Can't Connect Apple Devices to Superhub 3.0.

Hi,

I have recently joined Virgin Media and have received my self install pack. All set up easy enough but my MacBook could not connect to the Hub 3.0 through WiFi. It can connect through an ethernet cable but when I have set up an office in another home, this is not proving helpful. I have tried other devices, and while my Samsung phone will connect (although that did take a while), other apple devices will not. Have tried iPads, iPhones, etc but no connection.

An engineer came out today and could not see much of a problem as his device could connect (which was android) but as he could see my device could not, and after explaining other devices could not as well, he is arranging for an IT specialist to come to my house on Monday afternoon.

I am writing today just to enquire if anyone else has had similar problems with the SuperHub 3.0 so that I can see I am not the only one? If so, how did you deal with these problems or are they still occurring?

I can't say it's anything wrong with my device as it works perfectly, and can connect easily to other WiFi routers (including my parents, which is an old style Virgin Hub - possibly 2.0).

Thanks, Amanda

Re: Can't Connect Apple Devices to Superhub 3.0.

"No connection" is a very broad description from which we, at a distance, can't glean much.

FYI, when my Hub is in router mode, my iPhone and iPad connect perfectly.

So, what essays or screen behaviour do you see?

I go through the process of joining my wireless network, inputting the password, the WiFi symbol in the corner shows me that it is attempting to connect however a pop-up then comes up stating that the wireless network could not be joined. On the iPad it states connection failure.

Whenever I get that, I turn wireless off and on on the Apple device.

Re: Can't Connect Apple Devices to Superhub 3.0.

I have done that multiple times to no avail. I have also restarted and fully shut down devices and restarted them to try again, same response.

I have also completed a number of resets on my Hub itself, including reverting back to factory settings. Again, to no avail.

Tried changing the security mode to WPA2-PSK in the WiFi settings? link: http://192.168.0.1/?wifi_settings&mid=WirelessPrimary

Re: Can't Connect Apple Devices to Superhub 3.0.

Very strange indeed. I have had no difficulty connecting iMac, iPad Air, iPad Mini and iPod touch to Superhub 3.

Have you separated the two wifi bands and tried to connect specifically to either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz band?

Re: Can't Connect Apple Devices to Superhub 3.0.

I have just tried this after your suggestion but still not making a difference. (Changing the security to WPA2-PSK)

How can you separate the two bands ? As when I spoke to the engineer about this (as my parents have an older hub that separates the two bands for you to connect to either), he stated that when the hub is connected, it chooses which band suits best.

... or clearer, it's Advance settings then Wireless then Security.
