I have a solid white power light and a constant solid green wifi light for long periods. Wifi works but is painfully slow and the signal is weak throughout the house. I've had a hub upgrade (to a newer model) but this hasn't really fixed it) I also get intermittent flashing every now and again when wifi drops totally. I rarely get just a solid white light. What's confusing me most is wifi working with a solid green wifi light. There's nothing on any forum's or online help that explains that this is a problem or not. HELP!
the solid green wifi light is a bug in the hub3 - a reboot might cure it or not - black tape over it will
it has nothing to do with poor wifi - do you have wired connections - do they drop if the wifi drops if so you are losing connection - if not its just poor wifi - the hub is nothing special as a wifi device - if wifi is important there are many solutions from a 3rd part router to mesh systems to name just 2
but post some levels and lets see if the connection is ok
log into hub3 - 192.168.0.1 [or 192.168.100.1 if in modem mode] - DON'T SIGN IN, click - click router status [centre of screen] - and post the downstream and upstream figures - to see those press on the grey buttons/boxes labelled - upstream - downstream
all sorts of ways to run a lan cable - obviously have no idea of your house layout but i fould the easiest was out through outside wall - route to where i want to go to and back in through outside wall - switc on inside and i have lan connections
powerline adaptors is another way but [imo] they are not that good
It's not that it's not advisable, it's just an annoying extra (usually) unnecessary step. The very first time you access the Hub's interface it does indeed require you to log in with the default password printed on the bottom, I believe it then asks you to set the default language and in might insist that you set your own password.
Once you do all this, then subsequent connections to the web interface will give you the 'check status' option without needing to log in - it';s just the first time that's different.
