2 routers same house

I live with housemates so there was a virgin media router in my place already. I just got another router/ account as sales team told me it would work by connecting the router to the "tv plug".

The router is on but no wifi.

Log in to the Hub and check to make sure it is in Router Mode.

If it is check that the Wi-Fi is enabled.

i assume you mean VM hubs - its certainly possible to have 2 accounts at the same address - is that what you mean - and its possible but not normal to run the 2 hubs on the common input

so assuming there are 2 accounts and you have connected the new hub have you rung and activated it - if not you need to do that - if you have what colour is the base light on the hub - if its white post some info

log into hub3 - 192.168.0.1 [or 192.168.100.1 if in modem mode] - DON'T SIGN IN, click - click router status [centre of screen] - and post the downstream and upstream figures - to see those press on the grey buttons/boxes labeled - upstream - downstream

whilst you have problems is the original hub still working

Re: 2 routers same house

It's perfectly fine to have two hubs in the same home off a single cable if the signal strengths are good. The cable after all has to be split somewhere, which is either in the home or in the cabinet.
