Smart hub Lan connection issues



just switched to EE fibre connection 4 days ago, set up went smoothly but yesterday we started getting dropouts of all our wired devices on network, the wireless devices were unaffected.


initially, I thought it was isolated to a pc upstairs as i was getting the following error "Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings" but then realised it was every wired device, two other pcs, amazon fire tv, smart tv, and sky Q box.


the drop out lasts 5- 10 minutes then seems to fix its self, it has happened 6-7 times in the last 24 hours. I have restarted the router and if it continues will do a hard reset as a last resort.


wondered if this sounds like a faulty smart hub?

Re: Smart hub Lan connection issues

When this happens what does ipconfig /all say in the Ethernet section on your PCs?
