Lack of pictures when scrolling

Hi 

 

I’ve been with NOW TV for about 3 months.

the last 6 weeks I get the odd buffering 

but what annoys me even more is there’s no

pictures!

I can be scrolling through you tube ,Instagram even amazon

the first say 20 pictures come up.

then each picture is just blank .

 

I never had this with my last BB provider AND I couldn’t get fibre with them,

lve noticed no difference in speed either

ive done the usual turning of WiFi on my phone,my router couldn’t be any closer

ive unplugged apart from resetting the router I’m at a loss.

Is the NOW box connected via Ethernet or Wi-fi? 

For slow Wi-fi you can separate the channels whereas the signal is often mashed together.

 

https://help.nowtv.com/article/improve-broadband-speed

Your Hub Two is dual-band (2.4GHz and 5 GHz). Splitting these bands to create 2 different Wi-Fi networks can help to improve the speed to your devices. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Connect your Hub Two to your laptop or computer using an Ethernet cable.
  2. Open your web browser and enter "192.168.0.1” in the address bar.
  3. Select Maintenance and enter “admin” and “nowtv” as the username and password.
  4. Select Wireless and then 2.4 GHz Wireless Settings
  5. Scroll down to “Wireless Access Point” and uncheck Synchronise 2.4GHz and 5GHz Settings.
  6. In the ‘Name (SSID)’ box, Change the network name to distinguish it from the current network (e.g. add “_2.4G” to the current name). Select Apply.
  7. Check the network name has been updated, and then select 5GHz Wireless Settings.
  8. To be able to see easily which network is which on your devices, change the ‘Name (SSID)’ here too (e.g. add “_5G” to the current name). Select Apply.
  9. That’s it. Select Logout at the top of the screen to exit.

I wish it was easy to actually create a post. I cannot find a way of doing it.

@gavs82008 Surely that is my business? Why does it matter? Are you now policing us?

No I don’t work for NOW and not do I “police” the forum, was just being curious. 
Sorry if I caused any offence.

 

When you are on either “Using NOW” or “Talking NOW” pages you should see the option near the top to create “New Post”. Have taken a screenshot for you, see below.

Sorry I've had a bad day. I've never heard of talking now or using now.

It’s all good, hope your doing ok! 

So “Using NOW” and “Talking NOW” are the 2 sections of the community where you can create “posts”(threads).

 

Whenever you open the community you often see this screen (below). If you select either “Using”’ or “Talking”, you’ll get the option to create “New Post” which is starting a new thread.

@gavs82008 I had no internet this morning!! In the ssd on my iPad it was showing the original now tv name +5ghz but it just wouldn’t connect.

on the hub it had the power button and internet but no wireless light🙁

so I’ve had to do a hard reset.

now if I’m not using my iPad ...each time I do I have to reconnect the wireless on my iPad settings.have I done something wrong?

If I am not mistaken you will only need to input the password if you have to perform a "hard reset" which is what you've done.

Yes your correct😊 but when I split the router it just keep saying this is unavailable please try later😂

this was when I clicked on the 5ghz in connection 2 wasn’t even there!

ive cocked up somewhere😂

never mined I’ve done a reset now,so hopefully that will sort the problem 

thanks for your help.

Haha don’t worry we all can’t be perfect all the time 😂 

Seriously though, I am with BT for broadband so can’t be much more help than giving you links.

That being said I was briefly a broadband customer with NOW and didn’t have many issues, although I did live in a 1 bed flat and not many people on my street had Sky/BT/NOW broadband.
