Connecting Nighthawk R8000 router to Virgin Media Hub 3.0 in modem mode

Hi All

I am having real issues setting up my new Nighthawk R8000 router to my Virgin Media Superhub 3, i have tried the following:

 

1) Connect your PC direct to the Shub and switch to modem mode.

2) Disconnect the PC then power off the Shub.

3) Connect the router to the Shub via the correct LAN port, keeping both the router and the Shub powered off.

4) Switch on the Shub, and wait for it to connect to the internet and settle down.

5) Switch on the router.

 

This still dosent work, the light on the Superhub after it has rebooted stays a solid red, i have reset both the Superhub and the R8000 (Via the pin hole) can anyone help me as i have just spent £140 on this router and getting no where !!

Model: R8000|Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Smart WIFI Router
