Mines OK too - a decent signal through thick cottage walls!

Hello _

Mine works fine , I've heard there is a high defect rate with these .
Virginmedia will send you a spare if you ask nicely.
I also noticed the superhub is unusually sensitive to having things right
next to it. Give it plenty of space and it works fine. This could be airflow
or signal.
Mine happily does 150mbit wireless all day through the floor.

A friend of mine has just took delivery of a shiny new virgin super hub. We
were very excited about it until we realised a coathanger and a lemon would
have a superor wifi performance.

We are planning on putting it in bridged mode and attaching a real wifi
router to one of its annoyingly positioned ethernet ports.

Suggestions for good wireless routers please.
