Flashing Wifi light

Over the past few days, the wifi light on my Virgin Hub 3 has been flashing constantly.  Having visited the community for clues, I've followed every suggestion re fixing the problem i.e. restart, checking wiring, pressing the WPS button (this works for a short time) etc, but to no avail.  My internet and wireless appear to be OK although, my wireless performance does seem to dip from time to time (am I imagining this?). Bottom line is the constant blinking is annoying to say the least.  Does anyone have a definitive answer on how to fix this for good?

Re: Flashing Wifi light

Hi phljrmn,

Thanks for posting and a warm welcome to the Community Smiley Very Happy

Sorry for the flashing light, I know it can be frustrating. Everything looks good from our end and if you're not reporting any immediate fault, we can monitor this with you for a few weeks and see if it continues.

Take care.

Thanks for your reply Heather.  That's fine and I'll let you know if things change.  If it gets really annoying I can always stick a piece of black tape over it!

In actual fact, this is caused by a bug in the Hub 3 firmware. 

I also get the green flashing wifi light occasionally even though the wifi actually works as normal! See this thread for how to stop it flashing:
