hi, you should give the superhub back to your friend as he will be charged for it, it has to be collected/returned as virgin own it.
have you not get a orange router?

And it is probably a Cable Router, not an ADSL Router.

You keep trying these unsuitable routers on Orange.

Your best bet is to buy a router on eBay, like a Netgear DG834GT or DG834G v4. You can get one new for about £15-£20 as I just done.

does the wirelesswork fine in the same room?
you could try putting the router on its side , (turn the router 90 degree).
on your laptop how many wireless networks are there.

if you have got a superhub these have only been around for a couple of months, if you have a cable router like the dlink dir615 or netgear you could connect it to your orange lan port

Hi, Wow! “Virgin Media Super Hub” have not seen that before…

The Netgear wireless signal problem, if your walls are covered with plasterboard it could be foil backed and will lower the wireless signal to other rooms.
