Not too bad a router really. Had no problems with the one supplied by Virgin.

Decent price. In case there aren't any in stock for Collect At Store near you, it's cheaper delivered from Amazon. (£28.31 versus £29.94).

I am VERY dim with stuff like this... Will this share the 20meg broadband that Virgin do! or do I need the Netgear jobbie that they all rave about ? Cheers

My parents have this one and it works i suppose. cuts out a lot though. Only use it in the upright position or it'll overheat

I had one for a while, worked well but then I suddenly had to reset my passwords every few hours with it. May have just had a dodgy unit though. Great price.

This Router will share 1 Virgin Media Cable input fine. I have been using one for a couple of years now.
Keep the router placed in the open on a desk or shelf and you get a great signal all over the house and garden. Great filtering, security and setting up is dead easy.

Wow Thats Cheap my mate bought one of these a month ago for £60 in Pc World. Easy to setup, Ive got one that was supplyed by sky about a year ago and never had any problems.

I think this is the one I got free from AOL.

Ive had this router for at least 2 years, its a good router, does what its supposed to and for 2 year old technology its worth 24.99. Only problems i have are sometimes vista doesnt like the router and about every 2 weeks i have to completely disconnect the router from the modem, but thats no hardship.

Just want to point out to people with ADSL (broadband via the phone line) who are thinking of buying this - DON'T, it isn't compatible.

Great price though for a very respectable Cable router.

For anyone with 4mb or above from Virgin (Cable) just phone them up and ask for one - I did last Wednesday night, and it was delivered Friday morning.

I just said there were adverts all over the internet advertising Virgin broadband with free wireless router, and I thought I should have one too. He said "you're right, I'll send one out". Badabing, badaboom.

i rang up and they said i couldnt have one because i was staff......
nice how they look after their employees.....lol :x
will have to get my mum to call and get me one..hehe

is this ddwrt compatible?

It's a pretty common tried and tested model and works fine for most.

these are free with virgin and sky.

they are good routers though.

I used this for a couple of year with homechoice. Had a few problems with bittorrents but a simple firmware upgrade sorted it out. Would recommend it.

does anyone know if you can VPN onto this router without any special software? just the efault from windows XP? and then use RDP?

thanks

Good price.

If your alreaduy with virgin , you can get this router for abot 6.99 delivered , I did .

Virgin tell me it would cost me £40.

I told them to stuff it.

I asked why they treat some customers differently, and they said they charge all existing customers for the router. Bollox.

this is a great router, oh and i got mine from virgin for free also.

After a lot of searching on Virgin's website i finally found the page that tells you about the [SIZE="3"]FREE Router [/SIZE]!! :thumbsup:

allyours.virginmedia.com/htm…tml

Here's what it says :

Free Wireless router: Available to all new Broadband customers taking our Size: L and Size: XL Broadband services (subject to status and credit checks). Minimum contract term applies. The Wireless router must be kept for your minimum contract term, unless you are told otherwise by us. A non-refundable, one time service charge of £40 will apply to all new Broadband customers taking our Size: M Broadband service and all existing Broadband customers taking the wireless router. The Wireless router remains the property of Virgin Media at all times.

Our wireless router is only compatible with computers that are wireless enabled. If you do not have a wireless enabled computer you may be able to upgrade your computer using our wireless USB adapter or our wireless laptop card. Wireless performance may be affected by a number of factors such as thickness of internal walls, the presence of electrical equipment and the actual positioning of the wireless router.

The wireless router has been designed for use with Virgin Media's Broadband service and includes a 2 year service warranty (for wireless router, wireless USB adapter and wireless laptop card) but this is dependant on you remaining a Virgin Media Broadband customer and using the Broadband and wireless equipment that we provide to you and recommend you use during that 2 year period. Other wireless adapters of appropriate standard may work with our wireless router but we cannot offer support for or guarantee compatibility of this equipment.

Good piece of kit - be aware of configuration issues over AOL and PS3... can be solved but does take a while..

I doubt they are free with Sky as it uses ADSL lines not cable.

Wrong, yes sky give free routers but there's aint for cable. Virgin charge £40 for their cable router, they don't give them out for free unless you are signing up for the deal first time subscriber.

It seems others users on here have been lucky (or my customers have been unlucky) but approx 90% of my customers who call me round to fix their internet problems had this router, it seems PC World and ISPs like to sell this one.

Every time it was due to the router itself either dropping wireless signal at random points for no reason, disconnecting ethernet connected computers from the internet, or locking them out of the admin pannel.

I would only recommend the expensive Netgear routers with those dome lightso n the top, avoid all cheap Netgear and Linksys routers. Belkin are cheap and just work, 3com are cheap and better than Belkin, and my personal favourite (very much to my surprise!) is the BT homehub, I can connect over 10 devices wirelessly without any problems at all. Only problem I had was the NAT kept getting closed for Xbox Live on my 360 but BT issued a FW update to sort that automatically.

EDIT: The above comments were regarding the ADSL model and this is cable so my comments may well not apply to this router after seeing other members recommendations.

LOL:thumbsup:

rubbish router - had it for about a year and it caused me a lot of problems. It overheats very quickly and keeps on dropping the connection.

Check on the internet - this is a known problem with this router.

Better off with a buffalo or d-link where you can flash a dd-wrt or other open source firmwares.

Beware!

Read carefully !!! Is version V 7 !!!! all fix in this firmware !!! is very good router!!!

As network admin i dont think you know what your talking about i deal with routers day in and day out and you get to know what works and what doesnt so i will make it clear for you

Linksys i hate them anyone who says its made by cisco are idiots the difference between the 2 is like night and day poinlessly complicated and hard to configure and i just hate them say no more

Dlink are not a bad bit of kit depending on which model you have certain models are rubbish come with a 2 year warranty if my memory serves me right.

Netgear pretty decent cheap router they do what they are ment to easy to setup aimed at novice home user who wants a easy setup thats the reason ISP's like to give them away.

Belkin i like belkin thats why i choose it freinds and family have them the routers nor usb/pci card have ever gone wrong ive had mine 4 years and its on 24/7. i have the wireless side and the wired side all connections are used 3 go out to belkin 8 port switches which in term supply the rest of my wired network. The best part of the belkin network stuff which none of the others can claim or have is that the parts have a lifetime warranty and 24/7 FREE phone you pay double and more than what it costs for a netgear part but its a better part.

3Com finally its cheap stuff not somthing ive had the pleasure of all that often i have had a couple of 12 port switches at home that worked well i wont claim to know all about 3com what i do know is its the cheaper end of the market and works well most of the stuff ni see is ADSL.

Back to this router for £25 its a cheap entery level router and will be fine for linking a couple of 3 computers to the internet if you are wanting to connect loads of devices wired and wirelessly i would go else where otherwise fine. This would be a cheap wirless bridge for the xbox instead of there £50 wireless card.

Is this router wirelessly compatible with the Wii / DS?

I just called them and they told me there was an automatic charge of £40 for existing customers. They said that the free upgrade for existing customers finished a couple of months ago. Where did u see this advert?

Just bought/installed one; works great with my WII & PC.

Thanks

Hi... I asked a few posts ago if this would share a 20Gb Virgin broadband connection.... Does anybody know?

Thanks, I'm a bit dim.... I know it says 54mbps... but is that the same as 54 gb?

(I know it will share Virgin BB but dont know if it would the 20Gb)

Bloody hell ive just put a new one of these on freecycle!

I had this router and it gave me nothing but trouble! So I changed to homeplugs and gave the router to a friend who has had no problems with it at all!!! The only difference between the setups appears to be that his router is upstairs and mine was downstairs.
