    Flashing green on sub 3.0 21st May 19 at 6:37 PM
    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.

    Epilepsy affects spelling/typing? Every day is a school day.

    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

    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]
