I can suddenly no longer watch the V6 box in the lounge on the bedroom tv. I had this issue in the summer and managed to fix it, but the settings password no longer works. It's something to do with the site varying between 2 and 5 whatever-it-is-measured-in! The box is visible, but just keeps trying to connect then gives up. Can anyone help please?
Ah this sounds like your boxes are linked via WiFi and the signal on 5Ghz isn't strong enough so it's flapping between 5Ghz & 2.4Ghz (which could be slightly better and more reliable). Do you get any specific error messages, as this might confirm the theory. You could also try checking the WiFi signal strength under Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Network, and looking in the top-right.
I'd be inclined to delete your 5Ghz saved WiFi network so only the 2.4Ghz is saved - and see how you get on. Regardless of what the theory book says about what the two bands are better/worse at, I suspect in your case 5Ghz is just too weak.
