I have had a Superhub 1 for a number of years and it has been working perfectly (within reason) with the set up I have in the house.
Saturday morning, none of the devices in the house could log on to the Superhub (used as a Router), all were having authentication problems. The signal kept dropping out as well, even in the same room as the router.
I accessed the superhub through an ethernet cable to check things and everything is as it had been, no passwords had changed, no security protocols had changed. I could access the internet through the ethernet cable so the problems seem confined to wifi.
Things I have tried
i) I have factory resetted the superhub and readded the old SSID and password but still no joy.
ii) I have used InSSIder to check whether any other wifi in the area might be interfering but nothing is on or near the same channel.
iii) Strangely, I connected a belkin router and put the superhub into modem mode and still got authentication problems! along with the dropouts of signal.
We have had the superhub for many years and I am wondering if it is on its last legs.
If anyone has any suggestions, they will be gratefully received.
Re: Wifi Authentication problems and dropping signal
Have just contacted Virgin twice through online chat to rectify this problem. Both operators did not really have a clue and remade me do things I had already pointed out I had tried. One of them tried to work things out by taking over my laptop remotely but was a but stuck when I said I used lubuntu. Pretty poor display so far.
