I just got a Blackberry Torch and tried it out at home - which is a known weak signal area. I mostly get no cell signal in and around the house.

Virgin suggested setting up the phone to access the internet directly via the wireless router (and hence give access to email) . I have set up the Torch to be a wireless network member OK. However the Torch does not automatically connect through to the internet as it is supposed to. I suspect my DI-524 router is too old and propose to replace it. Any thoughts on the likelihood of this being a solution?
