      No although some sky employees have informed us that some of the staff are presently trialling an N based router.

      I have an N router for my second bb connection with virgin 50mb - can't see what the fuss is about tbh - I can't even get wireless 20 foot away from it downstairs.
      I can get wireless tho from my sagem sky router into the loft...

      I used a Netgear DG834n for 2 years before moving to Sky and ill be honest even n to n connections were not earth shattering. all the network cards reported between 200 and 300mbps connections but the throughput was no where near that, moving files around was tedious so i ended up moving to homeplugs.

      Despite my worrys i am much happier with the Sagem router Sky supplied me with, it is rock solid.

      The DG834N is a pretty crap router in terms of performance and stability though
      My D-Link N router does provide the full transfer speed usually
