      V2 router tests

      Sky have sent out the new V2 routers for one day only to new customers as part of a field test to see how the routers perform in the real world,

      What we don't know is if the test involves the Netgear or the Sagem versions or if it is a mix of both makes of V2 routers, This means that Sky are one step closer to rolling out the new V2 routers as standard for new customers hopefully this side of Christmas.

      We do have unofficial exclusive access to one and will post pictures and a short review of it hopefully this weekend.

      Re: V2 router tests

      I'm using the V2 atm, seems simple enough to use, uPnP is working fine, wireless strength is better than my old Draytek. How reliable it is only time will tell - 29mins uptime so far!

      edit: forgot to mention it's the Netgear!

      Re: V2 router tests

      Assuming that these trials of the V2 router(s) are successfull, And SKY start to send them out to all new customers. How would an exsiting customer go about obtaining the newer version?

      I ask because I am a new customer (2 weeks or so) & I am expeariencing the same CRC problems that James67 is having with his Netgear router with the current sky firmware loaded.

      The new router may sort out these issues.

      Getting on for 12hrs uptime and nothing sinister to report as yet. There were 3 computers on earlier (1 wired, 2 wireless) and I didn't notice anything unusual

      I want a new router V2 *stamps and screams*. I have emailed the Sky broadband team to ask how I can get one or how much it will cost as I am a current Sky Broadband user.
