Poor network performance

Joining in

My hub 3.0 is displaying a red light constantly and the WiFi performance is very poor, we have tried rebooting the router multiple times, however this has had no effect. The router is in a well ventilated area and is not hot to the touch so I don’t think it’s overheating. 

We have tried calling for support, however we have just been sent pods which don’t make any difference to the network as the router can’t even detect the devices. Has anyone else had similar issues and would know how to resolve it?

Hey Michelle32a, thank you for reaching out and a warm welcome to the community I am so sorry to hear about this.

Let me send you a PM and we can look into this, but in the meanwhile please try these steps;

• Turn the power switch off on the back of the Hub.

• Ensure the Hub is upright, in a well-ventilated location, and, if at all possible, out of direct sunlight.

• Then use the power switch to turn the unit back on. The Hub should now operate normally. Thanks

New around here?

Hello there, please can you just send an engineer. I’m really struggling to get it sorted. I work from home and it’s driving me crazy it’s so slow! 

Some times they can do it romotely as a person can take a few days depending on when they have someone for the area


What is the issue are u getting any service?? on vm hub ??

I’m happy to wait as I know my router has a problem. The light on it is always red. I’m sick of asking for help. On the phone they always start at the beginning… I’ve tried everything and now I’m at the end of my tether. Think I’ll just leave VM. Shame after 25 years but it’s the worst it’s ever been. Working from home is a nightmare. The apps say no problems in my area or with my connection but the speed is dreadful. I know we have a problem. The hubs have not helped at all. Please send an engineer. 🙏

What is ur mobile signal like as some mobile provider have good unlimited deals
