V401 error .....

Got two new V6 boxes on Thursday. Can't stream from either to either. Just gives an error code V401 ???

Any quick fixes?

And yes I have rebooted everything and unplugged and knocked on neighbours to ask them to unplug all their stuff too ..... and I've stood on my head to drink a pint of water .... AND I've given the boxes ample time to "settle into their new network" home.

They are currently recognising one another which is a bit of a bonus.

Allegedly 200mb broadband as well.

Re: V401 error .....

OK. After much messing and contacting VM dedicated V6 tech it seems that 2.4 wifi isn't helping with this. So the alternative is to switch to 5g - I did this and up to now am receiving a good service.

For anyone interested - 

Enter your hub and ensure that WIFI is issuing 2.4 and 5g and they are both switched on. (Advanced settings - Wireless - security - enable both 2.4ghz and 5ghz - I added -5G to the end of the SSID Network name so I could tell which to connect to, then scroll down to the bottom of the page and press the APPLY CHANGES button.

Then on each of your V6 boxes in turn -

HOME - HELP & SETTINGS - Settings - Network - Change Network settings - Other options - Connect to WIFI - click on your network name (with the 5G added) - then enter your password. Then go to view network status and the Link status should say connected to 5ghz and this should be fixed until you change or reset.

Once both boxes have been set at this they should stream no problem. 

This is a workaround and am told that VM are working on the 2.4ghz connection issues.

Having done all this the ultimate way to enjoy is to wire both boxes.

I hope this helps a few of us, understand it might not work for everyone.

Hi Hells978,

 

I have added a link here which shows how to access your hub.

 

Please let us know if there's any problems.
