A faulty HUB 3 is looking very possible. VM may go round in circles with this as it is a fault that can not see or diagnose remotely. But if the Hub 3 was the fail.  Got a duff 3 amp fuse to hand ! 

yeah i managed to get another laptop with an ethernet to test so could run my pc on my old ethernet cable and the laptop on a new ethernet and was getting the same result.

Knowing my luck they will just stick a fuse back in. Going to have to get on the phone again by the look of it.

Hey Morty84,

Welcome to the community and thanks for taking the time to post here on the forums.
I’m sorry to hear of the issues that you’re having with your connection at the moment, I have ran some checks on the system and it has advised that we would need to arrange a technician visit to investigate your issues and possibly replace your router.  I can arrange the appointment 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.
Kind Regards,
Steven_L
