Read lots of tips but still can't get new hub to work, whereas the old wireless router works perfectly. This was so easy to install as well.This is shown to be the only internet connection. Is this causing the problem? I did uninstall it but this made no difference in trying to connect the new router. The hub is VMDG480 and I get local access only. Tried the atheros site and Hardware Helper wants to charge me to update the driver. There was no hint of this when I decided to take on the new router. I spent well over an hour on the phone last week and the problem couldn't be sorted and there has been no comeback from Virgin. I am really struggling as I am not a computer buff.
Thanks for the reply but I must be thick as I don't understand about the driver downloads. According to the computer it's installed anyway. I am giving up and going back to my old system of the modem and router as this works perfectly; a pity as the new superhub looks classy and there would be fewer wires. I need to gird my loins and try Virgin again. I have spent too many hours on this.
After a few months with the modem and old wireless connector, thought I would have another go with the hub. To cut a long story short, I have spent money on phone calls and have hung on the phone waiting for a reply but am back to square one. After 35 minutes on the phone with a nice guy called Richard, I thought it was sorted. But 10 minutes later and I am down to local access only. Called again was told there's something wrong with my laptop, but how can there be when I am connected now? This is costing me money and although I have been with Virgin for donkeys' years I am thinking of swapping; apart from hanging on the phone is there another way of getting in touch with technicians? The shops don't seem to be much help either.
