Youview box not connecting to broadband
Youview box has just stopped connecting to router. Have done all the usual things, checking connections, turning off/on again etc. Internet to house is working fin, box is otherwise working ok. I suspect that it is the ethernet cable that is at fault - is that likely? If so do I need to get a specific talk talk ethernet cable?
Have you read the current advice only today/yesterday:
Let us know how you get on. Good luck. John L
If the cable is bad and you need a new one, then know that Ethernet cables come with various Cat ratings - the higher the better - and as straight-through or crossover. You want straight-through. There are no special or specific TalkTalk cables.
If the cable is good, though, you might try a soft reset on the box, which is a bit more thorough than a power cycle, if a power cycle has no effect. You won’t lose any recordings or even settings.
So, while not recording nor about to, press the On/Standby button, and keep it pressed for just over 8 seconds, until the box reboots itself.
See if this restores the connection,
