      Upgrade of Firmware 2.0.2.44

      Just had my internet bottom out for 45mins.

      Whilst browsing the net a page came up to say Sky were upgrading and it would take a few minutes. Then it would reboot automatically.

      Then the speed was lost, the Noise margin shot up into the millions.

      How many of you have had this upgrade already or are still waiting. I thought for a moment there it was all going downhill.

      In saying that...I've had a healthy 16meg since it was installed. Call it fear on my part. LOL

      I found out from the router that I was upgraded on Thursday. Apart from the downstream attenuation doubling from 15.5 to 31, I have not noticed any difference really. Speeds are more or less the same, and the uptime is similar. LCP continues to go down from time to time, and usually it is during the early hours of the morning. Unable to tell whether this is due to Sky maintenance. Important thing is I have not been losing any service during the day. So I am happy with the service, and no complaints at this time.

      Really happy with the service since my last post and am noticing a difference. The link has been up and stable for over 286 hours. The router has also been up for over 355 hours. This upgrade seems to be working for me. Long may it continue. :-)

      V2.02.44 arrived 48 hours back, connection definitely more stable. Since the DML debacle have connected at best 2976 kbps/416 kbps but only for a short while am. Afternoon & evening frequent reductions to around 2300 kps.

      Since update holding 2976 kbps for 24 hours plus with downstream noise reducing from 9 to 3 over 12 hours. - as others upstream attenuation is double.

      If your connection is stable with a noise margin of 1db then that's very impressive

      Yes I agree but in the past has often even gone negative and still loaded ok until finally giving up and reconnecting. Yesterdays readings were after 22 hours with a gradual noise decline from starters @ 9.

      Must say very happy with the change, why so long Sky? - these are today’s readings after left on overnight:
