Since I have had the Superhub 3, I have had nothing but problems with it. Originally it was the 'port flapping' issue which seems to have been resolved now. However I have been noticing that during gaming and VoIP calls, I get frequent latency spikes. As I use the Superhub 3 in modem mode, I assumed it was the Netduma router I was using, so I switched that out and it made no difference. Therefore I browsed the VM forums and found this.. http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Gaming-Support/Hub-3-Compal-CH7465-LG-TG2492LG-and-CGNV4-Latency... There seems to be an issue with the Superhub 3 chipset, which causes latency spikes under load. I never had this problem with the Superhub 2 which I had in modem mode with the Netduma. I don't think VM or Intel will be resolving this issue anytime soon (I believe the port flapping issue took several months to resolve). So I would suggest asking them to exchange the Superhub 3 for a Superhub 2 ac (or just 2). Another post below, states that the Intel CPU erroneously could be dropping around 6% of your packets causing at least 200ms spikes! (worth a read). http://www.fudzilla.com/news/processors/42312-intel-s-puma-6-chip-set-falls-asleep P.S. This issue may be present in some Comcast routers (Xfinity), so check the second link to see if this affects you.
Hi Guys, Just ordered my Virgin Media FO last night, it's only Fibre to the cabinet with copper to the home though so unsure of how much improvement (if any) will be made to my current 3MB with BT. Anyone else have FTTC with copper to home that could shed some light about whether it's worth it or not?
