Last night I spent the best part of 2 hours trying to get a new Nighthawk Netgear router to play ball with a Superhub3 in modem model. |
When the router was connected to the hub in modem mode it couldn't access the internet no matter what sequence of start up and reboot I did (hub on then router, router on then hub..etc).
I then put the hub back into router mode and THEN the fucking router connects to the internet. As the new wifi network the router created had internet access I just decided to disable wifi on the superhub but it's still in router mode.
Is there a reason why it should be in modem mode when there's another router attached to it?

Yes because things like nat will be a pain in the ass to set up if they are both routers.
Any idea's how I can get the fucker to work then?
I don't fancy spending another evening in reboot limbo.
You also likely have two DHCP servers on your network now, which is nice.
I don't think DHCP is an issue when nothing can access the network directly through the Superhub?
Every wireless device (which is everything) can only access the internet through the Netgear Router.

You've got a router plugged into a router, it's quite likely.
Aaaaaanyway.... I did this when I had a shitty virgin superhub and the thing you have to remember is that it's IP changes to a fixed IP from a different range when you put it into modem mode, so you will likely have to adjust the IP range of your router or it won't see the modem.

Thanks, I'll have a look at the IP range.
