    Hey folks,

    I recently pre ordered Virgins 50Mb internet service. The lacky on the phone informed me that a shiney new Wireless N router will be on its way to me as thanks for paying out the ass for their service.

    I asked him what model of router they would be sending but he was stumped at my question. Has anyone here recieved theirs yet? If so could you tell me what make (Im assuming netgear?) and model of wireless router you recieved?

    I ask as I also have a few wired devices (360, PS3, Gaming PC etc) next to where my modem/router is and I would like to keep them wired. I'm just wondering if the router they will send me will have the standard 4 ethernet ports at the back so I can connect to the router via wires as well.

    Cheers folks,

    Mr.Tea b:smashin:

    I believe it is a Netgear. If you have a lack of ports you can always put a switch in place before it hits the router
