      Personally, I would do everythng in my power to stop this happening, ring Sky and tell them you do not want the line rental or want to opt out of their SVBN system if they will allow it.
      I do have Line Rental with Sky, I have done for a long time.

      Yeah everything seems to have gone through okay now

      O2s target SNR is 6dB yeah. Whenever I rebooted the router with O2 my SNR would always be 6dB to begin with.

      I've switched back to my own router too. I've given up with the Sky Router. The Wireless is just not good enough :/ It drops out every now and again.

      I've also checked this morning (since switching routers) and my sync is different:

      Downstream: 9893kbps
      Upstream: 945kbps
      Attenuation Down: 41db
      Attenuation Up: 23.8db
      SNR Down: 7.0db
      SNR Up: 14.2db

      I take it this is as good as I am going to get?

      I have the same issue with the O2 Wireless Box - keeps turning itself off!!

      Might need to get a new one, all my PCs have Wireless-N in them so may as well make the most of them!

      As for you, downstream this is probably it but there's more to be had on the upstream...

      I can live with the downstream, it's not too far away from what I had

      Hopefully just teething problems, but I have had a few pages time out and a quick refresh brings them back to life :/

      I never ONCE had to call O2 because of issues, everything was perfect. I was just not willing to pay 15 for what I wanted, seeing as though I canceled the mobile account with them.

      However, youtube videos appear to buffer much quicker with Sky. Weird.
