That's a bug with the original super hub. Version 2 doesn't have the issue.
Turn off the router at the wall and once it's back it should work.
You can use modem mode on the super hub and use this, but I don't recommend it.

No, it's not ADSL. You could connect it to a modem but not really worth it.

Try 192.168.100.1 it may already be in modem mode.
Apart from that do a reset.

unplug the power and try again, mine does this all the time - it really is a crock of crap

Or you can go to control panel hardware and sound devices and It should show up there too

Should be 192.168.0.1 If in router mode

Cable router?

Heat added... Brilliant price. Anyone know of a cheap router with usb though?

Itching to buy this but gotta clear the house out holding back ....just about! oO

Thanks OP

Anyone know of you can set up a VPN on this so that when connected your data goes through your VPN of choice automatically?

Had my belkin for 7 years now, not sure how long they last so ordered as a backup just in case, great price, thanks OP.

£1.80 more on Amazon. Personally I would buy it from amazon due to after sales service being much better. Great that this has a 3yr warrant but my time spent returning this, the hassle etc, I would just buy a new one.

How do you turn this into a wifi extender?!

It's a £7 router, do you really need the best 'after sales service'?

Guys can you connect this to a network switch which is in turn plugged into homeplugs to create a wireless access point?

This is not an Extender and cannot be made into.

And yes Sir Charles it would work they your wanting it as we do the same.

Great thanks, will order one then. Guess it will be handy to manipulate the internet connection in work also

Yes, just turn off the dhcp server and change its IP to one that is suitable.

For £2 -£3 more you can get a decent ADSL router. Depends on what you are after. (Amazon)

This kind of product is out of date. Personally, would prefer to buy a better one if I got good contract.

But heat added for the price

Perhaps you didn't read the rest of my post?
After sales is more than just warranty... It's delivery (next day including Sunday in my part of the Amazon network) and more.

You actually mentioned nothing about delivery. People normally refer to after sales as warranty etc, so I'm pretty sure he did read your whole post.

I did not need to mention anything about delivery, on the basis that after sales is "relating to anything happening after something is sold" (Collins)

Making a generalisation, as you have, in the same way that he did, has caused you both to become confused.

This item is out of stock.

This item is out of stock

you can turn any wireless router in an access point by using the same ssid and password (different wireless channel) and switching it to dhcp client. obviously connecting it to the net gateway box (modem).

Access points are better than "extenders" as extenders increase lag and also potentially reduce speed

oh and the same encryption method

When people talk about 'after sales service' it's usually about the warranty, NOT delivery. It's your comment which is confusing, so maybe you should learn how to write coherently in future, instead of blaming others for misunderstanding.

PS: I did read your original comment, it was hardly an essay.

So if you buy something and it does not turn up and the business ignores your emails - would you consider the company to have good aftersales service? After all, you haven't claimed the warranty?

I'm not really fussed about what people 'usually' talk about, I'm more concerned about being factual and accurate. The fact here being that after sales is not limited to warranty.

Ps: if you did read my original post you would have seen I was not concerned about the warranty for such an inexpensive item. So why you even replied in the first place is beyond me!

I don't wish to aggravate an already fraught discussion, but having worked in a company which designed, made, sold and supported hi-tech products I'd say "fulfillment" (making sure the product reached the customer) was still part of the sales process. Different companies will do this differently, but logistically it makes sense to do it this way from a point of contact perspective. Up to the point the customer actually physically unpacks the item and reads the support documentation - which includes warranty, post-sales support contact information, etc, their communications with the supplier has only been with "Sales", and Sales should do any follow-up to make sure the customer has what they wanted.

But that's splitting hairs. The fact is that if a company sells you something which doesn't turn up and then doesn't respond to your concerns it's simply crap service in anyone's language. And yes you are absolutely right - Amazon tend to handle these things (including after-sales) better than a lot of people.

You're always a voice of reason, Mark.

Although I feel that things such as Dead on Arrival, Returns, Technical support, scheduled maintenance (cars etc), parts, consumables (printers etc), security or software updates and so on - are all part of the aftersales process. Far more than just "warranty" as the original respondent said.

Well, you should be. (_;)

And I originally responded to your comment as it sounded odd, that's why. Talking about 'after sales service' in regards to a £7 router. lol.

You've gone from talking about warranty to now referring to after sales service - thanks, my work here is done.
