    I am pleased to report that the desktop is now connecting reliably to the Superhub, and downloading / uploading at decent speeds. Hence I am going to mark this thread as solved.

    SOLVED Sony VPCJ1 desktop poor connection via TP Link TL PA101 to Virgin Superhub

    Good evening, I spoke to Virgin support and after trying a few things they concluded that it was probably my powerline adapter (PA) at fault ('given up the ghost' was the technical description used). I did a speed test on my existing PA (TP Link) connection (from my garden 'shed') to the...

    SOLVED Sony VPCJ1 desktop poor connection via TP Link TL PA101 to Virgin Superhub

    OK, I have updated the Marvel Ethernet Controller successfully. At first that didn't make any difference, even after a couple of re-boots. (Oddly, it was able to connect to a wireless network.) But a day later I'm finding that the computer is now connecting to the internet successfully again...

    SOLVED Sony VPCJ1 desktop poor connection via TP Link TL PA101 to Virgin Superhub

    Hello, So, it could be worth upgrading my TP Link gear then, and make sure it's Windows 7 compatible? Happy to do that, but could you read the below first and let me have your thoughts? Just back from holiday to find that my Sony VPCJ1 desktop is now dropping the internet connection (or...

    SOLVED Sony VPCJ1 desktop poor connection via TP Link TL PA101 to Virgin Superhub

    Good afternoon, My Sony VPCJ1 desktop is running Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit). It is located in my garden office so is too far away from the modem to use wireless. Instead I connect it to the internet by using a TP Link (model TL PA101) which plugs into an ordinary power socket, and that...

    SOLVED My Sony Vaio Laptop is not connecting to Virgin Superhub

    PROBLEM SOLVED Hello there, Before I saw your latest message I was browsing in the Virgin Community boards and came across folk who had experienced the same problem. The following solution was posted by 'paralegal-eagle' and seemed to have worked for several people, so I tried it (substituting...

    SOLVED My Sony Vaio Laptop is not connecting to Virgin Superhub

    Thanks. I followed these instructions, which all worked fine up to 'point to the flash drive netathrx.inf file'. I could only point to the folder in which this file was located (along with the other 7 Atheros files). I think it installed correctly anyway however. The Device Manager shows that I...

    SOLVED My Sony Vaio Laptop is not connecting to Virgin Superhub

    PS - I have just discovered that what I thought was the laptop model number (PCG-61211M) is just the chassis model number. The laptop is actually model number VPCEA1S1E.

    SOLVED My Sony Vaio Laptop is not connecting to Virgin Superhub

    Hello TM - thank you for replying; you sorted out my Samsung SCX-4100 a few years back, and it's good to see that you are on the (new) case! OK, so I downloaded the driver you stipulated (from www.atheros.cz), and extracted the 8 files on to the flash drive. I then put the drive into the Vaio...

    SOLVED My Sony Vaio Laptop is not connecting to Virgin Superhub

    Good afternoon. My Sony Vaio Laptop, model number PCG-61211M, is running Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit). Until last week it connected to my Virgin wireless network without any problems. This week we upgraded to a Virgin Superhub. The Laptop reports (in Control Centre / Network Settings) that it...

    SOLVED Samsung SCX-4100 will not scan

    Apologies - I should have added to that last post that I did follow ALL of the original advice about the Windows Fax and Scan program (ie, I did make sure that this feature was checked as available using the control menu / programs and features). Cheers.

    SOLVED Samsung SCX-4100 will not scan

    Samsung SCX-4100 Good morning. Just wanted to reiterate my gratitude to the pair of advisers early on in this thread. My samsung is still scanning successfully. I did try using the Windows Fax and Scan (WFS) program (in accessories) as advised, but that didn't work. Error message was 'No...

    SOLVED Samsung SCX-4100 will not scan

    Thanks to both of you for these helpful replies, and apologies for my slow follow-up. I needed to find a clear afternoon in order to follow your instructions, as I find working with computers quite stressful. I have today downloaded the scanner driver successfully and the machine is now...

    SOLVED Samsung SCX-4100 will not scan

    I am running Windows 7 64 bit and I have attached to my computer a Samsung SCX-4100 multi-function device (printer, scanner, copier). I have installed the recommended driver from the Samsung Website and the device now prints and photocopies fine. But it won't scan. I have installed the correct...
