Did you do a factory reset after firmware update - press recessed button back and hold till lights flash
Hi, thanks for your response.
Why would I want to do a factory reset after the January firmware update - what will that achieve (apart from making all my settings redundant that I'll have to spend ages setting up again?)
When you say factory reset - will that erase all my passwords etc? Presumably I'll have to set all those up again too? How likely is doing this going to fix my connection issues (they are wifi only and nothing happens to the blue light - the only way I know it's not working is yells from the kids and a very angry husband who has just lost his call to an important business client).
Has anyone done a factory resent and it's solved the problems that thye've had since this update? It was working brilliantly before the update (after having many dodgy updates at the start of its life, for which it got shelved and I used my old Hub 3 for a year until this penultimate update came and worked!!)
It is entirely up to you whether or not you do a factory reset however doing the reset clears out any cache/stored files/setting etc and gives a factory fresh installation of the updated software rather than installing it "on top" of the previous software.
This will obviously remove any settings/passwords etc that you have set up because it is restoring the hub back to factory setting, albeit with the new software and not the original software that it shipped with from the factory.
There is of course no guarantee that the factory reset will resolve your problem but at least you will be working from a "clean sheet" as far as the hub is concerned.
yes, I might give it a go - might not have any choice if this carries on. Thanks for explaining the possible benefits.
