    Default wireless router for cable

    Anyone got a wireless router suitable for virgin media knocking about? Prefer uk to keep postage down.

    I've got a D-link wireless router that works with a cable modem if that's any good to you?
    I'll get the model number when I get home.

    I've also got a Belkin 54g wireless router if the D-Link one from Ruud proves unsuitable; I'm on Virgin and it works 100%.

    I'll get the model number for you this evening.

    Edit: It's a Belkin F5D7230-4

    No worries; just for the record, I've not had signal dropout issues with my Belkin.

    What firmware version is on it? Have you tried the "Update Firmware" option in the menu to find the latest version?

    i have, tried different channels, downloaded a tool to show what other channels my neighbours were on to make sure it wasnt that, tried different security settings. gave up on it a while back - but just got a ps3 and wanted to have wireless again.

    Right, I've dug it out of the loft
    It's a D-Link DI-624+ AirPlus G+ 802.11g/2.4Ghz Wireless Router. Should work with either a DSL or Cable modem afair.
