Wall Mount Superhub Remove Base Stand

The shiny new superhub is wall bracket mounted, very nice. But the base stand now looks rather silly with the thing placed half way up the wall. The Superhub's Business Broadband manual has a nice photoshot with the stand removed. Any idea how to do this?

Re: Wall Mount Superhub Remove Base Stand

Undo the two torx screws at the back (right under the network ports) and pull hard.

May or may not void your warranty if you don't do it carefully enough.

Re: Wall Mount Superhub Remove Base Stand

Ah right, so it's not really supposed to be removed by the customer then. I'll have to sum up some dutch courage ....

Re: Wall Mount Superhub Remove Base Stand

They do a wall mount now do they eh? I asked about one a few weeks after I had my shub delivered last year (because there's blatantly grooves for a wall bracket) to be told such a thing did not exist!

It's just a bit of plastic, but only holds the hub off the wall by a couple of inches. That's fine for the standard cable attachment and also for the ethernet leads to plug in. If you needed an attenuator on the cable feed it wouldn't work.

Re: Wall Mount Superhub Remove Base Stand

Thanks for that. Doesn't matter now anyway but it would have been nice to have for my setup...

Re: Wall Mount Superhub Remove Base Stand

You could probably make something yourself out of a couple plastic sheets or wood. A few coat hooks or these will probably do the trick

The attenuator could go at the wall socket end...

Goes to show why every other bit of kit I've seen has the connectors on one of the edges instead of one of the faces. I always used to wall mount routers.

Re: Wall Mount Superhub Remove Base Stand

I'd be curious as to what would happen if you connected a one-way attenuator backwards.

I assumed it would just be like an extension cable so could be fitted either end - I must admit I've never looked. Come to that can they only be fitted one way round? If they can then the answer is simple - it wouldn't work but I imagine it make no difference. One of the installer guys will know for sure.

Re: Wall Mount Superhub Remove Base Stand

It can be fitted the other way round, but it's still a forward path attenuator, emphasis forward. By definition it's supposed to attenuate signal in one direction and not the other.

To be honest it probably uses a frequency split rather than any clever directional circuitry but I'm still curious.

Re: Wall Mount Superhub Remove Base Stand

It attenuates the downstream which is ~ 300MHz upwards and leaves the upstream which is < ~ 50MHz unattenuated. That means it's probably a resistive T with a low pass filter bypass. I've no idea if it would work either way around because I don't have a proper circuit diagram and cba to chase around on google looking for one.

Thinking about it you are right though - putting it at the wallplate end would turn it around. I have a 6dB FPA fitted and that was certainly put at the modem end.

If I hadn't got all my stuff behind the settee I'd try it out.
