We are currently experiencing a problem with our WiFi Hub. several times per week our devices disconnect from the hub for no reason. Generally hub still solid white light and upon checking router settings through browser there has been no loss of internet connection.
We have two options when this happens:
1) Reset hub and everything is back up and running once booted.
2) Wait........ normally within 10-20 mins everything connects back up.
I haven't done a huge amount of troubleshooting as yet. Wanted to see if any community users had the same issue. We've had our hub since the middle of December and had this issue from day one. However it seems to be getting more frequent as time goes on.
Any ideas anyone?

I have managed a little more troubleshotting this morning when all our 'wired' devices disconnected but 'wireless' devices stayed connected.
1) Double check connections - None of the wired devices could ping the router but wireless could.
2) Check router status with a wireless device by logging into dashboard. Router suggests 2 wired devices still connected, however upon ping they are definitely not.
3) Reset router and all back to normal.
Once again I must note that all our wired devices are currently connected through Homeplugs as they are away from the router. This is a setup that worked excellently with our old BT router. No other network changes have taken place since swapping to TalkTalk.
Wired devices disconnect more often than wireless but we do sometimes lose all at once.

Thank you very much for your reply.
Both wireless and wired connected devices lose connection. Wired devices are through Homeplugs and I haven't had chance to test a non Homeplug connected direct ethernet wired device as the fault is intermittent.
However they don't all always disconnect. Sometimes just wired devices. Sometimes just one wireless device (such as TV which is still in wireless range). It's difficult to do any testing as it's an intermittent fault.

Do you have any devices connected 'wired', if so, do they also lose connection when this happens ?
What make of router do you have ?
