i have virgin broadband cable with speed up to 10mb.
i currently have it set up wirelessly via belkin n1 vision router and still have the ntlhome 120 modem. if i use the laptop through ethernet from modem straight to laptop i get speeds just above 5mb but if i use my wireless setup i get just above 3mb. if i got a newer modem would this improve my wireless connection speed, if so what what work with virgin and belkin n1 vision router, with thanks.

The modem will have to be supplied by Virgin and wireless will always be slower than ethernet.

see what your speeds say with this test as i think it is the one that virgin may ask you to useclick here

If your still using the old NTL: 120 Ambit modem you will need to call Virgin and ask them to upgrade it as they do not handle these speeds, they were designed for when Cable introduced 1mb/2mb broadband services.

If they agree to send you one you will recieve it in the post within 3/4 days.


Hope this helps.

The best place to buy a modem from is ebay. Here is one I just found on there for you...

If you do buy a modem off ebay, once yo recieve it you will need to call Virgin and get them to change the MAC address so that new modem will connect using your details.
