      Another BT Router - any from SKY

      I have noticed BT Broadband have released another WiFi (in mind) router.

      Does anyone know if Sky plan on updating their routers at any time. My router is a few years old and would happily use it as a discount towards a new router.

      Sky have now got an N router (Sagem) but if you're out of warranty (1 year) then you'd have to pay for a new one. No idea on cost of specifying the N one though

      Sky has recently started shipping a slightly improved router - SagemCom 2304n. Unfortunately is isn't fully WiFi n capable - max 75mbps.

      Another router has been approved but hasn't started shipping - SagemCom 2504N. Details are sketchy at this point but is does meet the WiFi n specifications (Certificate issued).

      If you search this forum using the model numbers you'll find more info.

      There area lot of complaints regarding the 2304n. I wouldn't try getting one for the present if your is working.
