I have recently bought the Deco M9 plus system due to my Virgin WiFi dropping out in hope to stabilize the connection. I have set the system up however it has been set up in router mode as opposed to access point mode (from my understanding access point mode is better?). This is due to the virgin superhub 3.0 having 4 ethernet connections plugged into it (including the Deco M9) and a phone landline connection (making it 5 connections into the back of the hub). Is there such a thing that will be able to seamlessly extend the ethernets in the Deco M9 and allow for a landline connection allowing me to put the Hub 3.0 in modem mode?

For your home network, it would make sense to keep Virgin SuperHub 3.0 as is. Instead, configure Deco mesh to run in Access Point mode. See How to set up Deco to work in Access Point mode.

 

With Deco mesh in Access Point mode, you can seamlessly use all Ethernet ports from Hub 3 and Deco nodes, and your phone landline connection through Hub 3 will still work.

 

Also, I would recommend turning off WiFi in Virgin SuperHub 3.0. Your Deco is now providing WiFi coverage.
