      Different Sky Router

      Hi Guys
      I am not very good when it comes to routers and networking
      I have the SkY SR router not sure the number......my problem is i have to many things
      running on Wifi so have to reboot the router quite a bit
      Is there another Sky router that can run more then 7 things?
      Or could you recommend a normal router that can do the job.

      Both the SR101 and SR102 are able to work with more than 7 WiFi devices at the same time.

      Although I hammered the SR101 I had during the testing as much as I could, I didn't have 7 WiFi devices hammering it at the same time though. Saying this, I did have seven or more WiFi devices connected to it at the same time.

      Thank you for you reply
      The router just seems to struggle with all the devices running at the same time
      and i have to keep rebooting it every week or so it just loses connection
      reboot and its fine for a while.

      Re: Different Sky Router

      Could you answer a few questions please...


      • What sort of activity are you typically doing on your connection?
      • Your profile indicates that you have the white SR101, is this still the case?
      • Your profile indicates that you have Sky Broadband Unlimited, is this still the case?
      • If you are on Sky Broadband Unlimited, are you thinking about upgrading to a Fibre product in the near future?
      • Could you post your router's connection stats?
      • Which device/s refuse to connect?
      • Are you able to access the Sky Hub's GUI when it 'stops working'? (i.e. can you navigate to 192.168.0.1)


      Sorry for the questions. Hopefully they can be useful and I'll pass on the responses to the developers.
