Broadband advice - From NTL Cable to Virgin media and a query
Rather than give computer advice, I'm asking for it for a change.
Basically my girlfriend had ntl internet/broadband/cable whatever, but then was changed to Virgin (bought out I assume). Anyway, her PC is upstairs and there is a cable box in the room which runs up the outside wall (from what I gather) which then has what looks like a coaxial cable running to her router which then has the ethernet cable running to the PC (phew).
So, with that, she wants to move her PC downstairs into the kitchen. Now, for her internet to work she has 2 options based on this that I can see:
Either A: Go wireless
or B: Run the ethernet through the floor/ceiling.
Obviously I would choose option A, however I don't think her router is wireless (still says ntl on it). Would she be entitled to a free virgin wireless box on the most basic broadband package (I assume it's 2 meg)?
I don't know all the details obviously and my info is pretty sketchy but any help is appreciated.
There is a third option of course which is to have the internet downstairs by spltting the phone line and using it that way (like the rest of us lol) but with the cable box upstairs I don't think that's possible and it seems that her broadband isn't linked directly to her phone line. Correct me if I'm wrong please :)
Impress me everyone :D
