you have to set superhub to modem mode and let edimax do the routing

If you need to ask what this does in the comments of HUKD then you can save yourself a lot of headaches by not buying it.

Perhaps it would be clearer if we say WiFi Access Point.

This device is a router and wifi access point in one device. To connect your laptop via wifi to the Internet you'd also need a modem. Your virgin superhub performs all three of these functions in one box. I recommend googling those three terms for precise definitions.
Are there any third party firmwares for this?

Edit: So no, but OpenWRT/DD-WRT does support this SoC, so that's my weekend sorted.

Exactly. Stock firmware on these cheap boxes is usually unusable. Even netgear r7000, which seemed like a premium model, was unusable before installing 3rd party rom.
So just an update, I had this come through yesterday.

The range is awful, I've seen £20 routers go double what this will. Even the stock BT router will go further than this. The firmware itself, is also awful, even things like changing the time make the firmware want to reboot, which is a shame because of the chipset itself is decent and other OEMs have much nicer firmware on the same chipset.

That said, there's a serial interface on the board (which getting to is a pita) so I'm going to try and port OpenWRT, but I left my GPIO pins at work.

Does the router you received have the latest Edimax firmware installed? You may have to go to the Edimax website to obtain it. I owned an Edimax router in the past. Edimax customer service were rather helpful when I initially had an issue. That router lasted for several years.

I don't own the router in this deal. The international review I found said it was good, especially for 2.4Hz wifi. Could you just have received a dud?

I think the Edimax router I had, it had to reboot when updating and saving settings but you could make all the changes before saving and rebooting; instead of having to do one at a time.

Keep us updated with your progress please; I've purchased this router but am a bit of a newbie with all this stuff so any information you can provide would be very helpful!
