when I spoke to the last VM engineer that paid a visit, he said that VM were ditching the then bad wi-fi boxes and that as a interim there was going to be a much improved FW update to the existing boxes. Might pay to see if there is a new FW. tbh I have mine hooked up as a bridge to my Buffalo Wireless Router and all is fine and dandy. I also have a Linksys in the living room for anyone wishing to connect downstairs as the upstairs signal can be a bit carp. -Clive- On 7 February 2013 17:27, Jon Free <jon.free at candid-online.co.uk> wrote: > I had mine refitted by Virgin for free upstairs rather than down and it's > been a load better since. > > > On 7 February 2013 17:17, Martin Moore <martinm at it-helps.co.uk> wrote: > >> Mines OK too - a decent signal through thick cottage walls! >> >> >> -----Original Message----- >> From: underscore-bounces at under-score.org.uk >> [mailto:underscore-bounces at under-score.org.uk] On Behalf Of Amias Channer >> Sent: 07 February 2013 17:15 >> To: underscore at under-score org uk >> Subject: Re: [_] Virgin Super Hub - oh dear. >> >> 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.
