Re: Continuous green flashing WiFi light

Hi there @Klp1

 

Welcome to our Community and thanks so much for your first post. 

 

Depending on what Hub you have will depend on what the flashing light mean. Thankfully we have a handy help page that lists all our various Hubs and what all sorts of light combinations may mean - you can also go  through any checks via the link if you're having issues with your connection.

 

Lights on Hub?

 

After locating your account from your forum information, I can see that you have a Hub3 with us. With a flashing WiFi light in green, this usually means that the Hub is working as it should but you may be having some issues connecting to the WiFi. 

 

I can see that your hub has not been rebooted in almost 200 days! Before we go any further, can you please reboot at your earliest inconvenience for us? 

 

There are no known area issues but we are seeing a few errors - hopefully a nice fresh reboot will take care of those. All signal levels are where they should be. 

 

Pop back once you've done a reboot if you're still having issues and we'll do some more checks with you 🙂 

 

Cheers

hmmmmmmmmmm to the above - the other answer is its a bug in the hub3 - yes a reboot might solve it and it might not - its not an issue other than its annoying - a piece of black tape will cure it if it continues

Re: Continuous green flashing WiFi light

As Tony has said... It is a known bug on some Hub3’s and has been done to death on the board... just search for flashing wifi light. It’s unlikely VM will ever get round to fixing it !

In short it is the Hub looking for a WPS connection. try pressing the Hub's WPS button for around 20secs, or if that doesn't work, try disabling the push button WPS in the Hub's GUI. You can search the boards for further info – or as Tony advises just use some black sticky tape 🙂
