You put the HUB into what's called modem mode, meaning all it does is provide an internet connection to one ethernet wired device, in this case it would be a third party router or mesh system.

Any device that has a 'WAN' port should be compatible with a HUB in modem mode.

VM do have a WiFi 6 hub, the Hub5, but you cannot just ask for one, you are supplied with the appropriate hub for the speed of your subscription.

None of the VM Hubs offer 6GHz Wi-Fi band, you can install a router or access point to add 6GHz Wi-Fi ability. Surprisingly few consumer devices support or require 6GHz Wi-Fi.
