Sorry for being a nob, does a modem router just work for virgin internet.....

If you look at the back of the router does it have a standard phone line going into it that way you will know if its a modem one

Did you check to see if it has the phoneline going into your existing router to make sure , to be honest I wouldn't blow a lot of cash on a router

That one you looked at would be no good for you then unless you buy a separate modem are you staying with plusnet?

Its a DSL or VDSL router you need something like the Netgear Nighthawk or Asus RT AC68U something along those lines

Maybe go into your local PC shop and ask there if unsure

Still not sure on what to buy....as of reading reviews on most of these high spec modem routers, alot of people having issues with them, this is the one I most like ASUS DSL-AC88U WiFi Modem Router - AC 3100, Dual-band

Its hard to tell a lot of things to consider for example location of router if it is next to any electrical device that can affect wifi performance,
Setting it up to the correct configuration for your needs
Do you require a VPN which will also affect performance
Pros & Cons with most of them to be honest
