Virgin hub 3 solid red light and.inconsistent speeds

Tuning in

Hi all

As per the title I have an issue with a solid red light on our hub 3.

It appears to be the source of intermittent drops in download speeds. I often pick up results of approx 150 Mbps then randomly have spells when it drops to around 10Mbps. I'm also experiencing messages from windows WiFi manager stating I'm ”connected ” but ”no internet".

The hub doesn't feel particularly warm and has a good air flow around it. I have tried powering off, pin hole resets etc but the intermittent performance and solid red light remains.

Can anybody advise or assist?


Many thanks

Red LED is possibly overheating and the hub will need replacing, if has probably nothing to do with your other issue, but until the hub is replace that issue cannot be persuaded. Please do a pin hole reset on the hub and report back the LED colour when it comes back up.
