Re: Wifi interrupted

Thanks for your answer. Only i shouldn't be buying a modem when I already pay a lot of money for internet only, which is supposed to be faster and more reliable as it is fibre.
But nevertheless thank you.

Re: Wifi interrupted

the router vm provders is only good for some things but not all things one is wifi a bit crap they need to sort it out with a better software and firewire you still have to use the modem with vm you just have to put it in modem mode and put a other router to it in slot number 1 and it blocks the rest of the slots on vm hubs but with a other router you can chack for updates for it and install them ps vm hubs does not get good signals from the wireless network and everyone will say you can run your own routers with vm hubs and most of the people here run there own routers with the hubs every provider routers have there down side even bt, plusnet, sky, post office most of them don't like you turning it to modem mode and use your own routers with the hubs and it is not a modem you going to buy its a cable router its diff.

cable routers don't have dsl connection. Only LAN connection and usb slots and don't have coaxial connection. this can run with virgin media no problem.
modem routers have dsl connection not got coaxial connection and can't run with virgin media.

and some staff here says its ok to run your own routers with there hubs

Re: Wifi interrupted

1st you need to identify if it really is the wireless that's the problem or your actual internet connection.

The best way to do that is to connect something to the Virgin router with a network lead and see if you have the same problems.

If you do then its the internet connection or a problem with the router and you can hassle CS about it.

If it works fine, then its your wifi.

Easiest and cheapest solution is to get a cheap router with good wifi specs off of ebay, disable its DCHP and use it as a wireless access point.

Also get one of the many wifi diagnostic apps for your phone (or pc) and use it to check if you maybe having conflicts with neighbours wifi.
