      38 Hours and Counting

      What's going on, my sky router has now been up for 38 hours and still going strong !!

      TOUCH WOOD

      LOL, first time ever past 24 hours since I got the service.

      I do notice that my sync speed is creeping down mind you, was over 8000 kbps at first but now down to 7360 kbps, which as you know pushed up the Noise Margin (7.4db to around 9db), so possibly why it's a little more stable.

      Not noticed and slowdown in "surf" speed so long may it continue !!

      I have just gone 5 weeks and one day (goodness knows how many hours that is !) without a disconnection that had a brief one on Sunday evening.

      LOL lasted till about midnight and then reset !!

      Is all still a bargain for a fiver a month, just a shame if I set up with my own version of the SAME router with the latest Netgear Firmware my connection stays up for ever !! Hopefully they will eventually sort this out but it's taken them long enough so far.
