We're now on our third Smart Hub 2 due to hardware issues.
Hub #1 became unresponsive and needed a power cycle. It was only once but I reported the issue and support arranged a new hub for me.
Hub #2 has in the space of 2 weeks turned unresponsive 3 times, and restarted itself 15 times, as evidenced by messages in the technical log such as
|23 Aug. 5G WiFi auto selected channel 36 Bandwidth:80M(Reason:boot)|
|23 Aug. 5G WiFi scan(Reason:boot)|
|23 Aug. 2.4G WiFi auto selected channel 6 Bandwidth:20M(Reason:boot)|
|23 Aug. 2.4G WiFi scan(Reason:boot)|
Hub #3 just arrived yesterday and has already restarted itself once. I say restart but it's more like a power reset, as the log never shows "System restart". Maybe it's a one off but it feels like nothing has changed.
I would just give up and use our own router but then we lose the Hybrid Connect. I'm at my wit's end. Is it just me or is this how the hardware is?
Edit: the new one rebooted itself for the second time in 24h
I have a Google Nest Hub (1st gen) that have been working fine until recently. It restarts itself randomly, usually when I give it a command like play XXX on Spotify (other commands too), but not every time.
What can be wrong?
What this could mean is that the router every 15 days reboots and checks for OTA (Over-the-Air) firmware updates. It's constantly checking for updates during the 15 days.
These are the issues we've had with the new replacement hub and replacement power supply.

I don't know how realistic it is to have three hubs with the same issues so I'm wondering if it has an issue with our configuration. All I change when I receive a hub is turn off the firewall, port forward all ports to one of the multiple static IP addresses, turn off smart setup.
I'm going to switch to a third party router to show that other equipment runs fine in our environment.
Methods to fix-
Method 1. Soft reset the TV
A soft reset shuts the TV down completely and reboots it, rather than placing it just into standby mode. This can solve issues that you may be having with apps. There are two ways to soft reset your TV.
Press and hold the power button on your remote until the TV turns off and on again. This should only take about 5 seconds.
Unplug your TV from the power socket for 30 seconds, and then plug it back in.
Method 2. Check for software updates
Software updates provide bug and security fixes for your device. Keep your TV’s software up to date to prevent errors.
Step 1. Press the Home button and navigate to the Settings.
