Yes, Although you could just buy a router as you'll still need to use the hub 3 in modem only mode.

Yes just use it in bridge mode. Out of interest what's wrong with your homehub? Never had any problems myself

I believe you don't even have to put the homehub In bridgemode. I could be wrong though.

This router should work once you have your BT credentials since it's a modem too.

BT Homehubs cannot do bridge mode. You can use this router to replace your homehub entirely or you could get a separate modem and router.

As for this router...
I've had this exact router and the performance of the VDSL modem inside it is pretty bad. I lost 6Mb/s down and 2Mb/s Up with this. In the end I had to reconnect my old vdsl router, set that to bridge mode and buy an Asus router instead. I got my speed back and the Asus routers trump Netgears in every way.

I had two of these to try. Sent the first one back for a replacement and I got equivalent performance loss. Obviously it could be good in someone elses situation but if anyone intends to buy this I recommend you check the performance between this and your old vdsl router/modem.

Yeah you are probably right to be honest , I guess that would be the best solution also
I got the virgin one, is this going to be an improvement or negligible

You can definuse this as a modem for BT “fibre” (FTTC - the old infinity 1 and 2 services). I replaced my BT home hub with it. The WiFi is much better and it seems to be slightly faster. It doesn’t need rebooting as much as the BT hub and you have much more control. I was having problems with the hub seeing my printer which went away as soon as I got this.

That is correct.

If you can get your internet to go through the Ethernet port and not through the ADSL/VDSL port then I don’t see why not. Don’t have this one myself but I know you want to be looking for just a router and not a *modem* router as Virgin use the Super Hub as a modem at all times, regardless of your choice of router!
I have mine bridged at the minute with my nettduma r1
I bought this then gave it back as saw no improvement in wifi range/signal compared to my plus net router, bought the BT Whole Home for same price and much better. Depends what you want to upgrade for.

Good to know, same here, just did it with mine. No issues so far - Wi-Fi range & speeds seem better, plus many more features compared to the standard Sky fibre router (SR-102) & the SkyQ hub.

Can I ask what was the original firmware version (if you remember) & to which version did you update it please? Only answer if yours is also v2 of the router, thanks.

How do I tell if it's a V2? Can't see it anywhere so I assume a V1.

Only main issue which I forgot about... I couldn't get my 3TB USB 3.0 drive to be recognised by this, which is very annoying...

NTFS file system?
Tried NTFS, FAT, ExFAT. The drive is detected, but ReadyShare does not see it nor allow me to create a share

If v2, it'll be mentioned on the label on the underside.

Did you try a firmware update? This may sort it. Make sure to download & install the correct one for your version.
Mine has died, it's been plugged in 36 hours, flipping fuming
I've got an R7000p which I use (and love) and purchased the D7000 for my parents. Gutted I didn't get the D7000 as it's the nuts. Heat added!

Why do you say that when the D model is virtually the same (specs & features), but with an inbuilt modem? Many actually prefer to have a separate modem & router, as the modems (&/or firmware) on these modem+router combos are usually not very reliable.
this thing is a huge beast. I got the other version of it without built in modem. So far its been running fine.
I tried setting up Advanced Tomato on it but once I had that installed then it wouldn't detect an internet connection and I couldn't find any answers online so ended up going back to stock.
