Red light bar

Joining in

So my virgin hub has been working fine for ages but all of a sudden a few days ago the light bar went red instead of white. no other lights or indicators just the red light bar. The internet seem about normal. wifi speed is what it usually is. the latency has gotten worse though. before with wired i was getting about 20-24 ping consistently when pinging the london AWS server. Not its much more varies with it going up into the 40's. upload speeds seem normal too. i checked all the cables and connections werent loose and made sure it wasnt overheating. ive done like 3 restarts. but everytime it keeps showing the same red light while most of its function seems normal.

Hi Kyzerii,

Thanks for posting and welcome to our community 😊

Sorry to hear you're having some issues with the hub, thank you for trying a reboot etc already.

This is something we'll need to arrange an engineer visit for. Before I can do this I'll need to confirm a few details, so I've popped you over a private message.


sorry for taking so long for the response. i have DM'd you now. Thanks for the reply.

Hi @Kyzerii 

Thanks so much for joining us on PM and allowing us to book a technician visit for the red light issue.  You can check the date and time via your online account.

There will be no charge for this visit unless:

The technician discovers that the fault or problem relates to your equipment
The technician discovers that the fault or problem relates to any system that we are not responsible for
The technician will confirm during their visit if any of these instances apply, and if so, a £25 charge will be applied to your account.
Please ensure there is someone over the age of 18 present at the time of the visit. If you need to change or cancel your appointment you can do this online or via the MyVM app by 4pm the day before the appointment.

Hey there. How can i check the visit info? i went to my online account and the only thing there about this sort of think was "orders an appointments" which was empty. Am i checking the wrong place?

Hi there @Kyzerii 

The visit should be showing in this section of your profile.
