This morning I had a power cut. I had my hub 4 on modem mode and saw that the light on my router was red.
The hub 4 just has a constant white light - no flashing to show that its booting up or anything. I can't access the router settings via 192.168.100.1 and holding depressing the pinhole for 60 seconds does nothing - the light stays on at all times.
I've unplugged it from the socket for 10 minutes, removed all ethernet cables, unplugged the coax cable but still all the same.
Does this mean my hub 4 is totally gone? I've got an engineer booked for Thursday - do they carry replacements or do I need to arrange this separately?
When I called them up, I didn't specifically request for a new hub since I wasn't sure that was the issue, they just said they'd send a technician over. Would they still have some with them? Sorry if it's a stupid question, just gotta make sure as I can't go any more days without Internet due to WFH 😬
Generally all engineers carry replacement hubs, in this case there should be a description of the issue, that should be hub not responding or working so engineer would likely be prepared for this,
I've had an installation technician offer to go back to the yard and get me a Hub 4 when I asked about having one as I planned to upgrade to Gig1 previously but I said not to worry as the upgrade would prompt one to be sent anyway.
