Re: Hub 3 Disconnections

Hi @Sweet16 

My BQM often turns red. I just check my number hasn't changed and then reboot my hub and the BQM starts running again

Re: Hub 3 Disconnections

Hi Sweet16,

I'm very sorry to hear that your broadband issues are still persisting and this is causing a lot of frustration for you. 

I've had a thorough look through your account and hub specs and can't see any visible issues at all from here, everything appears to be within the normal parameters.

It would be best if you could set up a BQM for us and post the link to the live graph from here so we can get a better look at what's going on. We'll be more than happy to help further once we have this.

Many thanks 🙂

Beth

Re: Hub 3 Disconnections

BQM shows no disconnections and is a fairly average connection in terms of latency etc.

Re: Hub 3 Disconnections

Hi Gary,

Thankyou for quick response. As the BQM looks ok could there be any other reason for  Hub 3 drop outs?. 

I was considering installing a third party router to increase wifi capability as the hub 3 is far from ideal and does not cover whole house. Would this help the situation or am I likely still to experience disconnections with hub on modem mode. Difficult to provide a definitive answer I know. Just looking for an informed opinion. 

 

Cheers

Re: Hub 3 Disconnections

Another disconnection early this morning (0132) with no notice or indication of any issues. BQM still recording and showing a fairly standard profile and at the time of writing broadband still off. As always, it will return to normal when I reboot hub 3. I will not waste time calling VM to listen to a call centre script reader tell me all is well and that they will monitor circuit. 

Where do I go from here guys?. The easy option is to accept that I’m wasting time and money with VM and transfer to BT. Or, should I continue to call VM following every outage and become a thorn in their flesh?. 

As previously intimated, I was intending buying a third party router and switching hub to modem mode, however with no explanation for outages then I may be just wasting more time and money.

HELP. PLEASE. 

Regards

Re: Hub 3 Disconnections

Further Info

Every disconnections relates directly to “NOTICE ATOM is restarted as part of self healing mechanism” as recorded in network log.

I note there is significant communication and discussion on this forum with identical issues being raised. Unfortunately there does not appear to be any solutions being presented.

Virgin Media seem very reluctant to admit there is an issue which I’m sure customers would sympathise with if VM were actively trying to resolve. The lack of any admission of a problem on the part of VM only exacerbates frustration. 

I was intending installing a third party router, however I suspect that this will introduce the opportunity for VM to suggest that the problem is now mine. . . .

Re: Hub 3 Disconnections

Hi Sweet16,

 

Can you confirm if the disconnections are over a wired or wireless connection?

Re: Hub 3 Disconnections

Hi Alex.

 

Disconnection affects both wifi and Ethernet connected devices. The hub light shows normal operation and the Ethernet connected hive unit shows normal light but no broadband connection. The hub does not appear when searching for it until the hub is rebooted. 

The hub is connected within 0.5 m of entry to building so no internal wiring issues
