      It's a very stable router. I love it.

      That's good news , wonder if I'll get one.

      I'd be interested to know the firmware version btw.

      Is it the same as the V2 one, ie 2640s, or is it an updated model?

      It is a 2640S, sporting 1.11 FW. Looks like I'll be good to get the broadband username/password out of it as well then - should the need arise.

      Extract your router's log in details asap. Copy & paste the details into a text file and save it somewhere safe.

      You never know when you may require them and if Sky will update the firmware & prevent you from doing it in future.

      Yup that's a job for tonight. Would have last night, but the Canadian GP kept me entertained until 1030PM

      And what a race that turned out to be. Most exciting one for a long time.

      Oh yes

      I couldn't believe it when Brundle was talking about the "2 hour limit"

      I was sure that Vettel would have been given a win again...

      To see him run wide on the last lap, was an utter delight.

      Not that I begrudge him the win, he's a very talented and I like him a lot, but it is nice to see someone else win for a change (coincidentally, I felt exactly the same about Schumacher back in his glory days... I loved him as a driver, but even I found it got a bit boring at times!)

      Hmphh... You could have extracted the log in details during the 2 hours when the race was Red Flagged!

      P.S. Bring back Damon Hill
