Wifi installation flashing green light

Joining in

Hi there, 

I’ve installed 3 maybe 4 VM Hub 3 wifi boxes before but I’ve never experienced this issue.

I’ve just moved into a new flat and obviously made sure that virgin was compatible with the property (which they said it was) before buying it. But on install I’ve experienced this green flashing power light with the wifi symbol staying a solid green. I’ve read on loads of forums and I’ve got loads of different answers with nothing seeming to work or help.
I just want to ask is this (see below), that was already in the wall compatible with the VM boxes or should I remove it completely for a straight F-plug adapter? If yes why am I experiencing this flashing green light?! I’ve unplugged and redone it all 10x over as well as cleaning all the terminals and making sure everything is 100%. But still i’m having no luck. Please help. 

Many thanks

Either the Hub is not registered properly, or the cable has been disconnected in the street cabinet. You will need to ring VM, or wait here a day or two for a VM Mod to pick this up.
