Superhub, powerline and wifi

Hi there this is my first time post.
I have recently started to use powerline adapators on my home system and all of a sudden every morning when I wake up my wifi fails to work (on iOS devices) and my 5g signal fails to appear.
I now find myself having to reboot my box at least once a day to get it working again.
Any ideas why it's doing this?

Hey Jacko20005,

 

Thanks for posting and a warm welcome to the community Smiley Very Happy

 

Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with your wireless network, I know rebooting frequently can be frustrating.

 

Have you tried to change your operating wireless channel yet? If not we've got a really helpful article which will talk you through the process. Take a look at - Changing the Virgin Media router's wireless channel / frequency when you get a chance.

 

Would you please let us know if this helps,

Take care.

Hi Heather

I have managed to change channels, so thanks for the advice.
However the issue does still seem to remain ☹️️
Just not sure what the answer can be. Surely using power line to TV's/ sky boxes/ PS4 should not be causing the failing of my wifi not getting internet connection or failing to broadcast

Re: Superhub, powerline & wifi

Powerline will not affect WiFI. I've been using them for years. I imagine your setup is as follows:

1. "Master" Powerline connected to a LAN port on the hub;
2. "Slave" Powerlines (are they WiFi enabled devices) around your home;
3. WiFi being broadcast from the VM hub;
4. IOS devices don't gain WiFi access in the morning.

A few more facts are necessary please:

a. Do you switch the VM hub (which model) off at might?
b. Is it only IOS devices that fail on WiFi?
c. If you tried to conenct right next to the hub would it work?
d. Are any of the Powerlines (which brand) WiFi enabled?

Cheers
