      Flashing & Speed

      Hey everyone,

      We have been on Sky Max for about 2 months now and my speed increase and decrease between 5-8mb.

      I rang sky when it first dropped to 4 and they said it was due to DLM and he increased my speed to 8mb there and then.

      Now it drops from 5-8 and DLM has stopped.

      Is there any solution for this? It's plugged into the master test socket with nothing else connected.

      Also if i flash my routers firmware with a NETGEAR firmware or another custom firmware can Sky ban me or remove my access?

      Thanks for any help.

      regarding the flashing - yes they can, but they haven't as yet so that's you risk...

      and without your stats we can't see what's going on...

      Apart from IANTE's comment, flashing the router is very unlikely to increase the connection speed. Post your stats.
