Sorry I didn't find the root of the problem but ever since I swapped out the WiFi module for a non atheros one, alls been good.
I got a replacement module for 15 euro and it was easy to replace

I read an article about switching off smart wifi in the virgin hub settings and that seems to be helping so far but too soon to tell if it has fixed it completely

Have you got a link for the module you used ? If it fixes it then its worth the money

This is the exact module I got. If you look around the Lenovo website you'll see the whitelisted wifi modules and I just went with one which wasn't atheros, in this case 00JT494
