On the PlayStation store (only) I get disconnect if there's about 1 minute of inactivity. Say I watch a video for example or browse a page too long without clicking a button. The only way to resolve is to go into the PlayStation settings disconnect from the internet wait 10 seconds and click 're connect.
It never happens in game or on any other device. However it's happened for years first on my original PlayStation 4 and then on my PlayStation 4 Pro.
Both PS4 and PS4 Pro were/are connected via Ethernet cable.
I'm not sure which hub (is that just the serial number/model on the black modem?)
I noticed the Now tv app on the PS4 also disconnects after an episode finishes if another one isn't selected straight away or I pause the stream too long. Like the PSN store I have to go into the PS4 settings and manually click disconnect and reconnect to the internet.
It's strange because online games, friends lists, trophy sync on the PS4 and internet through another device connected wirelessly never disconnect at all.
Edit: I tried wirelessly as well and it still hangs.

I dont work for VM. But I work in IT, and I know my tech. My advice is at your own risk. If you are happy with my answers please press Kudo ?
I've put it in modem mode and so far it seems like I've got no disconnects at all on the usual hang up spots. I noticed on the test my connection page wired I'd get 35mb download now it's at 53mb (50mb connection).
Its the first generation Super Hub I have.
Obviously putting it in modem mode means I can't connect my pc or phone to the wireless network though which isn't ideal :).
Brilliant I'll try that. So what is the actual problem? Why is it working so much faster and no disconnects via modem mode rather than wired or Ethernet cable?
Is it a fault virgin media side or PlayStation? It's not like I'm stressing the connection with multiple devices or anything. I could just have the PlayStation on nothing downloading etc and it still hang on the psn store or Now tv in normal operation (wired or wireless).
Seems like it would be an unnecessary cost with what should be a fairly basic operation (navigating a store, or choosing another episode after a few minutes of inactivity) Thanks again for your help 🙂
