Quick settings question for Virginmedia connection.

Just a quick question.

My daughter got a Superhub from Virginmedia this morning and the signal is what you would call crap.

I have the same ISP using W/7 and my daughter has XP.

She lives half a mile away and I just wondered if my settings for the ip4 address.Subnet,default gateway,ip4 dns.

Would her settings be the same as mine as we are using the same ISP.

Or would they be completely different.

Unfortunately she cant connect her computer using an Ethernet cable till thursday morning as she is getting the cable moved from upstairs to downstairs.Her computer is already downstairs but was connected by wireless.

I don't suppose it will cause any problems just trying it and setting it manually.

What do you think.

Getting a very poor signal from upstairs with the new Superhub

Try this one and check the reviews at the bottom.Looks like some poor reviews for it.

Checking some other Customer reviews a lot with the same views that it not very good.

So maybe we are getting the old stock to get rid of them so that they can then get something better.

Knowing not a lot what would happen if I connected her old netgear router to it.Would it just make things more difficult and give out the wrong signal.

Just PCA you don't know when it is going to show or not to show the Full address.

Not saying that was the problem that time but many a time I have opened the link at the bottom before posting and it worked fine.Then you post it and it does not open correctly.

Bring back the old click here I say.

'what would happen if I connected her old netgear router to it' If you switch off the superhub wireless it will work perfectly well. Check out this from virgin How do I set up Modem Mode on my Super Hub?

buteman's 1st link to help.virgin media.com Super Hub

it's the _ underscores that beggar link up - if there's two of them the bit inbetween turns into italics

I find it better to highlight some words in my post and then click on the globe link and paste the url into the box that pops up.

I don't suppose there is any way of switching the lights off on it without switching the router off.

It is like Blackpool illuminations in here at night with all the lights flashing.

I usually have to switch it off at night if I have to sleep in the spare room for some reason.
