      Angry So slow!

      Web pages upload quickly at first but after a couple of days it becomes snail pace. So I reboot the router and suddenly everything is fast again. A few days later it's slow again.

      Is it my Macbook Core 2 Duo or the router modem?

      It's the router. Hopefully, when Sky finally release the new firmware for the router, this will be one of the things that gets fixed.

      You don't it will be sent to all routers that require it by Sky when it is ready for release.

      Re: So slow!

      It will happen during 2008 - my sources say that it won't be too much longer either. They've got to get the detail right or there'll be a lot of bricked routers out there! The logistics are immense. Its weird how some routers work just fine and others are just hell on earth. That Phase 1 firmware really is a pile of poo.
