Virgin Media Flashing Green Light (And Variants)

We’ve all been there: there’s a Virgin Media Flashing Green Light on your router, and you have no internet.

It can be pretty frustrating when your internet goes down, and you are met with nothing more than a flashing green light. I know the frustration that this can cause and hours of sitting on the phone and searching the internet for a solution. 

If you are using a Virgin Media Hub 3, then the chances are good that you are seeing this flashing green light because of a connection timeout between you and Virgin Media’s fibre exchange. This means that there isn’t really much you can do from your end, other than just wait for it to come back online again.

The next time it happens be sure to contact Virgin while it is ongoing so that they can diagnose the current state of your connection. If you are experiencing other issues then be sure to read on and see what other issues you might be having due to a flashing green light.

Flashing Green WiFi

When the Hub is on, your WiFi should be as well, but if you are seeing a green power light that is flashing and your WiFi light is green then your WiFi is not working.

Check your network settings to see if your router needs to be reconfigured. A loose connection can be anywhere in the house and is not always caused by the heating or air-conditioning system.

Make sure the white cable is plugged firmly into the hub and at the Virgin Media socket on the wall.

Your WiFi light will flash green when your router is trying to find WPS security credentials. This means that your network is ready to accept a new WPS device. If you didn’t press the button, someone in the house might have activated it through your router’s admin page. Simply wait a few minutes, and it will time out on its own.

A flashing green light can be a severe problem for some people. You may think this is because your WiFi is dead, but this isn’t necessarily true. Sometimes, it’s just a light that has been turned off accidentally.

If this is the case, the light should turn itself back on. If it doesn’t, then you should take action. You should first try to restart the router. If that doesn’t work, you may need to contact Virgin Media customer services to fix the issue.
