Re: Hub 3. WiFi keeps auto re-enabling every 10 mins

Interesting that you can still access with WiFi off. I might test that later.  Attached is a screenshot of the settings I have been disabling. As you can see it's back on again!Screenshot 2021-03-04 113511.jpg

i suspect you’re right - it’s more likely a bug than an intentional feature. doesn’t change much though, if it is a bug it’s anyones guess as to when a fix will be issued for it.

Re: Hub 3. WiFi keeps auto re-enabling every 10 mins

This is happening to me right now! I still need to use my hub 3's lan ports for my main pc while using another port for a separate asus wifi router. After about 10 minutes it keeps bloody re-enabling itself, I noticed the same as you in regards to the channel optimization buttons so I've tried every combination of turning those off first and its still bringing itself back. I've put it into modem mode for the moment but I don't intend on continuing with this option.

Re: Hub 3. WiFi keeps auto re-enabling every 10 mins

Hi cd67232382,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums, thank you for your post.

 

I'm sorry for our delayed response and to hear you've been having some trouble with your broadband connection. Can you please confirm if you have tested your Hub 3 in router mode and using it's own WiFi to see if the issues still occur?

 

I've been able to locate your account but your hub isn't currently showing as 'unreachable', so I'm unable to run any diagnostics on it right now. Is the hub currently turned on?

 

Thanks,

 

Beth

I think you missed the point they don't want the wifi on in router mode.

You've clearly not read the issue I have.  There is no problem with my broadband,  that works fine.  

Why would I test the WiFi of hub3 ? I know that works as I literally can't turn it off!!!!

Hey - I didn't understand what you would technically like to do - but a roll of foil around a shoebox placed over the hub will stop it broadcasting WIFI.  I have some copper mesh actually.

If Virgin have a bot that is re-enabling all wifi so they use your home to make money by broadcasting the router's signals to anyone walking outside - this might be the only way to deal with it.

Pretty tragic that this is what I might actually have to end up doing!

Re: Hub 3. WiFi keeps auto re-enabling every 10 mins

Yes tragic, but also par for the course these days.

Many companies are using Covid to do dodgy things that they would not normally be able to do.  A bit of a smash and grab whilst the emergency goes on.

I remember couple of years ago or so Virgin talking about using people's routers for passing traffic walking down the street, but technically I don't know what it is.

One thing is for sure, switching the 5GHZ broadcast back on against the user's consent is something new they are doing.

AFAIK ... of course they won't be advertising these things.

Let us know how you get on.
