Hi all

Virgin Media supply my internet and I get great speeds, however their "super"hub has absolutely awful wifi. It's fine when I'm in the same room, but it's poor upstairs and I usually have to use my phone as a wifi bridge for it to work. As I usually game up there, it's starting to get on my nerves a bit.

My friends who are on Virgin also have this problem, and looking at the VM forums I think it is a wider issue. I'm thinking about putting the superhub into modem mode and buying a router to plug in and hopefully this will give me better wifi coverage.

I wanted to see if this was a reasonable idea and if anyone had any recommendations? There's only two of us in the house and the max load is gonna be gaming and Netflix. I'd hope to keep costs fairly low (£30ish) but could go higher if it would make a difference.

You might consider an extender.

The stability of an OS is in direct proportion to the stability of the user.
