Hub 4 Problem

My  Hub 4 has an annoying problem. When it reboots or restarts it returns one of my settings to default mode. I went into ADVANCED SETTINGS>WIRELESS>SECURITY and renamed WIFI Network Name 2.4GHz and WIFI Network Name 5GHz to my preference together with a password for each. Fine until there's a reboot/restart then the 2.4GHz name and password revert to default settings (i.e. on the base of the hub) but the 5GHz is unaffected.  First I know of this is when my Smart Speaker tells me settings have been changed and I am aware that other equipment has disconnected. Any ideas?

Re: Hub 4 Problem

VM Hubs are notorious for having these glitches - dodgy firmware.

Best solution is to remove it from the equation and put the Hub into modem mode and get your own better quality router and wireless equipment

Try turning off smart/intelligent WiFi, has been known to fix the odd problem.
