Plusnet Hub One reboot loop

Over the past week my Plusnet Hub One router has developed a fault.  It will run fine for a few days then suddenly reboot itself.  It will come back up for a few minutes and then reboot again.  This happens at any time of day or night so does not coincide with heavy use or a large number of wireless clients.

I have checked the event log on the router and it appears to log a large number of "Reset button pressed" events before rebooting.  I can confirm that the reset button is not being pressed and there's nothing nearby which could exert pressure on the button.  The router is on a well ventilated window sill in a quiet part of the house.

To work-around the problem I turn off and unplug the router from power for 10 minutes.  After plugging it back in and powering up it remains stable a few days before this repeats.

The most recent occurrence from today's event log:

I used to use a TPlink router until a couple of weeks ago but discontinued it after that developed a separate fault.  I pressed this One Hub into service having had it for a couple of years.  It started up without fault and updated itself to the latest firmware on the 15th March.  Then last week around the 24th March it began presenting these symptoms, rebooting several times on Tuesday afternoon.  When the router is running stably I cannot see any other problems with it.

Here are all the devices normally connected to the router (host names and MACs have been changed).  Note I never connect anything to the USB or Ethernet ports.

2.4 GHz Wireless:A-iPhonef8:e9:4e:a0:nn:nn192.168.1.64

Please let me know if there is any further information I can give.

Re: Plusnet Hub One reboot loop

After 3 and a bit days of reliable work the router has started telling me it's having its reset button pushed, when it is not:

Does anyone else's do this?  I reckon I've got about another hour before the router enters its reboot loop so I'll complete a pre-emptive shutdown and restart shortly to avoid disruption later.

I'd appreciate any input anyone has as both here and the Plusnet Support Twitter account is apparently swamped.

Cheers all.

Re: Plusnet Hub One reboot loop

My PlusNet Hub One finally died overnight.  It's caught in the same reboot loop as detailed above but this time a power-cycle didn't resolve it.  I got about 3.5 days uptime and around 22:£0 last night the rebooting started.

I've pressed an aged TP-Link router into service and can tether to my mobile but would appreciate some feedback from any Plusnet staff who might be reading this forum.  I wouldn't normally use a forum or Twitter but have been sent this way by the Plusnet support page.

Re: Plusnet Hub One reboot loop

Fix

Ticket was picked up by Plusnet support.  A new Plusnet router was dispatched and has been working okay for the time being.
