No need to post twice, especially adding to a long-since solved post 😉

First, check for known area faults on 0800 5610061.

Otherwise, you either have a fault or a failed software download. How is your V6 connected to your home-hub for onward connectivity?

both v6 boxes are connected via Wi-Fi.

only one is having this problem. I assume as one is still working fine and the other not it’s not due to service issue in area?

Possibly one box has updated software and the other's got stuck.

Either way, I'd call in as a fault at this point. VM may be able to recover this remotely, or arrange a replacement box.
