My router isn’t playing ball no more. I have a wired home network that has all the things such as PS4, TVs, sky boxes and Cctv hooked up too and wireless devices are only iPads and phones. My home network was working just fine minus having to unplug the router and plug it back in when the lease for the IP address switches over so it stopped my sky boxes working. When I unplugged it my routers settings such as my own password and network name worked how it should.
Now when I unplug my router and plug it in it resets itself to factory and won’t work until I go through the setup process again, it kicks off all devices, it’s dropping the internet every day now and I’m having to reconnect things back to the internet. It’s a pain, does anyone have any ideas?
When you say your router you mean your Virgin Superhub...? If so then it does sound like you will have to call virgin and get a engineer out to have a look at the hub and replace it as it does sound like it has a issue.

What hub model is it? If a Hub3 try this. Do a pinhole reset to factory settings. Push in the pin on the back/side/bottom of the Hub with the end of a paperclip until you feel it at the “stop point” and hold for a "timed" 60 seconds do NOT restart the Hub after that. Your passwords/passphrase for both Hub and Wifi will revert to those printed on the Hub sticker on its base/side/drawer.
