Super Hub 3

Hello there

I am sick and tired of the super hub 3. I can never access its admin page. I must have factory reset the damn thing 20 times or more in the last month. Recently a technician came to service the connection and replaced the hub so it can't possibly be broken. Is there a way of accessing the admin page without resetting the damn thing EVERYTIME?

I basically want to put the hub into modem mode but the last time I did it the DHCP didn't work and the hub was giving out a static IP address. I just want to get it into modem mode so the rest of my network can e handled by proper hardware. Failing this, is there any way of upgrading to a newer and hopefully better Hub?

Thanks everyone.

Putting the HUB 3 into modem mode disables all router functionality, including DHCP.

Only one device would be allocated an IP address, which would generally be a third party router.

How to put a VM hub into modem mode:

1) Access your hub on 192.168.0.1, sign on and put it into modem mode. On the Hub3 the bottom LED will change to magenta, on a Hub4 the LED band will be green, on a Hub5 the LED will be green. Best done from a wired connection.

2) Turn off the hub and disconnect any Ethernet cables

3) Fully initialise your own router or mesh master unit and make sure the WAN port is set to DHCP (for some routers or mesh this may have to be done in router mode before entering modem mode)

4) Connect your router or mesh master unit to the VM hub with an Ethernet cable, Cat5e or Cat6, any higher specification is a waste of money. On a Hub5 use port 4.

5) Turn on the VM hub.

6) You should now be able to access the internet and the hub will now be on 192.168.100.1

Note1: this only needs doing once for each new router or when VM changes your WAN IP address.

Note2: If you have a Hub4 and your own router is NOT 192.168.0.1 then it’s possible that you can still access the VM hub on 192.168.0.1
