Reason: I have been using it in combination with an old Belkin wireless router - and recently there has been trouble connecting modem to router.
The Virgin router that is refered to in my current package is actually newer tech and has faster stats so makes sense to use something that I am already paying for rather than buy a new router. I seem to remember loads of what appeared to be spam info about upgrades a while back but get so much unwanted stuff in the post and online I think I missed it.
Thank for the link. I have used it to order a hub upgrade.
