when trying to connect to virgin media hub,laptop says "its taking to long to connect to the internet" and "this computer is connected to virginxxxxxxx but does not have access to the internet." x=virgin media numbers i dont want to put on here. ps. a virgin media engineer once told me to install an arheros network card on the laptop,but i dont know how to do that.
