I have the same issue. The Box is behaving a lot like Windows XP did with its "Limited and No Connectivety Issue".
When this happened in XP the operating system can not maintain the automatic IP and DNS settings. Basically lost its way to the Ethernet port I pick that is the issue the box has. Some thing is causing it to lose this ability. With XP a few restarts or unplugging the equipment would bring around a temporary fix. However manually configuring the IP and DNS was more permanent.

Sounds like the issue I posted yesterday is very similar. Hopefully Vodafone will provide a solution soon.

In my case the instability began when we upgraded the Speeds. I wonder if the Vodafone TV was designed and optomised for the 100MB and below connection. It is not currently managing the higher speeds and heavy user scenario.
Pretty sure it is fixable with software updates rather than nit picking peoples premise equipment.

Hadn't thought of that. I'll try mine in a Netgear router with max speed of 90, see if that makes a difference. Would love a response from Vodafone, however.

Don't think the speed is an issue, more like delivery of content over your connection in your area is being interrupted somehow.
I'm on VF Gigabit and my VFTV is consistently allocated from 200 - 300MB via the Ultrahub on Ethernet (5M of Cat-6 cable) while streaming content at 1080p.
However, if you are not connecting to VFTV from modem via Ethernet, but via WiFi, then there may be other factors impacting your speeds, like kitchen whiteware (FF, microwave, stove), electrical wiring or water pipes close by, steel reinforcing, steel framing, or other embeded metal, cordless phones on the same WIFI frequency, wireless capable printers, even TVs can impact on WIFI connections.
And, Sagemcom uses a flavour of Linux for the VFTV Operating System.
