UIltra hub - can't access admin panel / samba / dhcp

My Ultra Hub is driving me insane.

 

When I reboot I can get the the admin protal, but randomlky between a few minutes to a few days later it goes offline. Samba and DHCP for the attached USB drive also go offline at the same time.

 

Any ideas? 

 

Alternatively is htere a way to set up this Ultra Hub as bridging, so I can ditch it and buy a decent wifi router?

Items tried:

* Moving DNS to a different device on network. It works great, but doesn't solve the initial issue of the admin portal failing

* Reducing DHCP timouts - no change

* Moving DHCP server to another device. Works great, but doens't fix the admin portal

* Disabling samba and USB devices - no change

 

I can't reflash firmware as it is currently a broken link on the vodafone support site.

 

 

Any other ideas?

I am starting to wonder if it's a caching issue somewhere on the device. A firmware refresh would fix this... does anyone know where to the Ultra Hub firmware as the links in the Voda support site are broken.

So I've done a factory reset, and the same symptoms are happening again.

I may I have found the problem. If I unplug the USB hard drive from the router it appears to bring back the admin panel.

 

This is after months of this hard drive working fine, and the drive has no errors etc.

 

I think I finally give up on the Ultra Hub. It's interface is too limited and it's just too buggy and frustrating.

 

Can someone from Vodafone let me know if bridging can be enabled on this if I go buy a decent router to pair with it?
