Virgin Media Connect app will not connect

The Virgin Media app says no connection when I am on WiFi on smart phone and iPad . Have reset the Hub 3 uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Clearly a problem as used to be able to use Virgin WiFi on London Underground and that stopped working and now cannot check the house as speed is rubbish.

Re: Virgin Media Connect app will not connect

Hello Pearl60

 

Sorry to hear of the problems using and connecting the Connect App to your home Hub and network, we appreciate you taking the time to raise this with us.

 

When trying to connect to the Hub using the app do you get any error messages at all? Have you made any changes to the password for the Hub and wireless network?

 

Have you been able to follow the advice and steps here?

 

Rob

Re: Virgin Media Connect app will not connect

Thanks for getting back to me Pearl60, there's a few things we'd like you to check and confirm please:

  • The device is connected to the wireless network
  • Temporarily turn off any Boosters/Pod's you may have connected
  • Temporarily disable any VPN's or Anti Virus software and try connecting.

As I have already told you my mobile phone iPad and tv are all working fine on Wi-Fi and  the action you requested i  cannot do as completely irrelevant to me!!!! I am connected to Wi-Fi on my devices so why is the app saying not connected!!!!

Re: Virgin Media Connect app will not connect

Hi @Pearl60,

 

Thanks for confirming. Have you managed to get on to the Connect App since the weekend?

 

If not, please can you confirm for me the device you are attempting to sign in to the app from? Including make/model.

 

Thanks,

Re: Virgin Media Connect app will not connect

HI Millie

I am using a Samsung Galaxy S6 and 2019  iPad Air.

I have given up with this to be honest. Also when in London cannot pick up Virgin Wi-Fi on the underground either.

Increasingly dissatisfied customer not to be mention complaint sent as renewed contract not correct package.

Re: Virgin Media Connect app will not connect

Hi @Pearl60

 

Thanks for confirming. I have requested further information on this and there are no known faults at the moment with the app. However, the Connect App does require an up-to-date software to be able to run on devices too - this will need to be at least 6.0 on your Samsung.

We can try our best to make sure you're getting the right service. Please let me know if you would like to run any checks on the account in the meantime if you are not getting the correct speeds for your package. 

 

I'm sorry to hear you're also having issues using Wi-Fi on the underground. Have you been able to use this before? Can you confirm if you are a mobile customer of ours? Also, are you having any issues with the credentials used to access your My VM Account

 

Here's some further assistance on our Connect App and Virgin Media Hotpots.

 

Keep us posted - we're here to help,

Re: Virgin Media Connect app will not connect

I have followed the steps and have already told you twice the error message I get. I had a nightmare yesterday trying to get printer to work as clearly connected to Wi-Fi and saying no printer found and then iPad was not connecting and automated pathetic  service tested the line and Ipatronisingly suggested  rebooting  the hub and eventually it worked. Blaming Covid for a broadband  support service that was poor before the pandemic is disgraceful.
