      I'm sure many would find your report very useful. I know the nildram users were having no joy with this game.

      Well, got Max, connected on Friday. Started WOW and all OK, but I noticed that latency was very high, and growing. Rose to about 3000ms and became unplayable. Checked WOW forums and decided to do the port forwarding thing with the router. Seemed to have solved my problems.

      Did a ZG run last night. Four hours with solid connection and latency never got higher than 125ms. So looks good to me.

      Further info. Got a couple of very large lag spikes last night (2000ms). Also had to reboot the router when it disconnected me and wouldn't reconnect. Not good in a AQ20 run. So not quite as good news, but not unplayable. Hope it doesn't continue like that though.

      After my initial and frustrating problems with Sky BB it all seems to have stabalised and my connection is now at 5.9 MB. I play WOW and build graphics for many MMORPG's so I undertake loads of downloads, uploads of graphics and music for my job. I have to say that apart from downloading the update patches (which I need to set the router up for) sky performs adequately for game playing.

      Now does anyone know what the firmware update is for on the Sky Installation CD?

      When my connection is not playing up, WoW is fine for me also. I normally have around 100-125 latency which is fine.
