V6 Box will not connect to by WiFi to Hub

Hi all, been struggling to connect my second box in my kitchen to the internet since WiFi went down last week. WiFi now working and router and living room hub working fine. 
Box in kitchen works for tv but no on demand etc as no internet. Done numerous resets but no luck - keeps coming up with a N27 code saying cable unplugged but it is not connected to the hub via a cable - should be by WiFi. When I connect to WiFi on the kitchen box it says it is successful but  then immediately says the same failure and no internet connection.

Can anyone please help?

Thanks

Hi @Tricky1001 

Double check your V6 box and make sure that it hasn't got an ethernet cable plugged in. If it has then you need to remove it as it will prevent the V6 making a WiFi connection.

I would also double check the white coaxial cable is snug and tight and not kinked. 

Have you followed the online help for https://www.virginmedia.com/care/tv-error-code/N27  ?

Hi, thanks for replying.

No cable attached and nothing changed to this setup since it was set up over a year ago.

Yes coaxial cable is all fixed - no problems and yes tried all the fixes on that online help - but nothing seems to work!!

What does the network connections screen report in the top-right?

Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Network

Are you able to connect an Ethernet cable to the V6, just to try toggling the WiFi disabled/enabled? Even if it's connected to thin-air at the other end.

Hi Serena,

Thanks for the contact. Was just going to post that amazingly I turned my tv on last night and it had all fixed itself!!

Don’t know how but just glad after around a week of being down I can eventually use the full system.

Thanks to you and the Community for feedback and taking the time to comment.

Tricky
