      1080p stutter need new router? and sky attitude

      Hey

      Been reading and it says sky does not allow anything but their own routers, but they are only basic G routers, I knwo there is a work around, but my question is.

      If HD is a big thing now, and wireless is as well, why will sky only allow the Basic G router, and if you do change and they catch you, they can kick you off the network.

      Am I the only one that thinks this is wrong, holding people to ransom to say ( so what you cant stream HD stuff, we dont care)

      Something's not right, dont you agree ?

      The rights and wrongs of this have been discussed many times, but when it comes down to it, when you accept the conditions, that includes agreeing to use their router.

      I don't think anyone has been kicked off, or even warned for using their own router. I am very sure that Sky are aware that this is being done and have chosen to turn a blind eye to it. I doubt if anyone will have a problem unless they call Support and demand support for their own router.

      You can always buy your own! If you connect an N router to your Sky one it will work perfectly well without breaching the T&Cs.

      Or would you rather Sky charged an extra 100 connection fee to pay for the router? I'll make my own choice, thanks v much.
