Pod not connecting

Hi we just got a new hub 3 as we had the solid red light but now our pod upstairs won't connect, it flashes white but when I scan through the app it can't find it. The engineer said just switch it on and it will connect after a short time.

It can take some time for the new equipment to be added to your account to let it pair.  Might be tomorrow if its in an "overnight update" queue.

If it still doesn't happen, call the equipment activation number on - 0800 953 9500 (follow options) and check with them. You will need the Model numbers, serial numbers/MAC addresses off the barcode stickers of ALL pieces of kit (take photos as an aide memoir) and also your account number

ld be useful to know how others solved this issue as Im getting the same problem here.

Hey Sprool, thank you for reaching out and I am sorry to hear this. Also a warm welcome to the community.

Please try these steps for us;

Unplug any Ethernet cables attached to the router and wait at least 30 seconds, then plug them back in. Plug the router's power cable back into the outlet. Plug the modem back in and wait until the modem has finished powering on. Wait at least 2 minutes for your Pods' LEDs to stop blinking.
