On the netgear website click here it mentions a download for Vista drivers. Are you running Vista? Have you downloaded the Vista driver?

It sounds as if you have a very slow connection, you may need to contact Virgin Broadband support.

As a router isn't installed in a computer, either as software or as hardware, it *ISN'T* a driver issue. A router is a network device to which computers connect, either by ethernet cable or "wirelessly" using TCP/IP protocol.

If the problems you're experiencing are with a "wireless" connection, the most likely cause is interference with the radio signal. Try changing the channel number in the router's wireless settings, which might alleviate the problem.

click here is the exact page listing Vista drivers for the WGR614 (See the box under Technical Specification) Perhaps they mean Firmware Ugrade but however there are many variants of the WGR614 and you will need to know your exact version click here before you can download any update.

mgmcc's suggestion of changing the channel number is definitely worth trying. And if have an ethernet cable you might like to compare your speeds on wired and wireless.
