Wifi Booster - Changing Network Name and Password

I have successfully paired boosters and can connect devices using network name and password given. However, when I try to log in to http://virginmedia-vmp to change settings, I am told password is incorrect.

This, despite being able to use the same password to connect all my devices.

Any ideas, team?

Re: Wifi Booster - Changing Network Name and Password

You need to use the settings passcode to sign into that page not the WiFi password.

The default passcode is printed on the back of the booster.

Re: Wifi Booster - Changing Network Name and Password

Now I have used this and signed in - it advises to copy hub settings to booster.

I did this and have now lost booster on the network. Should I reset then skip this stage next time?

Re: Wifi Booster - Changing Network Name and Password

The boosters will now be broadcasting the same wifi name as the hub rather than their own name.

You need to login to the booster now by its IP address as you probably won't be able to get to it via the VMP URL you were using previously.
