WiFi issue on Google Pixel XL

Hi, 

I had a hub 3 which had issues, so I’ve now got hub 5 - my speed package is 200Mbps Fibre, newly installed.

My Google Pixel xl mobile phone, which was getting results from Failed to 0.08 Mbps upto 180 Mbps from the hub 3. As were other devices, hence the swap out to the Hub 5 as it was unusable on most devices buffering video, drop outs, not connected messages etc - iPad, Fire Stick, PC, Mobiles.

Immediately after the Hub 5 was installed my Pixel 5 is still getting either Failed speedtests, or as low as 0.03 Mbps and sometimes rarely upto 40 Mbps, even when just a few feet away from the hub. But, the other devices which were having issues with the previous hub 3 are now getting over 100Mbps consistently.

Anyone got any ideas? I like the Google Pixel and don’t want to replace it just to see what happens, it’s still as new as the day I got it and has no other issues and the high speedtest results it was getting on the Hub 3 prove it can handle high speeds over WiFi….just not at the moment on the hub 5…?

Cheers

Ken

Re: WiFi issue on Google Pixel XL

Hi, thanks for the reply 

I have installed a WiFi max pod and it's now working so much better except, upstairs in my home, my phone is still unusable on WiFi and speed test results on it are 0.05 or similar.

It's very strange, it's only the phone, it's only upstairs, I called today to ask for another WiFi max pod to fix this issue as I was advised by the last 2 engineers to do this.

But, I was told that I couldn't have another one yet as the system hadn't registered the first one yet? So I'll hopefully call back in a couple of days, get another one and get it sorted.

It's been a very strange problem but hopefully sorted soon with the next WiFi max pod.

Hi Ken, thanks for coming back to the thread. We would need to wait seven days from the original Pod to be able to order a new one. 

Kind regards,

Hey Kennweby, thank you for reaching back out.

It's no problem at all, please remember you can order you 2nd pod from the Virgin Connect app also. Thanks

Re: WiFi issue on Google Pixel XL

Hi, I can’t get another pod as the connect app says I’m not connected even though I am. 
can you order one on this forum?

 

cheers

Re: WiFi issue on Google Pixel XL

Can I get a max pod through this forum or not? I’m not getting an answer?

The virgin connect app does not work on my phone or iPad after multiple re-installs. It cannot find the hub.
