      I wonder if you could change the DNS Server settings on your computer then?

      Could you change your Wireless to use OpenDNS or Google DNS to see if this helps?

      Open DNS:
      208.67.222.222
      208.67.220.220

      Google DNS:
      8.8.8.8
      8.8.4.4

      Hi Scubbie ,
      Sorry for the delay in answering , yes the Laptop is Windows 8 .
      The firmware version of the new hub is 1.15i.2202.R .

      Thanks. Again you to are on the latest firmware.

      Have you too tried reseting the Sky Hub and changing the DNS servers on your computer?

      Hi Scubbie ,
      After much pulling out of hair , unplugging of Sky Hub , plugging in of old netgear one , swearing and cursing it seems to have cleared itself (for the time being.....) , thanks again for your help and we'll wait and see if it re-occurs......
