Help Needed With V6 Box

We have a V6 box in our bedroom and it uses the WiFi but I’m looking to plug a Cat6 Ethernet cable in the back rather than use WiFi. 

The reason for this is that it’s taken ages for the box to start and for the first 10mins there is no information or tv listings.  

When virgin put the V6 box in the engineer stated that the Ethernet would only work if you went in and disabled the WiFi settings otherwise it would always run off WiFi even when plugged in but I can’t for the life of me find these settings. 

anyone help ??

 

Thank You

What @jb66 is saying is that plugging in an Ethernet cable between the V6 and router will cause the Ethernet connection to be used.

Take it out and V6 will use WiFi.
