I received a Virgin Media Hub 3 today as my old Hub (1.0) died.
The device is simply horrible.
Doesn't allow custom local IP addresses, you are limited to 192.168.0.*
Also, the interface is simply a joke.
It takes minutes to change a setting, then the page locks or Chrome asks to kill the task.
After spending 1 hour over the phone with the customer support, it turns out that their support isn't much better than their Hub.
So I am looking to use the Hub 3 as a modem only, and buy a router.
What I want is to be able to assign static IP addresses for the devices in my LAN, and to be able to do port forwarding.
Ideally, I'd like something with more than 4 LAN ports and, of course, WiFi.
What device should I look for?
Anyone with the same setup to suggest a working solution?
