Recently my Virgin mobile has failed to connect to my Virgin wifi. More accurately, the connections are listed under Settings - Wifi on my mobile; I am required to enter the password and the screen shows that the mobile is "connecting" and then "connected" but the connection only lasts for a few seconds. Previously, the connection had been made automatically.
The wifi supports other devices so the Virgin Help Wifi team say it is not a Wifi problem. My mobile connects to other Wifi so the Virgin Help Mobile team say it is not a problem with the mobile.
I have spent hours on the phone including to the premium service but without resolution. I'm stuck and don't know what to try next. Could the fact that I'm short on storage space be an issue?
Sign in and click on the wireless icon and the Security Method will be listed for both the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz networks, you can change method by clicking on the drop down menu remembering to save your changes.
Have you tried connecting to the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz network, the phone should be able to connect to either.
I've tried connecting to both 2.4 and 5 ghz services, with identical results. The security setting is WPA Auto. Thanks for pointing out that I could make changes to the router settings, I didn't know I could do that. I haven't changed anything yet although the Virgin folks remotely tried changing channel among other things.
Sorry about your Wi-Fi issues though glad to see you've been getting some good support from the Community
Although it may not be related to your reported problem my tests reveal low modem SNR on the Hub. The network segment to which you connect has shown dipped channel SNR today, intermittently, from about 3:30pm to 5pm. It seems to have abated now and no faults preceded this.
It's worth me keeping an eye on that just in case. But the low modem SNR needs attention from an engineer, so please reply to my PM (purple envelope icon, top right of page) and I'll schedule an appointment for you.
In the meantime please check out our help articles relating to WiFi:
If the issue persists following the engineer visit, and if the wireless configuration changes don't help, please post an update on here and I'll get back to you about this. I'll re-check the network segment in case that needs attention and consider replacing your Hub as a last resort.
I am having the exact same problem with my virgin mobile not connecting to my virgin home wifi. It constantly cuts out and goes onto 3G even though I'm at home and should be on home network. It's using all my data even though I'm at home!
