Its not possible to guarantee that you will never get a duplicate.

IPs will always get thrown back into the same IP pool to be drawn from again.

Hi James,

I am about to order the same router as you (netgear) in order for me to change IP addresses.

When I attach the netgear router to the superhub, does that allow me to change mac addresses on the netgear configuration as opposed to the superhub configuration (192.168.0.1) ?

For example, I previously had a d-link router which enabled me to easily change mac addresses using their configuration. Will this new router allow me to do the same?

Cheers in advance

192.168.0.1 is just the device location.

Setting the VM to router mode will allow you to change the MAC address easily

Sorry, yes I understand it is the device location (I didn't know the name for it).

But i'm just wondering where I will be changing the Mac address? Through Virgin Media or netgear? I can't see an option to change MAC address on the super hub device location page.

I'm guessing by using attaching a router (netgear) allows you to change it on their netgear device location page?

Sorry to sound stupid, thanks!

I have not used VM for about a year now, and off the top of my head I cannot remember.

I think it was in Netgear though. Should be easy enough to work out when your up and running though

I followed James's instructions and i gotta say it was so easy to change the mac/ip address in this netgear (wgr614) router; Basic Settings > Router mac adddress > Use This MAC Address; change last 2 digit's, restart VM superhub for 30 secs and boom! new ip!

Hi there, sorry to Necro this thread.

I hope this information is useful for following Virgin users in 2017, as I know I had to research this extensively before finding the answer.

It is still possible to change your public IP if you are a Virgin Media customer, with this same method.

I bought a NETGEAR R6120-100UKS Router, connected it to the Superhub 2, and then switched both off. Turned them on and had a new IP address.

If you want to change IP with this router just go into routernetlogin (the router's settings) go to Advanced, Setup, Internet Setup. Scroll to the bottom. Here just select "Use this Mac Address", change the last number (like 02, 03 or whatever) and reboot the Superhub.

You will now have a new IP address. Hope it helps someone.

So can you then unplug the other router and go back to the superhub on its own and it will retain the new address or will it revert back to the original one?

I haven't connected back to the superhub in Router mode simply because I have had no need to.

I don't know if connecting to the Superhub as it was has changed my public IP. I will have to try that.

However, I don't see any point in doing this, apart from maybe faster speeds that my current router cannot attain?

I will try it out anyway and let you know.

If you change your Super Hub to Modem mode, attach a separate wireless router to the Super Hub (I have used the netgear wgr614), you can then change the MAC address of the newly attached router to easily change IP address following the method set out in the stealth guide.

After you change the MAC address of the Router, turn off the Super Hub for 20 seconds, which it back on, and presto you have a nice new Fresh IP address.

I couldn't find this solution on the forum anywhere myself so apologies if I am just repeating old information.

Hope this helps other Virgin customers
