    Hi,
    I have just got back online after 2 weeks of no internet!!
    Virgin media told me there was a problem with the server but it is now fixed. My desktop (windows xp) is now working fine until we try to connect our d-link wireless router to the modem, and then we cannot connect to the internet.
    The d-link worked fine before, so I can't work out why it won't work now.
    I have been back in touch with Virgin media and they say to have the router checked out, but we have had it a year with no problems until they
    messed up with the server.
    Hope I have explained enough for somebody to help!!

    Hi and welcome.

    Once you connect the router, power everything down (modem and router), wait 5 minutes, then restart. Restarting computers may be necessary afterwards as well.
