    Sky Trial V1 Firmware for Netgear DG834GT

    This is a discussion on Sky Trial V1 Firmware for Netgear DG834GT within the Sky news and announcements forums, part of the SkyUser Announcements category; it seems sensible to not release it until all the results of testing & ironing out bugs has been obtained....

      If they're waiting until the firmware is bug free, then it could be a very long time coming.

      Anyone working in the software business will know how these tend to pan out. If you plot a graph of the number of currently identified bugs in the software, against time, you usually see a large number of bugs at the beginning, which then falls rapidly in an exponential curve. But the curve doesn't level out at zero, it tends to level out at slightly above zero, with the developers fixing bugs at the same low rate that the testers find them.

      It's not an easy thing to do, but in the end, you have to set a more realistic criterion for making a general release, something like "no major bugs, and no more than 5 minor bugs". Otherwise the software may never be released.

      sounds like a good idear for a poll

      "how long before we get the firmware update for the V1 Router"

      1) in the next month
      2) in the next 2 months
      3) in the next 6 months
      4) before the london olympics
      5) i belive the FW to be a figment of sky's imagination

      I really do not see the relevance of all the smilies and that particular quote?

      I am with AOL. In view of me buying the DG834GT myself, they only offer a Backup Service for the DG834G that they provide and not the GT. Do they know something that SKY do not?

      So where is this alleged new firmware? Why the delay Sky? Do we assume a problem or is this all hot air? I will be voting with my feet soon!

      No only that they only supply support for there supplied router much the same as Sky.

      I can promise you it ain't hot air. The only reason it is not being rolled out is purely because it cannot be ready for everyone's use.
