It will work with the Pooperhub in modem mode. The switch on it is only 100Mbps though so it will not handle the full 110Mbps you should see from the VM 100MBps product. Figure at least £50 for any cable router with a Gbps switch and more for a good one with decent Wifi. If you had a slower product than 100Mbps it would have been OK as a DHCP server and internet gateway in conjunction with a gigabit switch for internal network transfers - I use an old Buffalo router with Tomato firmware and a couple of gigabit switches but I'm only on 10Mbps now as most of the time that's all VM could deliver a few months back. It may or may not be better now but I'm just waiting for Infinity and won't upgrade.
TP-Link do cheap and cheerful ones which I've seen good reports on - they are probably the best budget brand. One of my gigabit switches is a TP-Link and it has worked well but of course routers are more complex than switches.
