Virgin Media Hub 4 Lights and Their Meanings

Here are some explanations that will help you understand how to fix your internet when the lights are a specific colour. You can tell what’s going on by looking at the coloured lights on your Hub.

Solid White

It is also the white power light of your Virgin Media Hub that appears when you turn the hub on for the first time.

Red Light

If the Hub is on, but the red light is on, you have a problem with your connections. Be sure to tighten the connection between the power supply and the Hub. It is important to ensure that the white coax cable from Virgin Media’s wall sockets is securely connected to the Hub as well.

Dim White Light

A dimmed white light on the Hub indicates that everything is fine and that the Hub is working normally. Therefore, there is no need to call support or do anything else. It is good to have a dim white light on your Virgin Media Hub because it means that everything is working as it should.

Green Light

The Hub flashes green slowly if it is downloading a software update. The Hub will need to be restarted after the update has been downloaded and installed.

Blue Light

When you press the WPS button on the back of the Hub, the light ring will flash blue gently for 2 minutes. This is your VirginMedia router’s way of showing you that a connection is being attempted.

When the WPS connection is successful on your Virgin Media router, the light ring will stay solid blue for 20 seconds. If the light ring flashes rapidly, it indicates that the WPS connection was unsuccessful and you should try again.

Flashing White

This indicates that the Virgin Media Hub is powering up and will be ready in 5 minutes.

Slow and unresponsive internet

Your internet has problems if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.

  1. Constantly dropping WiFi connectivity
  2. The latency is poor and there is lag
  3. Connected devices don’t work with the internet
  4. A black spot or dead zone on WiFi.

Understanding Your Router Lights

Your Hub 4 has four lights and the configuration that they represent on your hub shows you exactly what is going on with your current network status. Despite occasional problems, Virgin Media has deployed these hub units because they are easy to use and relatively reliable.

A router’s light configuration is key to understanding what is going on with your Wi-Fi, internet, Ethernet and power.
