Hub 4 keeps resetting wi fi defaults

Moved to 1G broadband a month ago and got a Hub 4.

After getting it all working I changed the default wi fi SSID and password as all the devices we have are set up to use the wi fi logon details we had on the previous router.

But in the last month the Hub 4 router has rebooted itself (on its own) 5 times and taken the router back to its default SSID and password.

At first of course we just think wi fi has gone down so switch the router on and off.

But when we then try to connect a device we find that our "new" SSID is NOT listed but the default SSID name IS listed.

I then have to logon to the router and change the SSID and password.

If I am in the house then this is of course fairly easy for me to do, but if I am out the house none of my family would have any idea how to change the SSID so they are stuck with it till I come home. 

Any reason our Hub 4 is doing this as it is rather annoying.

Re: Hub 4 keeps resetting wi fi defaults

It shouldn't do that (obviously).  Highly possible that the hub has a hardware fault and will need replacing.  

I'll mark your post for staff to advise and if need be book a technician for you.

Re: Hub 4 keeps resetting wi fi defaults

Hey @guilbert,

 

Thanks for taking the time to post your hub 4 issues on our forums.

 

As @Andrew-G advised, we will need to send out a new hub to get this issue resolved.

 

I need to confirm a few details before we can send the hub out to you, I will send over a private message now, so that we can confirm the required information.

 

Regards,

Steven_L
