      Best Router?

      Hello all.

      I have just finished my call to sky in relation to setting up sky broadband, I was informed that I will be getting the Sky V2 Netgear DG934G router.

      I know that the Sky V1 Netgear DG834GT is at 104mbps and I am hoping that the one they are sending is the same speed or better.

      When I was talking to the sky rep and other customer services staff, they all informed me that it will be the one with 104mbps.

      Could you tell me what speed these routers are?

      Sky V2 Netgear DG934G
      Sky V2 Sagem F@ST2504

      many thanks

      Re: Best Router?

      Thanks for the reply.

      so basically, the routers that they will be sending me are less advanced then the one they quoted I'd be getting and at half the speed.

      Do you know if I can request that I receive the 104mbps router? or am I stuck with the technology that is old!?

      If that's the case they can shove it..

      again, thanks for the reply.

      no you can't, it's not given out new now - haven't been for well over a year now...

      and the 108Mbps wasn't a 'real' speed...it was used as something to patch draft-n coming out...54Mbps is the norm...

      Technically, yes you do, although a quick rummage round this site will highlight some "getarounds"
