Re: WiFi issue on Google Pixel XL

The app isn’t working correctly, so I can’t order one through it.

Can I get one through this forum? I’m on another thread on this forum asking the same question. So far I haven’t had an answer if I can or not.

Re: WiFi issue on Google Pixel XL

I give up.

I’ve asked the same simple question many times on this forum, and still haven’t received an answer or a response that has help me in any way.

This has been a complete waste of my time.

I’m unsure as to why a forum that is set up to help people move forward and solve problems, doesn’t.

Re: WiFi issue on Google Pixel XL

Hey Kennewby, thank you for for reaching out and I am sorry you are struggling to get onto to the connect app.

The first thing to be aware of is you need to be connected to your Home WiFi in order for the app to connect to the Hub. It won't allow the connection if you're on a Guest network, VPN or Mobile data. If this still doesn't help, try clearing the data within the Connect App. These steps will help you do that: 

For your Apple device, you can try this: Open Settings > Tap your name > Tap iCloud > Tap Manage Settings > Tap the Connect App > Tap Delete Data. 

For your Android device, you can try this: Open settings > Apps > Connect App > Storage > Clear data / Clear cache. 

If this also fails then we currently have a known error with some of the data in our systems, that is causing the app to not recognise the Hub in a minority of instances. We are already investigating this as a high priority. 

Pop back and keep us posted. 

Thanks.

Re: WiFi issue on Google Pixel XL

I am connected with the app to my wifi.

everything works within the app EXCEPT speed tests - thats when I get the message telling me i ned to be connected to the hub even though I actually am.

 

This is the issue I'm asking for help with.

Just to be clear, again

the app works, it is connected to the hub, it is connected over my wifi, its not on a VPN or anything else - it just tells me I'm NOT connected to the hub when i try to run a speed test - this is the error in the app.

So I cannot run a speed test within the app due to this error within the app (I have the app on 2 different devices- both been re-installed many times) 

So I cannot order a max pod using the app.

I've asked on this forum if I can order one - many times - but I cannot get an answer.

What next?

Re: WiFi issue on Google Pixel XL

Here’s a screenshot from my IPad, it’s connected to WiFi, this is what is happening with the virgin connect app.

you can see the full WiFi bars, the WiFi on the iPad is working fine, the connect app connects to the hub, shows me all my connected devices tells me they’re all “great” connection speeds (including my Google Pixel XL even though the WiFi doesn’t work the phone? Full bars on it as well but horrendously bad experience trying to use WiFi on it (at home on WiFi, works on other peoples WiFi everywhere else without any issues). Speedtest results using fast.com, Ookla, google, SamKnows, of 0.03Mbps and sometimes FAILED test results on the phone)

on the virgin connect app I try and run a speedtest and it says I need to be connected, When I definitely am connected to the hubs WiFi , I click connect and it loops back and tells me I need to be connected. 

it’s been installed many times, on different devices, I don’t use a vpn, everything is updated. I have a hub 5. Any ideas?

Re: WiFi issue on Google Pixel XL

This isn’t solved - the answer didn’t solve the problem? Why is this marked as “Solved”?
