Losing WAN connection to hub between 11:45ish and 17:45ish every day
As the title says - I'm consistently losing the WAN connection to my Superhub 2 between 11:45ish and 17:45ish every day (it's happened three days running so far). It's weird!
There are no local outages on the status page each time it happens. I've (obviously) tried rebooting, powering down the hub etc. to no avail. The connection has come back of its own accord in the early evening.
Just to be clear - it's not a wifi issue - I'm running the hub in modem mode, with a DLink router and Devolo homeplug connections. I've also tried switching the hub back to router mode, with a RJ45 connection directly, but also no connection.
During this disconnection, the lights on the hub cycle through blinking green arrow and flashing blue light above that.
Any ideas? The rep on the second call to customer service suggested a new superhub, presumably an SH3, so that should be arriving soon - but this doesn't sound like a local problem to me, rather an intermittent network availability issue. And in a house of avid gamers, I don't want to bring a fresh hell of off-the-scale pings that seem to be associated with the SH3.
So I've booked an engineer for tomorrow afternoon - daresay the demonstrator effect will happen and there will be a rock solid signal then...

OK, very helpful engineer came yesterday and checked the signal level, which was slightly low, so adjusted that. He thought the signal drop-out might have been due to a combination of factors, including the SH2, but of course it was behaving itself during his visit...
He also commissioned the Superhub 3 which had arrived in the meantime . Firmware is 608, so I'm hoping the ping won't become a problem!
Here's the before and after BQM - average and minimum ping seems to have dropped, but max ping gone up slightly:
