Not really, the VM IP address is “sticky’” and normally does not change.

Sorry to hear that this has happened to your daughter @misscurly.

 

As @Tudor said that there is not really much that can be done, the only thing that you could do to try and make the hub assign a new address is to do a factory reset of the hub but this isnt guaranteed to work but could be worth a try.

 

The way to do the reset can be found here and it says 10 seconds on the link, please do it for 30 to 45 seconds instead of 10.

 

Regards
