Is it possible to swap your device out for a spare router? Im not sure about
virgin media as I think you have the cable modem and then the wireless
router connected to that, or is it all in one unit? It sure sounds like the
router rather than your netbook. What happens is your run large downloads on
other machines using the connection?
