Watching recordings on 2nd V6 box

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?

The V6 needs to be on the 5GHz WiFi network, although it will work with Wired as well.

Re: Watching recordings on 2nd V6 box

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.

I have changed the bedroom V6 to 5G and am getting 82% signal, however it will still not connect to the V6 in the lounge
