Put the Hub back into modem mode. If it stays "red" then it's overheating. If it goes white(ish) then its fine and you light really is "magenta" when in modem mode.
Also you haven't said what happens on devices connected on ethernet cable when wifi ones drop out? That is - is it really the network that is disconnecting or just the wifi?
Finally, as well as trying the “check service,” Area status webpage" (link at top right of this forum), also try the “free” Service Status number - 0800 561 0061 - which usually tells you of more local issues down to postcode level (that may not be listed on the Area Status web page which usually covers >1000’s of customers) - that may give you more info, but even that wont cover problems affecting just a few customers.

My services: HD TV on VIP (+ Sky Sports & Movies & BT sport), x3 V6 boxes (1 wired 2 WiFi,) SH2 in modem mode with Airport Extreme Router. On VIVID200, Talk Anytime Phone, x2 Mobile SIM only iPhones.
I'll test the router mode out tomorrow and see if it really is overheating, regarding the devices.
Everything is connected and working in my LAN (Wifi & Wired). My Asus router's web UI shows the internet is down. I can't remember what info was there or if it had a public IP. I'll check next time it happens. Is there a web UI for the Hub3 in modem mode?
Thanks for the local issues number. I'll definitely check that next time!
