Incorrect password for WiFi problem

Hi I’m going round in circles with my WiFi 

it’s all on and no errors when I’ve tried to test it in the app but it won’t connect to any device and keeps coming up with a message saying my WiFi password is incorrect but it’s not as is the one supplied by the hub, and never changed it 

I’ve been on hold to virgin on the phone for over half an hour 

ive turned everything off / reset and on again several times 

help !

Re: Incorrect password for WiFi problem

Note that a pinhole reset on a Hub3 can be a bit problematic - so do it (again) EXACTLY this way (not as the VM website says!).

With the Hub switched "on", disconnect any ethernet connections and then push in the “reset pin” with the end of a paperclip/thin nail/SIM tray “tool” or similar (bigger items like ball point pen ends may not press it in far enough) until you feel it at the “stop point” and hold it there firmly for a "timed" minimum of 60 seconds do NOT manually restart the Hub at any time. Leave it 10' or so to stabilise and then your passwords/passphrase for both the Hub settings and the Wifi networks will revert to the two printed on the Hub sticker on its base/side/card. Make sure you use the wifi one for devices connecting to the wifi and the settings/admin one to access the Hub (it is a six digit numeric one).

See if that sorts it.

If that doesn’t sort it - call it in as faulty (08.00 is the best time) or wait here for a VM tech
