How to get Wi-Fi Pods reset?

forshawj
Up to speed

Hi,

I just upgraded Hub to V5 and thought I would give the Wi-Fi Pods another try .. as I had read that they perform much better compared to the V4 which never was reliable for me...

I plugged in one of the Pods and used the Connect utility but this doesn't see the pods. I guess that the pods need resetting as they previously were configured for the V4.

So I rang VM support and asked about getting 3 pods restarted... Well I got to the first one YAAJ1350**** and doesn't appear on VM's support system 😞 So I rang off...

Any idea HOW I can get the pods reset? Is there a simple process? Ringing 150 doesn't seem to be the answer 😞 Or do I need 3 NEW pods and can send the olds one back... ?!

Thanks

Jeff

Hi, I have the same issue. New Hub 5 installed which is working great but can get the wifi pods to work. 

Thanks 

Exact same issue here. I can’t get my wifi pods to work with my new hub 5. 

thanks

Hi lukehiggins10

 

Sorry to hear of the Pod issues since getting the new Hub, thanks for raising this via the forums and welcome to the community.

 

Sometimes when a hub is updated, the pods which are assigned to the hub itself aren't updated to be assigned to the new device. I will send you a Private Message to get some more details from you to assist. Check the envelope in the top right of the forum when signed in for the message.

Hi - exactly same for me - new Hub5 and new (black) wifi pod just pulsing white and not showing in the app. Please can you PM me to resolve. Thanks!

Thanks to Steven_L for sorting this out for me - seems the pod needs to be associated to the router on your account, so mine must have either not been set, or set to my old Hub 3. If you get the same issue just PM the team and they will sort it.

Hi Steven,

We got a new internet box installed today as we were having issues with our last one. But our booster is still connecting under the old WiFi name instead of the new WiFi name. Hoping you will be able to help. 
Thanks,

Phil

Same issue here - hub 5 replaced due to being borked by software update but neither pod is shown as connected via the app. Would appreciate any support. Thanks
