Nope, it won't work. People shouldn't even be selling Virgin routers online as their the property of Virgin Media's.

Buy a powerline, they are easy to use and simple to set up - very little IT knowledge required.

Re: Super hub 2

Basically, a powerline kit will come with a minimum of two adapters and two Ethernet cables.

One of the Ethernet cables plugs into one of the adapters and into the Virgin Super Hub. This adapter should then be plugged into a nearby power socket.

With the second adaptor, plug one end of the Ethernet cable into the adapter and the other in the device.The second adapter should then plugged into a power socket near the device you want to have Internet (in your case, upstairs).

Switch both adapters on and you have one stable connection!
