Virgin Media's blighted SuperHub NOW comes with extra squeal (oink)


Re: Netgear...

Maybe the problems are my own fault, I must have missed the line in the instructions for my Netgear Rangemax router that said 'Even when the device is placed in a well ventilated area, please reboot the device at least once every hour as failing to do so will cause the WiFi radio in this model to stop working.'

Or the instructions for my SC101 that must have said 'While we market this product as a Network Attached Storage device, please be aware that any file transfers to this device over a wired or wireless network that are larger than a single mp3 will likely fail'.


Thumb Down


Every piece of Netgear kit I've ever owned (either coming free from a broadband supplier or, to my detriment, being paid for out of my own pocket - SC101 I'm looking at you) has either failed within 6 months or been woefully inadequate to do the task it was bought for.

I am a Virgin broadband user, but thankfully as I'm only on 10mb I've not had to endure the SuperHub, as soon as I'd heard they were Netgear products this kind of news piece was only a matter of time.

Now Apple wants Samsung S III, Galaxy Notes off the shelves too

Thumb Down

From now on, I'll avoid Apple on principle.

I have an iPhone 4, iPad 1st gen, Macbook pro and a Samsung Galaxy Note (which is my main cellphone).

I like Apple devices a lot, but this is making me want to avoid future purchases of Apple purely on principle, as I feel their crusade to kill any competition with vague patents will damage the whole tech market and stifle future innovation/competition for consumers.

Not cool Apple. Not cool.
