Have a desktop (for the kids) and I have a laptop. Recently getting intermittent dropped internet connections on the laptop, maybe 2-3 times an hour, just for a few minutes. Also have a few students in the house with laptops and they tell me they use an outside connection, someone elses unsecured, so I am not happy!!
Have tried all normal remedies, everything off, resetting etc. I am with Virgin media cable broadband (L). From troubleshooting stuff I went through today, it seems the router I have had for a few years (Linkskys) is faulty and I need a new router.
Virgin offered me a G router for £40 or a N router for £50. I really am in the dark and don't know where to begin getting one. (Needless to say, someone else will installing and sorting all that out).
But just to save time (and money), who has the best offers.
Also a bit irritated that something that just sits there, can break like this........is this common with routers????
