      REplaced sky router with TP link - attentuaton much lower

      Didn't even know this was possible? Thought this was purely a line property

      Attenuation decreased from 19.2 to 13.9. (Saying that connection decreased from 53Mb to 51Mb).

      Speed in general seems better and wifi is tons better.

      VERY easy to get working. Just select sky in setup, enter random user/password, set up wifi, job done. Excellent router.

      That doesnt make sense to me. If your attenuation is lower the faster your connection will be which is the way it is . The fact you said your ds sync has dropped would indicate to me further investigation.. the lower the attainable the better the ds sync rate will be
