Hi all,


We upgraded to Sky Q, which meant we were left with a new Sky Q router and our old (but still quite new) Sky Hub router. Previously we'd had a Powerline adapter run up to my brother's bedroom (as the WiFi was shoddy and he loves porn gaming), and this provided a direct line to his desktop. I decided to add a second router upstairs, and plugged the Sky Hub into the power line. The router works fine, with devices connecting to it (including, wirelessly, a Sky Q Mini and, by ethernet, my brother's desktop).


Except, that is, the Amazon Fire TV Stick. The AFTS is located directly next to the main router, and will connect to it, but unless I've physically switched off the second router, it won't connect to the internet.


In terms of settings:

- The 2.4GHz and 5GHz SSIDs/passwords on the Sky Q (primary) router are the same, and they match the SSID/password on the Sky Hub (secondary router)

- On the Sky Hub, I've turned off DCHP, UPnP, Firewall, Ping, etc. and set its IP address to

- I've tried giving each network a unique name (i.e. Sky Q 5GHz, Sky Q 2.4GHz, Sky Hub), but still no bite

- I've tried disabling the wireless network on the Sky Hub router, but this didn't work either


I contacted Amazon customer support and they had no clue what to do. I've rebooted all the devices and still nothing.


Anyone got any ideas?
