What version of the firmware are you running?  V5.5.2R30 is that latest
and has a "Modem Mode" in the bottom left panel.
Just wondering as I can't say I've noticed any major issues (yet), I
could try and hammer mine and see what happens.

I wonder if it can be flashed with a custom firmware?

I will confess to being spectacularly ignorant of networking and about
the only "super" thing I've noticed about the Virgin SuperHub is the
impenetrable dross in the right-pane that is meant to server as "help".
