first off, can i just say that ive added one of my email addresses , so anyone can mail me. i have to say though, i wont tolerate abuse, lol.
ive worked for sky broadand technical support since they started, and id be happy to help in any way i can. unfortunatly, if its something to do with your account, youd need to call one of the help centres.
and adding to this forum is probably a sackable offence, but anyway. lol
i completely understand all the frustation that sky customers are going through, having to deal with frustated customers all day! all i can say is, im not a customer services rep, im tech support.
ill answer most questions posted.
oh, and btw, im doing this off my own bat, noones told me to.
let thefloodgates be opened!!!!!!!

Hi SkyTechnicalSupport, a quick question.
I've just got home and I had no connection although the LEDs on the router all looked fine. notived the SNR had dropped to 4.3 so I tried to reboot via the option under diagnostics but the router just ignored the command. I rebooted by powering the router off and back on, and it eventually reconnected, but I noticed that there is an extra LED between the tick and the wireless indicator and it wasn't untill that came on that the connection actually worked. Any idea what that extra LED signifies?

Can I use my own router?
I seem to be getting very poor wireless connection with router provided by sky. Is it possible to use a different router? If so, what model should I look into and how do I set it up?

My connection constantly drops losing my IP Address on the router needing a reboot to get it back, all the lights stay on the router as if I am still connect OK.

If you only have slowdowns and disconnections at PEAK times, you are very lucky................my system (single 3Ghz P4 PC, Intel MOBO, Ethernet wired, wireless turned off, short cabling, currently on the "Connect" service) will cease working anytime it's left alone for more than a few mins, the router just "goes to sleep", no activity on internet and "1" connection lights.
This PC was formerly in use at a different location on NTL BB via a Netgear router, where it performed perfectly. It's HDD drive has been replaced and completely built up from master CDs and internet updates/downloads for this location, so NO old files exist. It works perfectly on dial up within it's limits.
Ignoring the BB issue, the PC is fast, and 100%.
Power cycle router and it's all go again till the next time I pause for thought or go to get a drink......... AND just sometimes it does this even while being used. On day three I needed to do 30 plus (I lost count, even noting on paper!!) router reboots, starting use at 05:30 throughout daytime.
I'm getting approx 4Mb when it is working.
Numerous sites not accessible. (Assume BOGON filtering?)
Numerous sites accessible to Home Page, but login will not run, bounces back to login start. (Site "illegal" IP address rejection???)
Unable to set Email accounts. (told SKY issue)
Unable to change Email password. (told SKY issue)
Surely ALL things which simple basic testing before launch would have shown up...........???
Anyway, can we please have some basic feedback on what the known issues are so we are not running round like headless chickens wasting time trying to locally "fix" the currently unfixable?????????????????????????????????
