      How the ****** do I install virgin wireless router.

      I have just had my Virgin Media package installed today. However I cannot work out how to connect the wireless router.

      The engineers set up a static modem with an internet connection to the laptop via ethernet cable, but would not install the wireless router.

      I am thinking that I need to insert the ethernet cable from the static modem into the internet port of the wireless router and use another ethernet cable from the PC slots in the wireless router to the laptop.

      Am I doing this right. Is there anything else I need to do!

      Thanks in advance

      Have you tried ringing Virgin or checking their website/forum etc, this is a forum for helping Sky Users, the setup is different.

      Welcome to VM customer service!

      What you are doing is correct. The router will be on 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1, I don't remember which.
