Received a new router hub today and it has a permanent red light. Searched online and it states that the router may be overheating.
Not sure how thats possible if its brand new out of the box? Have tried cooling it down and checking all cable connections. Has anyone else encountered this with a new install?

Welcome to the community and thanks for taking the time to post your issue on the forums.
I’m sorry to hear of the issues that you’re having with your brand new hub, this shouldn't be happening especially with a new hub.
Is the hub hot to the touch and are you using the hub un router mode or modem mode?
How long have you had the hub plugged in and has it been in a well ventilated area since it was plugged in?
Hub is cold on all sides.
Hub is currently on router mode.
It has been plugged in for around 40 minutes, in that time I have attempted a couple of reboots though.
Area is well vented, have even had the doors open to allow a colder breeze through but haven't had any luck.
Thanks for coming back to me and for answering all of my questions, we would need to get the hub replaced but this can only be done via a technician visit, I can arrange that from here but would need to confirm a few details via a private message, that I will drop over in a moment. Please look out for the private message and we can get started.
Thanks for confirming your details via private message @lliamed.
