The UltraHub (with the latest firmware at the time of posting) has an issue with the "Settings -> LAN" page when in advanced mode in that it does not populate any of the values. That is, all text fields are empty. The reason for this is that Chrome is giving this error when you click on "LAN" in the left hand menu:


[Deprecation] Synchronous XMLHttpRequest on the main thread is deprecated because of its detrimental effects to the end user's experience. For more help, check
send @ jquery-min.js:4


This then causes a cascade of other errors (The specified value "undefined" cannot be parsed, or is out of range.).


This bug makes the LAN page (and probably many others) impossible to use. This can only be fixed with new firmware that updates the version of jquery being used in the Utlrahub webpages built into the router.


Does anyone here experience the same issue and does anyone have a suggested workaround?

That's a Deprecation warning, not an error...

It's an Ultra Hub, the firmware version is  17.1.7988-2461029-CRF897-RC2-4-9


I get the issue in every browser I try. Firefox 68.7.0, Chrome 81.0.4044.113, Opera, Chrome on Android, Safari on iOS. When I go to the "Settings -> LAN" page the only value that's populated is "Local DNS Server" and that value isn't even correct (I have it set to the OpenDNS servers, not Here's an image of what I see. Note the "und" in the DHCP settings.

This is how mine looks, perhaps try restarting your Ultra Hub?


Issues like this don't surprise me though, The other thing is that a few here on Geekzone have discovered is if you go to the WAN page and try to change anything in the Fibre WAN like the VLAN ID, or from IPoE to PPPoE, the changes won't save.


The Ultra Hub performs great basic wifi , routing and VoIP functionality under the Vodafone environment but as soon as you try to change things it seems that a few bits don't work / haven't been tested
