Powerline Adapters Keep Dropping Out

I have a Virgin Hub 3 and Trendnet Powerline Adapters and the Powerline drops out all the time and frequently needs resetting. 

I have always assumed this is a problem with the Powerline, but is it possible it’s a problem with the Hub? I know the Hub 3 is very unpopular with some people, so before I invest in new Powerline adapters, just wondering if the Hub 3 could be the problem in anyway?

Thanks for your help

Re: Powerline Adapters Keep Dropping Out

Powerlines rely on little to no interference and also being on the same ring main as each other.

Re: Powerline Adapters Keep Dropping Out

Funny you should post this, I had the same issue just today. 

 

I found a forum where a man had the same issue. He used an ethernet switch and attached that to one of the ports on his router, he then attached the Powerline to the ethernet switch. 

 

I did the same and it fixed the issue immediately. I couldn't even access the router settings today after rebooting the hub manually.
