Re: wireless not working on router

Hi Heather,

 

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:

http://help.virginmedia.com/system/viewArticle.jsp?uuid=11432374-3074-43AF-A536-7ED39C0B04CA

 

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.
