Hi, I am using VM Hub 3 and since yesterday I am not able to access the internet via Ethernet though WiFi works perfectly fine.
I have tried different Ethernet cables and even tried connecting it to my Smart TV which gave me the error "failed to obtain IP address"
At first I thought my PC was at fault but when I tried connecting to my other devices via Ethernet (even with different cables) it just returned the same message.
I have tried restarting and rebooting my VM Hub multiple times and still no luck. I can't even get through to VMs customer service and I'm not quite sure what to do as my PC doesn't have WiFi so I'm unable to access to the internet.
EDIT; Ethernet actually works for a minute or two after I restart my VM Hub but then it returns the same error message and I can't use it anymore.
Are you getting a link light on either the hub or the device that you connect to it when you plug the cable in? If not, it could be that the Ethernet ports on the hub have failed..i read somewhere that it was a known issue with the hub2 - no idea if it also affects the hub 3 tho..
Have you tried any of the other ports? Are they all broken?
I've carried out the factory reset as you suggested but still I have the same problem.
Once the hub reboots I am able to use the internet via Ethernet for couple of minutes and then it just stops working. I'm not even able to login into the Hub3 by going to 192.168.0.1 but on my phone I am able to log into the Hub3
The ports aren't broken if when restarted it works for couple of minutes and then it stops working... 😒🤔
Aren’t they? If my boiler started up for a couple of minutes and then switched off, every time, I’d probably think there was an issue with it...
Do you get a link light when you connect a device to the hub? What about in different ports? What about with a different cable?
A quick google search seems to indicate that you’re not the only person to have experienced this, or similar, issue... could be worth a browse through those - see if your symptoms line up with what other people were reporting, and see what they did to resolve...
