Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid connection Bought this router and coupled it up to my Virgin Media Superhub 1 mk2. Had no problems what so ever, and it has vastly improved the performance of my home network!! Solid connection, and very fast access times. However, I did have problems using it with my previous Virgin Media modem, but as the other review here says, I too spoke with virgin, and they where only too pleased to sort things out at their end! Now, Virgin have replaced the old modem with the Mk 2 Superhub 1. The router then required nothing more than plugging in!! Well happy! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good. This router, purchased today, is working very nicely. Installation was pretty straightforward, although I did need to get the very nice guy at Virginmedia to reset something down the line. He was very patient and now I'm up and running with a much faster and dual band router.
