Super hub 4 with Sky Q connection constantly dropping

I am having an issue with the connection between my new super hub 4 and my Sky Q box dropping and then will not reconnect for a day or so, or connecting and then dropping and then connecting and then dropping again every few minutes.

I also recently got the message on my tv screen from a sky mini box which said the router is not issuing ip addresses.

I’ve done the usual numerous hub reboots and reset of the Sky box connection but the problem persists.

i see other people appear to have had similar issues, is there a solution that can be applied.

Thanks

Apparently this is known issue and has been discussed on the Sky forums

One solution in that Sky post was to give the Sky box a fixed IP address, worth a try. By fixed, I mean fixed in device, not a pseudo fixed address by doing a reserved IP address in your router/hub.

Yes, looks like the best solution is a wired connection to the main Sky Q box, along with a static IP address (outside the Hub's DHCP scope).  The Sky users imply the mini's run from the main Sky Q via a separate "sky mesh" wifi ?
