General query regarding rebooting.

Recently set up a BT Hub 6 thanks to the excellent info in posts on that topic.

In response to a question regarding saving settings it was mentioned the Hub reboots every 2 weeks.

Do all. hubs reboot that often and if so what happens if you are using it at the time is your connection dropped ?

Apologies if I have misunderstood something as it's a topic I know little or nothing about.

Fix
There was a time (think it might have been a bug) where this was the case for some reason.
However I believe it isn't the case anymore and mine doesn't do that.

Sorry to disagree, on a Smarthub 6 Business Hub at least. I would be interested  to hear if the residential version does do it any more.

These are extracts from my Technical Log Information and Event Logs. Notice that they read from the bottom up.

Interesting post.

Not sure if I have saved the setting correctly......if not and it reboots I will soon be finding out if,

a) It does reboot every few weeks and

b) if the settings have been saved correctly.

I think it is possible to check if it setting have been saved correctly but as everything is working ok I do not want to mess around with it, for me it's the land of the unknown.

Re: General query regarding rebooting.

If you look at the log you will note that it does a soft reset every two weeks and a few minutes. I caught it once and I've a feeling that it might not of lost sync in the process (I think that the blue light was on but I had no internet). I could of course be wrong and I caught it just as it was coming back on line, Consequently you might not know until you have a power reset but my guess would be that it saved OK or it would have locked you out by now.
