I've just been given a £50 credit by Virgin Media.


Any ideas what the best one I can get?


They recommended Netgear, but didn't know the model.


Are they pretty easy to set up?

you will need a Cable modem router, stay clear of the ADSL ones as it wont with with virgin media.

as for brand name, everyone has their preferences

im a Netgear guy myself, they have never failed me

Thanks for the info bigup.

Any others worth considering with Virgin broadband before I order one?

I use a Linksys one with Virgin Media broadband, but it seems price isn't all that different now so maybe the Netgear one was a better bet...although you've probably already bought one by now anyway!!

netgear!

Linksys WRT54GL - that one specifically, as it means you can easily flash the firmware on it to replace the Linksys one with the dd-wrt firmware, and turn your £40 router into an enterprise-scale one. The other ones in the WRT54G range can be flashed too, but the more recent models are restricted in the amount of flash memory.

More info about dd-wrt: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DD-WRT

you not considered the belkin range,how did you get a £50 free credit with VM.im with them

I believe it was a deal for ex-Telewest customers... I remember reading something about them giving either a discount or a wireless router away to customers. As I'm in an ex-NTL area, I didn't pay much attention to it.

Yes, when Virgin Media was Blueyonder we just phoned them up and they sent out a FREE netgear router. No catch or anything. It might be worth phoning them up and checking out if they still do it.
