      Sky Router

      I have previously solved my ADSL problems involving drop-outs (at random and when a phone call was made) by replacing my router for Netgear DG834G and getting the ADSL Nation XF-1e filter.

      The issues are described in this thread:

      Ring-wire removal and NTE5 faceplate

      However I am now considering switching to Sky Broadband and note that they supply their own router. Does anyone know what make and model the Sky Router is supplied and whether it is likely to be any good?

      I have spoken to Sky and they inform me that I'm not allowed to use my (excellent + working) Netgear router. Does anyone know if any action will be taken against me if I decide to use my own router?

      Re: Sky Router

      The current router being shipped to new Sky Broadband customers is the Sagem F@ST 2504N. It is rated to WiFi n (144Mbps WiFi).

      With regards to using your own router, currently Sky doesn't punish people for using their own routers, but it may do in the future.

      As is often mentioned though, there are many members who do use their own routers, including myself.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms
