      If you do not have the most recent public release then the Sky Hub SR101 will update its firmware in due course. The most recent fixes aren't too worrying and the older version shipped with some is fine.

      I'm beginning to see a trend here, increasing by 3mb a day. As today its up to 10mb.

      As you noted the noise margin has decreased a little. The router also seems to have updated over night which must be why it rebooted.

      Has your firmware been upgraded? This is the only reason you would get a reboot. Normally the router only resyncs with the exchange in the early hours of the morning and does not do a full reboot. Nothing to worry about so far.

      I can't provide details at this point, but nothing too substantial for now. When it is released to the public I hope that we will be able to let people know.

      predictably 13mb today. with a wireless download speed of 11.5mb at the moment.
      Also the noise margin is now very low. I noticed most peoples noise seems to be around 6, so maybe mine is close to reaching its peak. maybe squeeze another 3mb out of it tomorrow.

      doesnt seem like theres much interference from other wifi as inssider doesnt pick any up. it used two pick up two others but they must be a very weak signal. the sky hub seems to change channel each day

      There is still room for more improvement. The new DLM settings can get the noise margin down to 3 db, if the line is good enough.
