Hoping someone on here can clarify something for me, please bare with me. I have a Virgin SH3 and I get Wi-fi speeds on the wireless devices (max 20-30mbps) around 10% of incoming supply and that on a wired connection (220mbps). I have attempted to solve this by installing a new router with the SH3 set to modem mode however even with the support of virgin gadget rescue I have been unable to get the netgear R7000 router working. I believe the issue is with the IP/gateway/DNS and maybe even MAC addresses causing the issue however nobody is seemingly able to help get a range of values compatible.

Now I have found a work around where I connect the Netgear via a standard Ethernet connection to the SH3 in router mode. I can connect devices to the new netgear networks and they all work fine. What I'm concerned about is if this setup is going to cause issues. I have 2 routers in close proximity to each other both blasting out Wi-fi signals. I can see an option to turn off the Wi-fi signals in the SH3 settings and this will leave just the Ethernet ports functioning, this would seem to be a crude modem mode. I can therefore just connect to the new Netgear router as planned. I'm not sure if this is advisable or not.

For best results, the routers should be connected via ethernet. If they are close together, there should be no reason to have wifi enabled on both.

There is a sticky in the networking board: https://www.techsupportforum.com/for...rs-655257.html
