Re: Automatic power save on hub 3 - does it actually happen?

Go to solution
Well, to quote Victor Meldrew "I don't believe it". Today it has started working, all by itself. I noticed straight away this morning that the lights were slightly dimmed, and sure enough when I switched on the PC they got brighter. They've never done that before.

I see the HomeHub was busy last night because my connection time is shown as just a few hours and I have switched from "fast" to "interleaved" operation since yesterday, although it is still using the same firmware version.

They're away from home for a couple of days, I'll ask them when they come back.

I have, today, received and installed the Hub 3 with the same results as described above. I hope the power saving will start working after some days. I can also pull the mains plug on the Hub 3.

Re: Automatic power save on hub 3 - does it actually happen?

Go to solution

Just to add my 2 penn'orth. I too installed Home Hub 3 yesterday and the automatic powersave is not working. Upon contacting the Helpline by phone (the chatline was useless, is this normal?) I was told that the firmware has been updated and the automatic powersave feature has been disabled. I was told that this is because there have been too many instances of the hub not coming back to life from the sleeping mode, when needed.

 

The guy apologised that the User Guide didn't reflect the new non-featured hub 3 and will pass it on.....

 

Being a sceptic (does it show?) I've no idea if this is true.
