How to Set Up Wireless on Virgin Broadband
Set up your wireless network to access the Internet. (laptop 9 image by Harvey Hudson from

Virgin Media provides hubs for its customers to set up wireless networks in their home and access broadband Internet. This hub receives a signal from the phone jack and broadcasts a wireless signal throughout the house that is accessible by multiple computers at a time. Along with providing wireless access, the hub includes ports that allow you to connect computers to the network with a cable. This allows computers without a wireless network card to access the network.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Plug the power cord into an electrical socket, then plug the other end into the back of your Virgin Media hub.

  2. 2

    Connect one end of the coaxial cable to the back of the hub, then connect the other end to the cable jack on the wall.

  3. 3

    Click the wireless network icon in the system tray at the bottom of the screen. This displays all of the wireless networks available to your computer.

  4. 4

    Select the Virgin Media network, then click "Connect."

  5. 5

    Enter the network security key to gain access to the network. The key is printed on the side of the hub and is labelled "Passphrase."

  6. 6

    Activate your account if you are connecting to the hub for the first time. Go to the activation page on Virgin Media's website to activate the account. A link is provided in Resources.

Tips and warnings

  • Position the wireless hub in a central location in the house and away from large metal objects and walls to extend the wireless range.
