WiFi Pod flashing light

I have taken delivery of my new WiFi pod in the hope of reducing blackspots in the house and as part of my deal with Virgin.

However the light keeps flashing - probably for over an hour now.

I've moved it closer to and further way from the router without success.

Is my only option to sit for an hour on their helpline to get a replacement??

Re: WiFi Pod flashing light

Have you made any changes to your hub config?

Intelligent WiFi needs to be enabled and the bands need to be merged to work with the pods!

Re: WiFi Pod flashing light

Thank you for your prompt response. I followed the instructions inside the box, i.e. plugged it in and switched it on.
Haven't touched the hub and wouldn't have the first idea how to enable and merge stuff.

Re: WiFi Pod flashing light

Bands need to be split for them to work, give VM a phone I had a problem with mine one was activated but one wasn't causing issues with my Wi-Fi, got it sorted today one of the pods wasn't provisioned to my hub correctly took a few seconds to sort and everything is working fine now.

Re: WiFi Pod flashing light

Thanks Paulina

Did all that but signal still intermittent.

Quite an old house so may be wall construction may have something to do with it.

Re: WiFi Pod flashing light

Remember if you're still getting poor coverage, you can get up to 3 Pods which can be 'daisy chained' to extend the coverage from the Hub.
