I recently bought a new router because the Virgin one wasn’t up to the job. However, I now can’t seem to connect my two V6s so I can watch recordings from each other. The V6 downstairs is connected by Ethernet, while the one in the bedroom is on WiFi. How do I get them to talk to each other?
On the affected second box, go into the Network Connections screen (Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Network) and check what the WiFi signal strength in the top-right is reported as.
Does your router support dual-band WiFi, in other words the 5Gh & 2.4Ghz band? Traditional advice has been to use the 5Ghz band ideally, but this doesn't have the same range as 2.4Ghz and you may need to experiment for the best results.
