      But just cause we want it and can use it doesn't mean that we have a hope of getting it

      edit: I stand corrected, seems people are reporting it is N wifi. Sky sure like to keep us in the dark about this ****, don't they?
      It appears that there are two new routers that are coming out with similar numbers.

      Sagemcom F@st2304n - not fully WiFi n, but better than WiFi g & being shipped to some customers

      Sagemcom F@st2504n - WiFi n certified, but not yet shipping to customers

      I've seen a few of the new sagems needing replaced due to not even gaining sync right out of the box.

      Re: Heads up

      Pretty much the same as the issue that i have seen then.

      Starting to look like a rather large amount.

      Maybe its just a rather large dodgy batch. Here is to hoping anyway

      Re: Heads up

      I've had so many calls regarding problems with the new Sagem routers, CST agent was telling me that they're being told to run firmware upgrade with them and that's only been a success for him once out of all the calls he's had transferred with them.

      Re: Heads up

      What's the deal with the routers not being sent out in time for new customers ?
      Some have been waiting weeks after their lines have been activated.

      Short answer: stock shortage.
