quite frankly I am getting a bit fed up with their cloak and daggers approach.
I have been a customer for many years (since NTL) and despite their gradual disintegration, I have stuck with VM, but there are new kids on the block offering much more stable broadband services that don’t throw a wobbly at UDP traffic. Something I need to consider come contract renewal time.
