      The one NAT open and one NAT moderate/strict is a well known problem.

      The only way to fix it is to use certain types of router (last time I looked there were 3 that did it and all very expensive)

      Since the ones Sky supply aren't on this list, it's something you need to live with.

      Also if you are rebooting the router at various times of the day your synch speed will be changing, due to local noise and the router will synch at the best possible speed at that time.

      When I was with Sky I had a 2 meg/sec movement between the morning and late night.

      Any idea on what routers they are? I'd be more than happy to fork out for a new one if it allowed them both to be open all the time. I am currently running a
      Belkin F5D8635-4 v1 Router.

      This is most probably a stupid question, but I have 2 routers (
      Belkin F5D8635-4 v1 Router + a Sky router) If I plugged two filters (http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/5675173/ADSL-Filter-Splitter-With-Cable/Product.html?ptsl=1&ob=Price&fb=0&&_$ja=tsid:11518 |cc:|prd:5675173|cat:Accessories) into the the plug socket (one directly into the wall and then one into the other) and hooked up each router to a separate filter, would that get around the NAT issue or not (or would it even work)?
