Weak Security on wifi Booster - cannot get into Booster

Hi All,

I have weak security showing on my boosters, which I would like to resolve. I have already changed my Hub 3.0 settings to WPA2-PSK and this has resolved it from there. 

When connected to my Boosters however it still shows weak security.

  • I have tried connecting an ethernet cable to change it that way and it would not connect. 
  • Also tried doing this through wifi on my laptop
  • tried virginmedia-vmp
  • entering the ip address to connect.
  • tried to connect on mobiles as well

I am running out of ideas and can't see any further information online?

 

Virgin provided powerline boosters if that makes a difference

You will need to find out the new IP address the router has assigned your boosters, if you log into the hub and look for the boosters IP address and type it in you can change it from there.

 

For example.it might be 192.168.0.23

Doesn’t allow access in what sense?

Does the login page actually load?

I mean I could do but more of one to try and figure something out over sacking it in and throw money at it 👌🏼

Are you paying a monthly fee for them?
