      Linksys AM200 & Sky

      Ok I just tried one of these modems instead of the Sky router!
      My Sync rate went from 1887kbps to 2686kbps and upload remained the same. I'm really impressed by this massive increase in speed and so far the modem is very stable and drops the connection a lot less than the Sky one! Has anyone else noticed similar improvements when swapping from the SKY (V1) router?

      Interesting post.

      As someone that has suffered nothing but problems from Sky's modified hardware I am tempted to try what you've done. I'll see if I can find a spare router anywhere, it may cure the problem that Sky can't (see my signature) and would be nice to get extra speed too.


      Still NO solution from Sky! Still not fixed!
