Re: Broadband speed

Hi,

-  Try a pinhole reset to force any updates.  Press and hold reset button on back for 15 seconds then release for 5.  Repeat this 3 times and wait 10 mins for it to load back up.

-  Log into GUI by typing 192.168.0.1 into a web browser then go to 

Advanced Settings > Wireless > Wireless Signal

1)  Make sure 2.4 and 5 are enabled.

2)  Scroll to bottom and disable smart Wi-Fi.

3)  Select 20 on 2.4GHz

4)  Select 20/40/80 on 5GHz.

Save settings.

 

(Wi-Fi will drop out and then re-connect)

Re-enable smart Wi-Fi and save settings again.

I work for Virgin Media - but all opinions posted here are my own

No, only if you change the passwords on the wifi.  Also VM will only accept speed tests via a wired connection direct to the Hub.

Re: Broadband speed

@Patricia161 unfortunately, no once the upgraded config is sent to the hub and it reboot, then the speed change happens immediately, there's no 'settling down' time. This is actually a worry since it hints towards you either having an intermittent connectivity issue or possibly they didn't actually bother to upgrade you for a day. I'll tend towards the former, so keep a check on your connection and come back if you have problems in the future.
