Re: belkin g router and Virgin - account not accepted
Can you get a phone number?
the router may be block by Virgin Media, so that way people can't steal internet from it (that is if you have it unsecured) you may have to set it up with virgin over the phone, or have a local broadband provider try to set it up

This is a highly technical question. The technician that installs your fios can help you with an answer. If i'm not mistaken your new fios will come with a special router designed to change the data your recieving to acceptable format and communicate with your other devices. As I stated the tech who installs your fios can further instruct you as to the exact configuration. Hope this helps.
Try setting a static IP on your computer with the DNS provided by the modem- to set this up contact Virgin and have them help you setup a static IP(or if you know how to set static IP on the computer use the same IP information you getting from the DHCP).
Try changing the channel of the router to 1,9 or 11, and make sure that there is no cordless phone near the router or the wireless computer, this will help mionimize wireless interference. If this may not work you may want to adjust some settings on the advance wireless settings of the router like the beacon(set it to 50) and RTS/fragmentation(2304).
The model number of the Belkin router may be of interest if detailed configuration instructions are required and because there is the a report of an issue with a specific belkin router model on the Virgin Media site that appears to require a firmware update to work well with that particular internet service.
