Hi all,

My parents just purchased 2 secondhand Acer Aspire 5750g laptops which I’ve given new SSDs and fresh installs of Windows 10.

At home they have a BT Homehub which they connect their iPhones, iPads, laptops and Amazon Echo to.

When connecting to the hub using one of the laptops via either Ethernet or WiFi, the hub loses connection to the internet. If I disable the network adapters the connection restores, but will immediately fail if I enable them.

Although the machines are quite old the drivers are up to date and I am able to use them on my network at home without fault.

I’ve tried factory resetting the hub and laptops but the problem is still occurring and occurs regardless of the number of devices connected to the hub.

The hub’s firmware is updated automatically and is up to date.

If the wireless adapter is enabled, the issue occurs regardless as to whether the laptop is connected to the hub or not, even if the WiFi is set to off (but the adapter isn’t disabled) the hub falls over.

I’ve attached the first page of the hub’s log in the hope someone knowledgable will spot something obvious.

Thanks in advance,

Tom

Is that laptop setup to get a dynamic IP address and not static IP. If not there may be an ip conflict.

It should be but their support wasn’t any help! I took the laptop back to their house last night with the new router and oddly the issue had resolved itself!
