How do I connect a V6 tv box if I run a Hub3 in modem mode, and use a different router?

Hi, Ive gone over to a new net gear router and I'm running a Hub 3 in modem mode. Ive switched on my V6 tv box and I see there's 2 red lights lit up on the front of the V6 box. IE no internet access. If I use a Ethernet cable to connect the V6 TV box to the net gear router the 2 red lights go out and the box connects to the internet.

When the V6 box was connected to the Hub 3 no Ethernet cable was needed and it must of connected wirelessly to it. I would like to go wirelessly again with the V6 box but I cant find any settings in the menus to set it wirelessly. Please advise how I can make it wireless like it was with the Hub 3 please? Thanks

Home - help and settings - settings - network - Change Network Settings. You can then choose your own network to connect to.

Hi, Thanks for reply. I don't seem to have  a " Change network settings". I only have "Connect to VM now" view network status" and "view network diagnostics". None of those options lead to "Change network settings".

On my install earlier, it will try a couple of times to connect, then fail, and then a new option will come up 'additional options' or something like that, where you connect to Wi-Fi if you wish (I temporarily connected it to my Netgear router) - it isn't a problem Smiley Happy
