recheck all connections your end - only 2 i guess but make sure the coax is connected correctly to the SH and the wall box - they should be finger tight - if its the new pusg fit cable make sure its pushed on - try a reboot - leave it off for a few minutes - it might sort it - failing that ring the activation line again and see what they can see - if the external cabling is ok they should be able to see the SH - did you getmore than BB - phone or TV - do they work
Welcome to the community and thanks for posting. I apologise wholeheartedly for the failed activation of your new services. I fully appreciate this isn't the best start to life with us.
I've managed to locate your account to check this. I can see this relates to a provisioning issue our end which is preventing the Hub 3.0 from activating. I'm afraid there's nothing you can do to get this working as it will require an engineer visit.
I'd be keen to hear the outcome of the visit so please let me know how it all goes.
Hi have a same problem today ... moving a house and switched to Virgin Media .... Done all how instructed but its the same as above ... just green light flashes and in settings shows DC scanning .... Realy disappointed at first start .....
Hi, it seems this thread is going on for quite a while.
I have the impression I have a similar issue. I called and got the activation signal. But when I try to go to virginmedia.com/activate it fails. It SLOOOOWLY opens the registration page and after I fill the fields, shows an error page.
Any known issue I can solve by myself before asking for an engineer?
Reading this and other related threads, it seems to me that the Hub 3.0 has not been adequately tested under field conditions before its roll-out. I wasted over two hours trying to get help with a self-install of a new Hub 3.0. This was sent to replace a failed Netgear SuperHub, which it turned out had just a failed power supply. Before trying to install the 3.0 I plugged the new power supply into the old SuperHub and it worked fine: download 70Mbps as subscribed. I connected the 3.0 and called the helpline number to get an automatic initiation done, but the 3.0 could not acquire the carrier signals: it went into a "DS scanning" state. I called the helpline and spoke to one specialist. After she twice sent an initiation signal and at least four power recycles, the 3.0 eventually acquired the carriers and was on line. However, after 30 minutes after I hung up, the download speed was only 0.14Mbps! I called back and spoke to another specialist. After his first attempt to reset the hub it never acquired the carriers again, even after several more remote resets and over ten power recycles. Then he told me he saw there was a fault in my area. I suggested we try putting the old SuperHub back to see if that was the problem. When I did, it worked fine (download speed 70Mbps). I am sticking with the old SuperHub. I am in a new block of flats with new cabling and none of my neighbours have issues with their old SuperHubs.
Hi after 6 months with virgin media my broadband is showing ds scanning. I contacted the technical support to get the same over and over, turn your hub off and on lol is that the best you can offer in xmas day? They will send an engineer in 5 days leaving without broadband for all xmas. I wanted to cancel the service because the only thing they offer to apologise about it was 6 pounds. The answer was if you want to cancel the service you need to pay the termination fee when they are breaking the contract and not providing the best technical help possible. Virgin when are u going to realise that you need certified people to perform the job.....
