Sounds like a conflict. 

I assume the Virgin hub is in router mode, not modem mode? 

Are you sure the additional router is in bridge mode? Make sure it has requested an IP address from the Virgin router and not decided upon one itself.

as above - in simple terms - turn off DHCP on the other router and change its ip address to anything other than 192.168.0.1 - best to give the last digit a highish number so its outside the range of you other device 99 or 100 is usually ok
