    Evening all,

    After a bit of assistance. Used to work in IT a while back ut this issue has really stumped me.

    I have two BT Home Hub 5s.

    One of them is the master Hub in my lounge. This has a long Ethernet cable running too my summer house where my 'office' (man cave) is.

    For a long time I ran my PC off this ethernet with no issues. But when i got my second router through i decided to daisy chain them so i could use wireless devices down in the summer house also.

    I found a guide on how to do it which essentially confirmed what I thought.

    Plugged in my slave hub direct to my PC, logged in, turned off DHCP and set it on a static IP of

    Plugged it in to the master hub and boom, working.

    It worked solidly for about a month. I changed nothing in this time when suddenly it started dropping wired connections every 5 - 30 minutes. No time gap was the same.

    I also noted that the wireless connections were now disconnected 100% of the time.

    I logged into my slave again to double check my settings. After a minute or two of looking at the settings, I would lose connection to the hub, but not be able to reconnect to it without a hard reset.

    Totally baffled.. anyone got any ideas?
