Just joined the Virgin Media crew for the first time last week, and signed up for the 20mb cable package.
The router I got was a Virgin branded Netgear jobby, the VMDG280. I'm not going to beat around the bush, it's pretty naff. Seems to buckle under too many connections and the wireless leaves a little to be desired.
Anyway, I was just looking at what my options are really. I'm guessing flashing this router with a modified firmware isn't an option unless anyone knows different? Is there any way I could get Virgin to swap it for a standard modem so I could buy my own router?
I'm presuming you can't just buy a new router/modem (or just modem) because of the disrepancy with the Virgin-side MAC address. Or am I wrong?
Any assistance much appreciated
