Apologies I wasn't trying to "jump the queue" but trying to give as much information as possible. AS stated I will try a reboot tonight after finishing work but the devices didn't connect even when the new router was initially connected.
Hi I ill reboot a bit later after I finish working. . . . I have tried to connect both wired and wifi with the PS4. . . the Blink is only wifi. . . . but as I said, it appears that the router cannot automatically allocate IP addresses via DHCP (thats what I looked up as I don't understand it). .
Once I have re-booted I will see what happens but really it all worked before until about three weeks ago when it started dropping devices, and even with the new router/hub, I cannot get everything back again.
Can I ask you then to please try the Pin Hole Reset at a convenient time for you? As it does essentially take your hub back to factory settings, I do need to pre-advise you would need to re-connect your devices to the WiFi.
Thank you for coming back to us, a pin reset can resolve a lot of issues including software problems, please push a pin in the reset hole at the back of the router while the router is on, hold in for a timed 1 minute, please do not reboot during or after and allow around 10 minutes to settle down afterwards.
