  • How to Set Up a Guest Network on your Hub

How do I set up a guest network on the Virgin Media Hub?

The Virgin Media Hubs allow you to set up a separate guest network for those devices you use just for entertainment, for example. So your gaming consoles will link to each other and the internet using WiFi connections, but not to your computer. Helping keep confidential information safe and secure, and to set controls for what the kids can do with their gaming devices.

 

Which Hub do you have?

Hub 3

Don’t forget, you can easily set up a Guest WiFi Network using our handy Virgin Media Connect app.
