      agreed it looks bigger. I wouldn't mind testing one for wireless strength and Upnp etc. On the whole im happy with the netgear router although I would like to have the new one.

      GUI is miles better!!
      Im happy with my little netgear one, the only snag is the GUI for me personally.

      Re: Exclusive Pictures of the New Sky Router

      I like the white Netgear router we've got now, it looks really nice.
      I had and still have the Thomson SpeedTouch which is back and hated it.

      I'm surprised to read that Sagem are supposed to be good as all the Sagem stuff I've seen-mobiles-have been crap. Infact it's a name I don't think I'd trust, so to read the new sky router will be a Sagem has kinda put me off it-plus it's awful looks.
      There again I'll not be getting one anyway with already subscribing.

      Why are Sky bringing yet another router out?? they've just brought the second generation one out not long since.

      Yep, the GUI looks very much like the Sky Website?

      Wonder if in future firmwares the Netgear will have it's GUI updated? I can imagine in the future, now it looks like the website, it will show adverts or links to your Sky Account etc?

      The V2 routers are being beta tested now, rumoured made by Netgear and Sagem. The pictures of the blackish / grey are a Netgear V2.
