      I have never had a problem with it and think it works fine. I think people don't like the thought of using something because they have to and create fake faults with it so the can get out of using it.
      Fake faults lol are you mad read the forum i would give my right arm for the drop outs and slow downs to be fake

      Cannot agree with that

      I had a Netgear D834GT (non Sky one) when I was on F2S and UPnP worked flawlessly. However on the Sky router I cannot use it, it locks my Internet and MSN etc etc off. There is definitely a problem as such.

      Cannot disagree - that is fact



      Yep and as soon as they fix it the less hassle for everyone



      There is definitely an issue and I am lead to believe that the router firmware is been beta tested and has fixed the issues that we are aware of. However how long it takes to roll out to everyone is anyone's guess



      The new firmware is not available and so anyone flashing their routers are doing it with a non-Sky endorsed one.
      Cheers nice to know they are working on it and i hope its soon after all sky have a great product if they get it sorted.
      I have been with sky for years it must be about 16 yrs i think and they have been great, so thats why after the first 5 days and the drop outs i decided to stick with them tbh.
      I just hope they get this sorted and get it out
