Our broadband stopped working today. I spoke to Virgin support and they said they needed to send an engineer.
However are a house of four and we all have covid at the moment so it's not safe for an engineer to come for another week when our isolation ends.
We really need internet, for work, kids' school, everything. Can't even play Christmas music at the moment.
I understand that an engineer can't enter the house, of course. But is there nothing you can do to help? Could I talk to an engineer on the phone? Could you send out another hub? I have my Hub 3.0's network log if that's any use?
It feels like Virgin weren't even trying to help after talking on the phone, at the time when we need broadband the most.
As your household is isolating, there is not much you can do without a technician calling, however
Try checking with Area faults on 0800 561 0061 or if you have a VM landline 150.
Try a 60 second pinhole reset as below; Remove any ethernet cables from the Hub and hold the pinhole reset switch for 60 seconds. Do NOT reboot the Hub, just let it do it's thing. Note you will need the passwords from the bottom of the Hub afterwards, so make sure they are legible.

Thanks for posting. Apologies for the broadband issues and the personal situation. I appreciate the need for connectivity but if it's an engineer visit required, we'd need to wait until after the isolation period ends before booking this in.
