Had a problem with sub and it's installed with sub 3, now at least internet and WiFi is working. For 2 days now the green WiFi light is flashing.

Is this normal?

Thanks

    I'm assuming USB 3.0 but even if that's correct the question is still gibberish.

    Im guessing you mean HUB rather than SUB ??


    If so, then the green light should not be continually flashing no ..
    That indicates it is scanning for a WPS connection .. That is not good security wise ..


    I would call VM because talking you through it on here is going to be difficult at best


    Edit : from the link you just posted yourself ...

    Seems you have nothing to worry about ;)

    That's for either a Super Hub 2ac or Super Hub 2, not for a Hub 3.0 which, based on their link, is what the OP has.

    Looking on the Virgin Media Community forum, this appears to be a not uncommon problem. Here's one (unhelpful) thread:

    That was quoted directly from the link the OP posted. and is entitled Hub3 .. How do you come to the conclusion that it is anything other than that ?

    The text you quoted isn't from the part of the web page that relates to Hub3, it's actually from sections headed Super Hub 2ac, Super Hub 2 and Super Hub. And it's definitely not normal behaviour for a Hub3, but...



    As it happens, mine has been flashing for about 2 months now with no ill effects, I always meant to check with the Virgin forum but never quite got round to it, and now I don't need to!

    I think the page covers all models of hub, but the link the OP gave was direct to the sub heading for Hub3. Here's the link again, if you scroll up a bit you can see all the flavours of hub are listed. [Actually, I don't think the OP has changed the link, it's exactly the same as mine]
