That driver has to do with the USB printer server, which if you haven't connected a printer to the router isn't needed. If you haven't you can safely just uninstall it.

If you are connecting a printer to the router, try the driver available for download instead of the one that came on the disk,

Ok mate I thought that what it would look like for the incoming signal. I don't have much experience with that sort of stuff pity it wasn't an plain bog standard cable coming in.

Now have a look at what stormy has put in because the printer normally operates off the machine as I have never seen one operate from a router direct - only wifi stuff which if that what it is then I would disregard that yellow triangle.

Most modems I have ever come across have that set up I posted (post #6 ) that is usually coming from a splitter that splits the incoming signal - one to the telephone and one to the modem because it stops interference on either device.

Now connecting from the modem to the router should be the usual Ethernet one so no problems with that but I think the best solution to this is a modem / router that can be connected to the incoming line.

So before we go any further can you send the shot of the back of your modem showing how it is connected to the incoming line form the wall.

hey just notice on my virgin bill my broadband is up to 50mb but sure my modem can only handle 20mb trying to verify this before I ring them, herd there super hub is rubbish thought but can use in modem only mode use your own router

Ok so just so I have it right that is your download speed or as I suspect the total download. Now if that is the latter then is a piddling amount of download - for example my local (national) provider gives me 100GB of download per month and when I use my wifi adaptor I get 12GB for a year.

Now the amount of data your modem can handle for the life of me I cannot see why the amount it can only carry is 20MBs or is that GBs?? It seems rather ludicrous in this day and age for that to happen or are you on a plan where they limit you. Personally I would check around for a better deal. I am sure my brother who lives in Wiltshire can tell me more he is pretty savvy when it comes to deals like that.

Off the top of my head my download speeds can vary but average on 600MBs so whatever way you look at it Virgin are being very stingy with dowmloads speed or amount unless you meant GB or GBs as totatl and speed.

Now a little free program I use on my desktops is this FlorianGilles.com - NetSpeedMonitor and one can set it (I do) as in that first picture comes up. There are other monitors but I find this one good and it is a very small app to run.

Just as a matter of interest did you shop around for a provider when you set up the internet?? because as usual you get what you pay for and it need not be that expensive - Virgin from my experience has many fingers in many pies and I have to say that once they start something up they often sell it on.
A good example is my credit card out here they sold it onto a major bank who try desperately for me to change to theirs and I won't because the original deal came with no annual fee whereas the bank one does although they try to tempt you with what looks like a better deal.

wow im know expert here, all I know is they say I can get up to 50mb but my modem only delivers 20mb, but surely my wired virgin broadband is the best I can get if a bit dear .... talk talk for instance gets well bad reviews but fraction of price ..... plus they (virgin media) just got back to me say I need the big superhub but to use as a modem grr its massive ???

Web I will mail my brother as O don't know how it works in the UK now he will have some idea just hang on for a while. Sounds to me you are getting the thin end of the stick mate because the last time I was in contact with him he said he has no issues with broadband. Good grief and I thought we were bad enough out here.
