Hoping someone can help me as I'm pulling my hair out with my broadband!
For the past 3 days the internet connection seems to drop out from about 2pm for hours on end. I can connect wirelessly to the router from different devices but none can access any web pages etc. Have a white solid light on my Hub 3 as expected. Have restarted and reset the hub countless times but still no joy!
Called the call centre and they took me through the whole reset, reboot process but still the same. They were supposed to call back today but didn't and now they're closed due to COVID19.
I need the internet to enable me to work from home and I'm not getting anywhere!
check that all the cables are tight on the back of the hub, check there is not other connectors there like a small metal box that has attenuator on it, if there is remove it, trace the cable back from the hub to the entry point and check no damage is on the cable and all other connections are as tight as possible, if it persists you will have to use live chat to book a visit from a service tech.

Have you checked whether you can still connect to the Net on an ethernet cabled connected device? If not - try it. If it connects, then you have a wifi interference problem.
If not, set up a free “Broadband Quality Monitor” to continually monitor the state of your connection and record any network dropouts - it will thus allow you to differentiate between those and simple wifi dropouts. It does it 24/7/365 and it keeps a visual record of any/all of your network disconnections, useful data to have to match to the Network logs (in your Hub settings) and also in discussions with VM. Make sure you uncheck the “ignore ping from WAN side” box in the settings if you see a wall of "red" - note it will take an hour or two to start seeing a sensible picture.
