Hub 4 - Red Ring suddenly turned on

We’ve been having problems recently with our router about it constantly randomly cutting out and at around midnight today the hubs white ring turned red and nothing has turned it back to white. I made a previous post about this but it never got resolved but now I cannot use the internet as according to virgin media it means no connection. I have restarted about 5 times. I reattached all the Co-axial connections except for the main cable in which is extremely hard to reach. I will attach a photo of the hub and the connector which i haven’t done yet. Could it possibly be the cable just being work down?

This shows the hub and the co-axial connector for the hub and the tv box.

And this is the connector which is hard to reach the cable on the top is the one I can’t reach.

Re: Hub 4 - Red Ring suddenly turned on

I must say the cable installation doesn't exude quality, but I'm not sure that's the problem.  I believe that a red light on a Hub 4 indicates that the hub hasn't successfully registered with VM's network gear, and there could be a range of causes for that, none that you can influence other than the checks you've done.  I'll flag this for the forum staff to advise.  If it's not a known area problem, then they can arrange a technician visit for you.

Re: Hub 4 - Red Ring suddenly turned on

Yeah, I know the management is sub-par at best lol. But that was from the old BT router that the engineer had to drill out and that's why we hide it around the back of the cabinet.

Anyway last night, I fixed the problem by undoing and redoing all the coaxial connections (the hub still had a red light after this). Then I went into the router settings and clicked the wifi diagnostics, and it fixed the wifi (it said that the Ipv4 was not valid when it finished, though). The wifi is now back up again, but the old problem I had from the first question I posted is still happening. But the problem has been fixed for this specific question I asked :).
