When I started using the Home Hub 5 some years ago, it would regularly reboot every 14 days and I got used to that. Recently it has started rebooting every 2 to 4 days at completely random times of the day or night. In the case of the most recent example the relevant event log (which means nothing to me) is set out below. Is anybody able to advise what might be causing the problem. In all other respects the Hub is working perfectly.

assuming there is no noise on quiet line test have you tried the usual factory reset by pressing button on back and holding 20/30 secs until lights flash to see if that solves the problem
Thank you for responding.
Since posting my question, I have noticed that the Hub has updated its software today so that would presumably account for today's episode.
Having said that, the disconnecting every 2-4 days has been going on since the middle of February, so I may have to do a factory reset at some stage unless those disconnects could have been caused by unsuccessful attempts to update the software.
I also had problems recently with my hub 5 disconnecting when it felt like but received a software update to it on 28/2/19 which seems to have stabilized it. Could it be part of that?
Yes, it certainly could be like the problem you had. As the software has just updated, I will go into "wait and see" mode.
