Anyone heard of an update for Virgin superhub 3.0 that allow you to swap the Hubs ip range from 192.168.0.x to 192.168.1.x ?
Can I disable the DHCP and move that to my server but still use WPS as I assume it's only for connecting WIFI.
Thanks.

Just checked on my Hub 3.0... you can disable DHCP but definitely not able to change the IP range from 192.168.0.x
Yes, WPS is separate so that shouldn't stop if you decided to move the DHCP scope to another device.

Thanks, hopefully I can configure another router or PC to handle routing. Sorry if this sounds daft but I've not checked this, is the firewall tied to the DHCP server on the SH3 or would it be better to move the whole lot to my microserver, DNS, firewall and DHCP ?
From looking at the web interface on the H3 I suspect the two are not interdependent. I've actually disabled DHCP now and the Firewall config nested under Security is configurable.

Isn't it a default option to change IP range?
It is on V2.

V3 isn't as feature rich unfortunately

Virgin wanted to punish us for the crime of static IPs :(

Thank you for heads up. I've complained about poor WiFi and virgin told me to get V3 to fix that. I think I will pass

I have a new Hub3 sat in a box here...
Reading various reviews I have decided it is staying in it's box for the foreseeable future

Just had Virgin installed this week with a new Hub3. Wifi range is better than my BT Homehub and speed has been fantastic.. can't fault anything with the broadband, but the TV is ridiculously slow.

You need to go for the v6 box...all the great features but without the horrible lag....

@OP...I've always used my own routers but recently received a SH3 from virgin and decided to give it a try.....yes it has very good range but WiFi performance even just for simple browsing is very slow (despite the wlan connection speed devices are suggesting)
I'll be putting mine back to Modem mode this weekend and dropping my own router back in....

I gave up on 3 after a week and went back to 2.
3 is disappointing for a Liteon product.

How would that help? He is trying to change his LAN address scheme.

Can definitely second the V6 box, it's amazing in terms of speed compared to the older Tivo ones. I no longer have enough time to make a cup of tea in between pressing iPlayer and then choosing something to watch. I managed to get one from them for £65, instead of the ridiculous price they quoted online.

If you are looking online at one, and you're still in a promotional price period, then it cancels that and whacks your package up to full price. So my £85 a month went up to nearly twice that with the V6 box. Not impressed with that I went to their online chat and got the box with fitting for £65 and my package price stayed the same and they didn't even restart my 12 month contract.

As far as I'm concerned the speed increase is well worth it, we watch a lot of catch-up TV and Netflix through the box and it makes it useable.

ARRIS are Lite-On?

Wifi on my SH3 is about 110mbit so spot on with my broadband. Annoying thing is that it snubs my smart switch, just wont let me ping or acknowledge that it exists. I got it working by setting the switch static IP as 192.168.0.15 but after a power outage the SH3 has disowned it :(

That's great news, thanks again for checking it out for me. The SH3 is working great for WIFI for me and I would hate to swap it for my older E4200v1 routers. Hopefully will get around soon to bringing down my Microserver and setting it up to do the routing.

Have you heard of this http://www.dhcpserver.de/cms/ ?
