Basically Im moving into my house at uni next week and ive gotta sort out tinternet. Basically, at any one point, theres a possibility that 6 of us could be using the internet at one time...So, I need to know what router to get? and whos the best ISP? Plus Im also still gonna be ending careers on FIFA so it needs to be able to handle having the 360 going aswell....what you reckon???Safety.

6 people on 1 connection?Surely you want Virgin 50meg. No throttling.

Aye. This is what Im thinking tbh. But basically people wont really be using it that much, and there will never really nd truly be 6 people on at once. But still, need a router....

We had BT Internet with the home hub thing at my house (there was only 3 of us there) but it worked like a charm.

Thing is for him to even use the HomeHub then it means he'll have to get a BT connection.Which is pants.So the only way to fix this is get the ISP 1st then recomendations of a router will come if the one you get with your ISP is sh*t.

dont u mean "without havin a pc/latop plugged into the ROUTER"?IF so then u should just be able to search for wi-fi connections on ur laptop n find ur router, then type in the security key that was given with it

Ok, ffs this is winding me up now.Right, basically, the internet is cool when I have the ethernet going from my router to my laptop, but if Im using it wirelessly then it dont work, or it will be intermittant.It will disconnect from the internet but will still be connected to the network and says It has a full signal.
