IP Address Issues

I am having daily issues with my Hub 3.0 not allowing various devices to connect and returning an error

"WiFi" doesn't have a valid IP configuration Not fixed
Investigate router or broadband modem issues Failed
Reset the "WiFi" adapter Completed

This even happens whilst using my laptop even after it has been connected for some time. I have tried resetting, restarting, forgetting the network on my laptop and starting again. Was working fine last night, this morning got that message again and am now connected via my range extender...even though I am sitting 3 feet from the Hub!

16 devices are on the list of connections

Any help much appreciated, never had this issue with Sky!

Re: IP Address Issues

Look at getting your own router with 1Gb ports and use hub in modem mode.

Re: IP Address Issues

When some devices will not connect, are others that are connected ok working? Is it only WiFi devices or are Ethernet cabled device suffering the same fate?

Re: IP Address Issues

I don't connect with ethernet cables.

Devices that remain on and connected all of the time tend to work. Laptop and phone for example often connect but get the error message

"WiFi" doesn't have a valid IP configuration

This has happened whilst using my laptop when suddenly the internet is unavailable and this is the reason given.
