Red light hub 3

Joining in

Have tried resetting the hub multiple times. I have left the hub off for a period to see if it would cool. The red light remains. Have called virgin only to be told there are no issues with the hub even though I'm getting very intermittent connections has been going on for a few weeks now 


Thanks for the update 😊 Glad to see the engineer has replaced this for you.

Please let us know if you need anything further, we're always happy to help.

I have the same problem with a solid red light on Hub 3. I have followed all of the Help actions and tests, power off/on, reset etc and also turned off overnight multiple times but still always getting the red light. The Hub is warm to touch, but not sure how warm is a problem. From the previous posts it sounds like a Hub fault? Please advise.

Hi nick25,

Thanks for your post, welcome to the Community Forums! Sorry to hear you're having some issues with your Hub.

I know you mentioned you've performed all the tests and things your end, but just to clarify, can you please confirm if the Hub is in a clear and open space? Can you please also let us know if you have performed a factory reset?

Thank you


Hi Beth,

Yes i have performed a factory reset as well as multiple power off's overnight, but the light is red immediately when it is turned back on. The Hub is at the end of a desk with plenty of space around it.
