  1. I've been told that it's possible that i may have viruses or trojans on my router. Is this possible? How would i get rid of them?

    No, this is extremely unlikely unless you installed some compromised firmware there yourself.

    Who told you that? As Nodsu said it would be highly unlikely.

    That is up there with the story, that a haggis is a sheep that has 2 normal legs on one side, 2 shorter legs on the other side, and can walk around the mountain in only one direction, to stop it from falling off!
