    Hello everyone.

    I have a virgin super Hub 3 and experiencing terrible wireless issues with phones and laptops.

    The connection is very intermittent drop out and disconnections constantly.

    I have called virgin several times about this issue and all they say is I've run tests on your superhub and everything is OK.

    I also get the following responses from there technical support saying as long as I get a solid connection through ethernet ports directly then it's OK.

    Also apparently wireless connection issues aren't covered by there service .

    I would like to put the hub in modem mode and use a 3rd party Wireless Router are there any good choices???.

    I have a budget of under £100 and would like a usb 3.0 port for storage on the network as I own a 4tb 3.0 external hard drive for backup files.

    You're help would be very much appreciated .

    Go Ubiquiti and don't look back. Not the cheapest solution but expandable, totally configurable and it'll just work well.

    Edit - nvm. Just saw your budget limitations. Worth bearing in mind though if you have a desire to upgrade in the future.

    Is this a new issue? I've had this issue (not WiFi related) since lockdown with a 200M plan. I use a tp-link wireless router.
