Hi Guys, LONG story, but I've been put in charge of 15 addresses who have just had Virgin connected, they're all running the Superhubs and they're all on R36 firmware (Hardware version 2.0)

To make my life considerably easier, I have enabled the remote management feature in the hopes I can just leave and never come back, but after 24 hours of being online, all of the superhubs have become unavailable remotley. I added a widget to my Android phone so I could watch them "fall off" and sure enough, over the period of 18-24 hours they all vanish at differing times (even though they're literally neighbouring addresses in a block of flats.

There seems to be no reason, so I have come across today and initially I cannot connect (through wifi), typing in 192.168.0.1 just times out, but a quick unplug and plug back in means everything is up and running again.

Does anyone have any ideas?, I cannot believe that I need to drive 20 miles each 24 hours to simply unplug a device?.

HELP.......lol

Ps, when I arrive, the Internet is still working on all, I just cannot access the hub.

EDIT - Well, didn't get too long, one that I rebooted at 11:14 died at 14:44.....Is that normal? I must be missing something.

Look at this screen shot, all vanishing with no more remote management...

Ah, but I am not with Virgin at home, so how would I direct that Page to the umpteen ip addresses of all the hubs remotely?

Cheers

The customers are unreliable, I have struggled with them to turn on and off in order to reconnect, so it needs to be the initial setup so it reboots automatically or will allow me to remote into it.

I've got an idea which might help. You could buy some of those timer plugs that automatically switch the leccy on and off and plug in the superhubs to those. Then all you have to do is simply set the switch for the power to go off and on once a day, maybe 3am in the morning or whatever time suits.

That's all I got mate! :smashin:

One more thing, you might also have a faulty router so it's worth getting one replaced to see if it stops the freezing/rebooting. Virgin are usually good at replacing kit as it's easier for them to just ship you out a new router instead of having you call every other day. Best to raise this through the Virgin forums, they are UK based and know what they're talking about so they will be able to diagnose any power level problems in the first instance.

Cheers Dodgy, I can rule out a hardware issue as it's 15 hubs, even I am not THAT unlucky (still waiting on the lottery win though... LOL) so I think it's got to be down to Virgin themselves to sort, I'll stick a call in. Thanks for the thoughts though, just being a Virgin Virgin I didn't like too think that I missed something.

Before you stick a call in, try posting on the Virgin forums here. The support guys there know what they're talking about and will be able to check your power levels and local UBR loads. Might possibly be the cable has been damaged that comes into the block of flats.

If you call, chances are that you'll get through to someone in India who doesn't talk English and will read the script asking you to reboot a gazillion times.
