I don't work for Virgin Media, but I wondered if I could offer some advice?
Have you tried a 'pinhole reset' of the VMDG280? This should restore it to factory default settings, with the wireless activated. Details on how to do this here:
If this doesn't work, you can log in to the VMDG280 configuration pages in order to verify that its wireless radio is on:
Using a computer that is connected to the VMDG280 via ethernet cable, visit the configuration pages at http://192.168.0.1
The username is admin, the password is changeme (unless you have changed it).
The resulting configuration web pages that are displayed have a series of menus on the left hand side. Under 'Advanced' click on 'Wireless Settings'. Make sure there is a tick in each of the boxes corresponding to 'Enable Wireless Gateway Radio' and 'Broadcast SSID'. If necessary, click on the 'apply' button to save the changes.
