Link to Virgin Media Hub 3

Hi

 

I Googled how to link my new Netgear Nighthawk to Virgin Media Hub 3 and followed this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCn_sLrxJQk

 

Steps 1&2 were fine but when I got to step 3 it all seemed to go wrong.
I couldn't seem to change the WAN interface settings>

Apparently the router needs to change from PPPoE to DHCP client.

I have no idea how to do this or even if it will work.

 

When I connected the Nighthawk to the Hub when it was changed to modem mode, the internet light on the Nighthawk was orange and there was no internet.

 

If there is a work around that would be great and any help would be massively appreciated.

 

At the moment all I have done is link an ethernet cable from the Hub to the Nighthawk and created the network in this way.

It's ok and the Nighthawk does create a network but the range isn't much better than the Virgin Hub (which is the reason why I bought it!) and I get the odd drop of internet.

 

If what I have done is ok then I'll just crack on but if there's no work around then it's a pretty expensive range extender!!!

 

Thanks for any help.
