Re: Orange light on intermittent router

You've tried a pinhole reset?

May also be worth posting the hub's status data: Connect to the hub by clicking on this link http://192.168.0.1/  That should pull up the log in page for the hub.  But don't log in, just click on the link "Check router status"  That'll bring up a window with five tabs.  Open the Downstream tab.  Select all the text (Ctrl-A if using a keyboard), copy it (Ctrl-C), then paste it (Ctrl-V) into a reply here as text, not screenshots.  Post that, do the same for the Upstream and Network log.  You'll get an error message when you post the Network log, just click on "post" a second time.

Then we can check for any obvious problems with power, noise or error counts.

Re: Orange light on intermittent router

Huge error counts and a stinky network log suggest a technician may be needed, the orange light may be related, it may be a separate problem.  I've flagged your post for the forum staff to advise on next steps.

Re: Orange light on intermittent router

Thanks for your post and for reaching out to the Community Forums, Martincort,

 

Sorry that you have been having broadband connections issues. I have run some remote diagnostics into your connection and it is indicating that you may be impacted by a local area fault ref#'F008484883. The estimated fix time for this is 12 FEB 2021 10:00.

This should not have anything to do with the lights being orange. The isn't an orange light, the closest colour it could be is red https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-media-no-wifi-connection-hub3

If that is the case, check that you are following the guidelines regarding the hub's placement, but if you still need help let us know.

 

Cheers,

Corey C

Re: Orange light on intermittent router

Hi Corey ,

no , it’s orange as others on this community have listed previously. And being an led it cannot show a wrong colour due to age .

Re: Orange light on intermittent router

Thanks for replying, Martin,

 

The only diagnostic flow I can follow is red, as orange is not listed as a colour the hub is able to show. Have you been able to follow the guide here? Did any of it work or are you still needing help? It might need replacing otherwise.

 

Cheers,

Corey C

Re: Orange light on intermittent router

Maybe its "yellow" then ?  Can look orange in some lights to some eyes!

Re: Orange light on intermittent router

It could be, jbrennand, yellow does mean it could be a WFI issue but if rebooting hasn't fixed it. I'll follow the flow for a red light which might be that it needs replacing. Not that this will improve the connection issues the OP is making since that is linked to the outage, but I don't want the OP to be with a possibly overheating hub. @Martincort, let me know how you get on and if you need further help.

 

Cheers,

Corey C

Re: Orange light on intermittent router

Hi Corey ,

definitely orange on the led , it is a little on the warm side but I’m not sure how warm it should be . Definitely warmer than other routers I come across whilst working.
