Comment Re:People seem confused about Virgin, let me clari (Score 2) 258

The Superhub is SLIGHTLY better, but still nothing on a dedicated router. But can you still plug in your own router? Nope, VM deliberately disabled the DHCP options within the HUB, meaning you have to rely on it (although a patch is coming that will enable "gateway" mode).

I have a SuperHub with VirginMedia and I use my own router: you need to set "DMZ Host" in the "SuperHub" advanced settings to the IP of your own router's WAN port. That means that your router's external IP looks like a private IP (in a different subnet from the LAN obviously) but that's not a problem in practice.

www.stackoverflow.com is a much better free alternative to expertSexchange.com.

They also regularly provide a complete database dump of all the questions and answers (http://blog.stackoverflow.com/category/cc-wiki-dump/) so there is no risk they'll steal the community effort like expertsexchange did...

If you didn't have to work so hard, you'd have more time to be depressed.
