If you do call them, i'd be very interested to know what their response is!
Just going through that forum in more detail has also brought up the idea of possibly buying an ADSL filtered faceplate for the master socket. Not sure if that's worth a try as well or not.
So what are the implications of turning off UPnP (other than it hopefully solving the connectivity problem)?

you may have to manually configure some ports for various apps , that's all . Nothing for 'normal' surfing/email etc..

A router without the ability of using UPnP is quite dreadful if this is the case.
One poster asked what the implications of not using this is. Well more than one person cannot play the same game for example on the internet, i am not sure if it would also impact things like windows updates and the like. The problem can be bypassed, but it needs afair bit of technical knowledge not possessed by most users.

Well, if it gives us Internet access and a box that doesn't seize up every 15 minutes then I'm willing to give it a go, even if its only an interim solution.
A new box won't fix this so if we get a few positive reports on disabling UPnP then I'll go with that and keep the box until Sky can come up with an official fix.
This web site is terrific - I'd be tearing my hair out otherwise! Thanks and keep up the great work!

I'm wondering if it only raises it head when you have more than one pc connected as some get a problem and others don't

I'd like to be able to say I have two PCs connected, but considering that my upstairs PC can't detect the Wireless signal at all at the moment suggests that having two machines connected is unlikely to be a common factor.

Wouldn't bother with the face plate thing - the line syncs ok and logs in ok, doesn't it? Takes about 30 secs for each on mine. And then it's bullet proof for 15 mins ;-)
If you turn off upnp, you'll have to do manual port forwarding for upnp aware apps. Not sure if messenger audio/video will work without it.
Oh well. It is only 5 quid a month after all :-)

Ok. Let's just pretend for a minute that I have no idea how to do that or know which apps I have that use upnp...
