      Exclusive Pictures of the New Sky Router

      Following on from our story a few weeks ago, regarding the New Sky Router, we have had these exclusive pictures sent to us.



      The New Sky Router is about to be trialled by Sky Staff, and we have received these pictures that have been sent out to approx 100 staff, invited to take part.



      Rumoured to made by both SAGEM and NETGEAR and they are likely to both be packaged the same.

      The size looks approx. the same as the current Netgear DG834GT, and as you can see a lot more aesthetically pleasing.

      No extra features that we know of, apart from what looks like the welcomed addition of a power button.



      There are no details on the length of the testing and we will update with any details as soon as we have them.

      Does look like the Sagem 2400/2404.

      Nope, but soon I would assume, as soon as the staff get the router.

      I quite like the look of it actually!!

      Anyone know how to take a Netgear apart, I may just spray it black to match the rest of my PC lol.

      Also, I like the way there is no visible Antenna. Will snuggly fit under the Black HD box.

      Is it my eyes? I thought it looked a greyish colour with a black front.

      It doesn't really look anything special to me, and I like my little ariel on my router.
