General Advice

Paired with an External Ethernet Modem, Wireless Broadband Routers set up in minutes to let you share your Internet connection, share files, printers, and hard drives from anywhere in your wireless range or by wired Ethernet connectivity that is provided by one of the 4 port on the back of the wireless Broadband router.

Choosing the right wireless networking speed and range to suit your individual requirements can be a confusing business! To help you make the right decision, we have created a short guide to various wireless options and the coverage they provide. Please not this is just a guide, every home or office is different and we cannot guarantee coverage and speed.



  • Wireless G (802.11g, 2.4GHz)
    With Wireless G you can easily set up a wireless network at home or in the office, without cables. Wireless G is ideal for use in modest properties (e.g. Modern Semi Detached House) and for Web-surfing, email on Broadband connections below 8Mbps.
  • Dual Band Wireless (802.11g 2.4GHz & 802.11a 5GHz)
    Ideal for businesses with Dual Band Wireless automatically choose the frequency with the most available bandwidth - either the widely used Wireless G (2.4GHz freq.) or the interference-free Wireless A (5GHz freq.)

Broadband routers are designed to be used with Virgin Media Broadband (previously NTL, Telewest) via a cable modem. If you have a broadband via a phoneline, see ADSL Wireless Routers instead.
