I am currently using the Virgin Netgear modem/wireless router to supply my internet to pc/laptop/PS3.
I have Virgin TV upstairs so have one of the white boxes on the wall that the cable comes from.
I recently bought a new pc so put my old one uptairs (right by the Virgin wall point) and I wondered if i could run the internet straight from this wall socket rather than put ANOTHER wireless reciever to put more work on my downstairs modem/router?
I still had the old Virgin media Scientific Atlanta modems so I plugged that into my pc. I reset the settings and typed in factory password/ admin combo put it won't let me connect?
There is a signal getting through to the pc, just the broadband won't come through?
Any help would be appreciated, I am wondering does the upstairs Virgin wall point need to be "turned on" for internet supply?
