Hub 3.0 Yellow Light & Slow Speed

I activated my Virgin Media M500 fibre broadband this Wednesday. In the past several days the speed was only 20-40 Mbps most of the time. Sometimes it could go up to 300 Mbps but drop back to 20-40 at last. All the speed tests were done in the same room with the router so I don't think it's because of distance or obstruction.

The light on the router (Hub 3.0) is always yellow and never turned white. I tried both reboot and pin reset the router at least once a day but they seem not to be helping. I wonder if anyone has come across same situation and what is the possible cause?

Re: Hub 3.0 Yellow Light & Slow Speed

You need to test your speeds with a wired connection.

Wifi speeds and connectivity aren’t supported nor reliable for accurate Speedtesting

Hi tony_j1,

Thanks for your post and welcome back to the community.

Our Hub's light can work of a yellow-ish coloured light as it could be down to the LED.

Also as @gary_dexter stated, are these tests ran on a wired connection or Wi-Fi?

I currently can't seem to locate your so I'm going to drop you a PM to run through a few details.

Thanks,

Kain

Hi Kain_W,

Sorry for the late reply. A technician came by today and the problem is now fixed. The problem was caused by my old broadband socket. The frequency on Channel 12 was very low. When the socket is replaced with a new one, everything goes normal. Now the speed is around 500 Mpbs with wifi connection. Thanks.

Yes, wired connection might be a bit more stable.

But it doesn't make a huge difference.

Thank you for your suggestion anyway.
