V401 error

  • My main V6 box downstairs accesses the bedroom V6 box fine, but if I try to access my main V6 box from bedroom for recorded shows I get the V401 error.

I've tested the network from bedroom and alls good there. 

 

I've had to change the 5ghz connection to 2.4ghz in order for my security cameras to work correctly. 

So why won't the bedroom V6 box access the recorded shows on the main box?

Re: V401 error

V401 means the connection between the boxes isn't fast enough.  Usually it is a Wi-Fi problem, but start by rebooting the SuperHub.  Sometimes that's all that is needed.

Can you not connect the cameras on 2.4GHz but leave 5GHz available for other devices?

Re: V401 error

OK I'll try reboot the box. 

No idea how to split 5ghz ~ 2.4ghz for different devices! 

How's that done please? 

Cheers Phil

Re: V401 error

Hi Phil,

This isn't as complicated as it looks.

Open a browser and log into your hub 192.168.0.1 - you need to use the settings password on the base of your router (8 numerical characters) then navigate to the following settings so you can differentiate between the signals.

Advanced Settings > Wireless > Wireless Signal > click on Disable Channel Optimization  then scroll down and  click on Apply Changes. 

Now go to Advanced Settings > Wireless > Security > add a 5 to the 5 GHz Channel name  and click on Apply Changes.

You can leave the passwords the same as they are.  Then log out of the hub at the top of the page.

You will need to reconnect all you Wi-Fi devices some will want to connect to 5Ghz and some to 2.4GHz and some will connect to either.

The 5Ghz channels have a stronger, faster signal, but the signal doesn't travel as far. 

You could also do a search for an app such as wifi analyzer or inssider which tells you the strength of the channel you are connected on, and also shows other channels so you can decide if you want to change the channel number on your hub

Advanced Settings > Wireless > Wireless Signal >  beneath both the 5Ghz and  2.4GHz sections click on the manual button, and in the drop down box click on the channel number you want to change it to, then scroll down and  click on Apply Changes.

Re: V401 error

I tried rebooting the Internet box but no joy. 

Wasn't too keen to mess about with the ghz as security cameras are working OK on 2.4ghz. 

Looked around settings and found this, see pics does that point at anything pls?

Re: V401 error

So I decided to change the network to 2.4ghz and 5ghz (as instructions above, thank you) my security cameras worked fine.

Then trying either v6 box downstairs and upstairs although the box name appearrd in my shows on both respective boxes I couldnt access the programs on the revelant boxes.

After much messing about I rebooted everything, the Internet and 2 v6 boxes and hey presto it all works now 😁 

Really strange cos both boxes showed an Internet connection at 5ghz so if that's there why cannot they access the other v6 boxes??????
