Virgin media have put my speed up to 120mbs. My NIC is currently set at 100mbs Full Duplex. My D-Link 615 has the Virgin Media Superhub connected (with the built in router disabled, as the Superhub has no WakeOnLAN option).
The specification for the D-Link 615 states it has a 100base
When I changed the NIC to 1.0Gbs the link says disabled. Is that because my router can only go up to 100mbs? and if I wanted to achieve the 120mbs I would need to disconnect the router and enable routering on the Virgin Superhub?
Thanks in advance for the input.

I worked through the issue and found a workaround for those interested!
In short I turned the old router into an access point, enable the web gui so now I can just access the gui from the internet and manually wake the PC. Not as elegant as using a true WOL Internet magic packet, but it did save me from having to buy a new router!Go to the full post
