Hub 3 connection issue / faulty hub?

Tuning in

Hopefully the community can help.

Today my hub 3 decided to drop all connections, both wired and WiFi so no devices can connect to it.

I have worked through the help guide on the support page and let the system do the scans, however at the end the "chat" option wouldn't work on my phone (Pixel 7a), and the phone system directed me to the app and the support page (the app also doesn't work as the phone won't connect to the WiFi.)

Wired connections are also not working, I have tried to wire two laptops directly to the ethernet ports and both failed to connect and reach

So I tried the router reset option to clear any rubbish in the system and start again, and no luck.  Reading another post or two I tried a complete power shutdown, checked all wired connections and started up again, with no luck.

The fibre box has a green light, router has a white light.

So I'm out of ideas, to me it's developed a fault and needs replacing, but I cannot get hold of anyone as the systems all say "Use the app"

So before my teenage daughter goes on a tiktok withdrawl rampage, does anyone else have any ideas?

Check with Area faults on 0800 561 0061 If you have a VM landline 150 this goes down to post code level. You could also try the web page status, but this is not recommended as it only covers issues that affect a very large number of customers.

VM will not dispatch any technicians while an area fault exists.

If no area faults found:

The primary place to report faults or for service requests is Customer Services on 0345 454 1111/150 if you have a VM landline or wait two or three days for a VM staff member to get to your post.

Thanks for the advice.

After spending 2 hours on the chat today in work, and relaying information home so they could do stuff with the hardware (resets, wire pulling and everything else I have already done again) they finally agreed for a engineer to come out and look at the router.  I'm certain my £25 is safe, but after only being with VM since just before Christmas it's put me off wanting to renew especially if it happens again before then.

Will keep you posted on what the engineer says.
