You really don't want the HUB 4 with the current reported issues.

You are better off putting your existing HUB in modem mode and buying your own router/mesh system.

The HUB, by default, is in router mode which means all devices, both wired and wireless, connect to it to acquire an internet connection. There is an option within the HUB settings to put it in modem mode, which means the HUB provides an internet connection ONLY, no wired or wireless connectivity for 'normal' devices (technically one wired device can have an internet connection):

You can then purchase your own router or mesh system that connects to the HUB using a wired (Ethernet) connection, and all your wired and wireless devices connect to YOUR router instead.

Something like:

Does link aggregation work between the HUB 4 and ASUS?

On my rt-ax86u there is WAN aggregation, however I only have a HUB 3 with 350Mbps so it's not worth it.

Re: Hub4

No it does not.

When in Modem Mode, only Port 1 of the 4 ethernets ports work. So i am maxing out the ethernet.

If only VM had put a 2.5Gbps or 10Gbps port on the back of the SH4

 

But hey i am well happy with the speed.

@Anonymous Does link aggregation work between the HUB 4 and ASUS?

I don't know, but other people have been experimenting using different setups, with some indications claiming success.  You'll need to read the whole of that thread, and it doesn't look a simple task to get it all working.  Even then, you're at risk of a hub firmware update messing things up because you're relying on hub capabilities that aren't supported.  There may be similar posts somewhere in this forum, or more recent knowledge on the matter.
