1.Verify that your cable internet service works by plugging your network cable into the back of the cable modem, turn off the cable modem and wait about 30 seconds and turn it back on. Restart your computer to allow it to obtain a fresh IP address from the cable modem. Open Internet Explorer and see if a web page loads. If you have success you can move on to step #2. If not call your cable service provider for tech support. 2.I have a linksys WRT54G wireless/w 4 port wired network hub, this work pretty good to set it up. The wired part makes set up of the wireless side a lot easier, this requires two computers and that's why you have a network right? Plug into the wireless router in the #1,2,3 or 4 port and type in your browser This should bring you to a request for a username and password, default is admin admin. If you can't find the router from the IP address above or don't know the password (maybe it's been changed and you can't remember) you can reset the router by holding down the reset button for 30 seconds. 3.Now you are in the administrative part of the router, make sure the wireless part is turned on and rename the network something unique so you don't look like the other dozen linksys routers in the neighborhood. In step 4 I will show you how to secure your wireless network so the world doesn't tap in for free internet. 4.> 1. Log in to your router and enter the default password. The version of the firmware or the router that you are using will determine where the Change Password button is located. Make sure you find it. This is the single most important step. Change the default password and choose a password that contains both numbers and letters. This will reduce the possibility of your password being guessed or hacked. 2. Configure your DHCP settings with only the number of computers that need Internet access. For example, if you have five computers, configure DHCP to hand out only five addresses. 3. To further secure your router with DHCP, find out the MAC address of each computer and configure DHCP to assign leases to specific MAC addresses only. If you run an ipconfig /all (from the Windows command line) on each computer, you can obtain the MAC address. It is listed as the "Physical Address" and will have a format that looks like this: 00-50-56-X0-00-08. 4. On a regular basis, visit the Linksys Web site to make sure you have the latest version of firmware for your router. 5. Your router has a setting to Block WAN Requests from the outside. You should keep this setting enabled because it hides your IP address from the rest of the world. 6. Within the router settings, you can Enable Remote Upgrade and Remote Administration of your Linksys router. To limit the risk of attack, make sure these settings are disabled. 7. Enable Logging for outgoing and incoming URLs or IP addresses for your Internet connection. On a regular interval, review these logs for suspicious activity. 8. Once you have enabled logging in step #7, download the Linksys LogViewer for easier administration of your incoming and outgoing logs. Remember to purge the logs on a regular interval to keep them manageable. 9. Once you have followed the above steps and hardened the settings on your router, visit Shields UP and run its battery of tests to check how secure your router looks to the outside world. 10. Don't rely on the Linksys router as your only means of defense. Install a desktop firewall on each PC that's connected to the Internet through the Linksys router. A free and effective desktop firewall is Zone Alarm. Furthermore, it is important to keep the desktop firewall up to date with the latest version in order to remain secure in the future.
5.In this order- Turn everything off, connect a network cable from the cable modem to the internet port on the wireless router. You should still have your wired pc connected to one of the ports on the router, that's ok. Turn on the cable modem and let all the lights come on and verify the internet is connected. Next turn on the wireless router and let it get it's connection to the cable modem. Wait about 30 seconds to make sure they are happy and ready to move on. 6.Go to your wired pc and turn it on, open a web browser and see if a web page loads. It should at this point and now you are ready to configure your wireless computer(s). 7.Turn on your wireless computer and see if it sees your network, if you turned off SSID broadcast it won't see the network but that doesn't mean it's not there. Got to your wireless card settings by entering the control panel and editing the connection settings for your network including the SSID and password information. Hit connect and all should be alive and kicking. I struggled for about 3 days (in spare time) before I had everything working properly. hope this help....pls rate

The router is not connected to the internet via Virgin media.

Your computer is connected only to the router wirelessly, that is why it says contact your internet supplier on how to connect the router successfully!

This is usually up address conflict. You will have to assign the wifi or lap top to different IP addresses. You have to refer to the modem manufacturers instructions or search on net / YouTube how to do this. It's too detailed to do it here I think.
