i had a wireless router so i just pluged it into my virgin modem. i wouldn't pay £40 on principle i've been with them 5 years and pay about 60 a month, i said i'll leave and go sky and put the phone down that was last week not rang back or wrote to me, you never no

I have xl bb,tv,phone,
and i got one for nothing,
i rang up 3 times,first 2 wouldnt give me router,
but nice lady on third try did,
depends on who you get,mind you i had mine since launch day,a few months now.

Going by this thread you just have to phone and pay £7.50 P&P for a free wireless router if ur an existing customer ! :thumbsup:

Then you get ****** service in general, most isps that give free routers arent the best barring O2/BE since you get nothing for free in this world so you will suffer with bad quality ****.

You need a modem as there isnt one with a router built in.

try a scan on your ps3 and it should find an unsecured network if you havent set a username and password. Mind you, all your neighbours can use your conenction too! :?
