the login details for your router (assuming you have the same netgear as me)
Pass: (your virgin media pass)
On the left bar click "Wireless settings" and change the SSID (Broadcasting name). You can also change the wireless encryption standard and passphrase/key here, but make sure you write it down safely if you are changing it via your wireless connection

on the address bar go to 192.168.0.1
if this doesnt work try www.routerlogin.net
username is either virgin or admin
password is password (standard in routers unless changed by user)
click wireless settings on ssid type a name for your router.
on security options click wpa psk (wifi protected access pre shared key)
underneath a security encryption box will appear type in an 8 character password
and apply at the bottom of the page.
some of the new netgear dg834gv5 routers sometimes need a reset before setting up the wireless should this fail and you need to reset the router id call virgin!!
