I rent a room in a share house. I have a coaxial cable in my room and I tested with a friend's virgin hub 3 and it is live. I dought on ebay a used hub 3 and now its says registration failure. What can I do??
Many thanks in advance for your help.
Utter waste of money, all VM hubs are owned by VM and effectively rented to you. Anyone selling one is committing a criminal offence.
Why should it work and give you free wifi?
The other router is registered legally with VM and your coax is 'live' - your ebay router is an old one that has been .binned' and no longer registered with VM...
Using your example: one person pays for VM wifi in a block of flats eg 12 … and the other 11 log onto it and get it free!!!
Or reverse it …
You pay your electricity bill and the other flats connect into yours wiring and receive it for free!!!
Moral: Don't buy on ebay unless you know what you are buying and its' legality!!! … ZvnK ...
