      So far so good..

      Router arrived this morning and have been online all day. Getting a stable 8 meg which is twice as much as I got on nildram and they were costing 25 a month.

      No dropouts and a good ping when playing online games.

      All in all I'm well happy (early days I know)

      Just like to add that I've had no problem whatsoever getting into the sky portal or setting up new e mail addresses and outlook express. All have worked perfectly.

      The only problem I encountered through the whole migration process from Nildram was the "no router problem" That was sorted out today.

      The portal can be a little slow to connect to but every time I've tried it works.

      Will post again in a few days with an update.
