[_] Virgin Super Hub - oh dear.

I got an Asus RT-N56U when I realised the Superhub only seemed to have a
useful range of about 3m with no obstructions. I couldn't believe the
difference - wifi now available all over my 3 floor house (router centrally
on 1st floor), and I can attach usb drives to it to act as a NAS.

We got tivo at the same time as the superhub. Spent ages thinking the tivo
made a high-pitched whining noise, until I eventually realised it was the
rubbish netgear power-supply on the superhub. Replaced it with something
from Maplins and it's completely silent now.
