Great, thanks Ben. P2P doesn't bother me, but don't like the talk of throttling uploads... that's why I am paying the top tier (around where I live anyway)...

Cheers you two. Just checking... Virgin's box IS the router, right?

Also you can run n and g dongles on different computers at the same time and both work at their respective fastest speeds?

50mb - wifi dongle experiences

Hi folks, just ordered 50mb broadband. At the moment we have 54g dongles / adapters on our three machines. Will these still be fine, or should we get the newer n ones? Cheers!
