Modem mode on your Hub 3.0


Enabling modem mode allows you to connect your own WiFi kit to the Hub 3.0, effectively turning the Hub 3.0 into a standalone DOCSIS 3® cable modem.

To enable modem mode on your Hub 3.0

  1. Make sure you are connected (wired or wirelessly) to your Hub 3.0
  2. Open your Internet browser
  3. Log in to your Hub's settings page by entering 192.168.0.1 into the address bar of your Internet browser
  4. Enter your Hub 3.0 settings password. The default password is printed on the bottom of the Hub 3.0. If you have changed the default password, enter that password instead
  5. Once you've logged in, click Modem Mode on the left
  6. Click the option next to Enable Modem Mode and then click Apply changes

Note: Once in Modem Mode, the IP address you use to access your Hub changes from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.100.1.

Putting the Hub 3.0 back into router mode

There are two ways to get your Hub 3.0 back into Hub mode:

  1. Open a web browser and enter 192.168.100.1 into the address bar
  2. Enter your Hub 3.0 settings password. The default password is printed on the bottom of the Hub 3.0. If you have changed the default password, enter that password instead
  3. Once you've logged in, click Modem Mode on the left
  4. Click the option next to Disable Modem Mode and then click Apply changes
  5. The Hub will reboot and return to router mode

Pin hole reset

You can reset the Hub 3.0 to factory settings which will restart the Hub 3.0 in router mode.

Using a paper clip or a pen, press the pinhole marked ‘RESET’ on the back of your Hub for 20 seconds. This will restore the Hub to its default settings, which you’ll find on a pull-out tab on the bottom.

Then, switch off the Hub for a minute before turning it on again.

Note: this will reset any changes you’ve made to the Hub 3.0 settings.
