BT HomeHub4 - frequent drops and reboots

Hi all,

BT sent us a new HomeHub 4 (to replace a dodgy HH2). Installed on 15th Aug and have experienced persistent frequent drop outs of the broadband connection ever since.

Is this normal for HH4 / part of settling in period or do I have a faulty HH?

The WAN section of the HH Log shows the following which corresponds to the broadband connection dropping:

The BOOT section of the HH log shows frequent reboots:

Pleased it worked for you. It's just using basic knowledge many problems are solved by a restart not just hubs. Pc's as well

For clarity/others it was the *reset* to factory defaults that you suggested that appears to have fixed it, not a restart.
