Connecting wired Virgin Broadband through third-party WiFi Router
Well OK, the sequencial activation works for wired connection. But how about wireless? I have Dynamode R-ADSL-C4W-G1. I can get my laptop conected to the Internet if I switch the modem on first and than plug ethernet cable to laptop from router and switch it on. It doesn't work if I switch the router on without laptop plugged in. It also doesn't want to work wit wi-fi. Is connecting Virgin b. by wi-fi without THEIR OWN equippment at all possible??? It's the second router I'm trying and was thinking about trying with Link-Sys. Thoise ones have never failed me before, buit somehow I can't fany any for sale in UK.

The RAS PPPoE driver file "raspppoe.sys" found under c:\windows\system32\drivers folder seems to be the root cause of the problem. Fortunately, we can workaround the problem simply by renaming the original raspppoe.sys file to something like "raspppoe_orig.sys" copying a working file from a Windows Vista system.
Hi, we have two ways to connect to broadband, via wired or wireless, at the device manager please do check if the LAN drivers are enabled, if enabled, via wired connection, simply put the RJ45 jack from LAN port of your router to LAN port of your notebook, if configuration is already set in your Router LAN, it will just automatically connect. If connecting via wireless press wifi button to activate wifi connection then windows will pop for your access credentials. simply put the password for your connection once the name of the site displayed.
Well the best router for your connection type would be WNR2000. Even Virgin media recommend this router for their 20 and 50 Meg connection. I am pretty confident that this router will meet your requirement with this ISP connection.
you still have to use the modem from virgin, mine is setup the same but with a different router, you have the virgin rounter connected to the wireless router then the belkin wireless rounter connectes to you pc instead of the virgin router, your gonna have to log onto the router and setup some security to make the connection safe from others using it.
Hi fozzy211 - Please don't rate this 'til were finished. You've got two things going on. You said it's telling you to check the cables and then you say it's saying the router isn't from Verizon. Is it both? Are the cables hooked up correctly to your knowledge? We can fool Verizon's system. Let me know if you actually have two problems. For now I would only hook up one pc via wired until it's working. I'll await your response. Thanks.
Cable modems and routers must be turned on in a specific way.
First, unplug both the router and modem. Next, plug the ethernet cable from the modem, into the cable router, and unplug the cable from the modem to the computer.
Next, turn on the modem, and wait for all of the lights to stay static (usually there's 4 lights, the main one we're interested in, is the status light).
Next, plug in and turn on your router.
You should now be able to access the router and configure it for your internet connection.
