      I must stress that this information has not been given to us in an official capacity and may or not be true.
      Unofficially, this info has since been denied and that the rollout is for a staff trial only.
      So it would appear the second quote was the correct one.....

      Re: V1 Router FW Rollouts?

      I would imagine that Sky would be wanting to roll out the new firmware in stages. Having 100,000 "borked" routers would be terrible, but a million "borked" routers would be a disaster. If they are in fact rolling it out in stages, then I'd imagine Sky won't want to make too much of a song and dance of it, otherwise they'll be inundated with people asking for their router to be upgraded.

      But of course, that'll happen anyway, as soon as a non-staff forumer reports getting the new firmware…

      Surfing as normal and then about 3am I was only able to access google and its related pages - I can get on other wireless connections so I'm guessing my router has been updated and it's not working right? I'll keep reading this opendns thing but I'm not very savvy, hopefully whatever it is will work!

      update... ok, so maybe this isn't to do with a router update, no idea - it says firmware version is V1.02.28 in my stats... tried a router reboot, put it back to its original settings, went onto opendns and put in the preferred dns server figure and the alternate one into the internet protocol properties and then was unable to use the net or access email at all so removed it.

      Still only able to get email and surf google related things.

      Nice to see they are rolling it out rather than screwing everyone at the same time, like they did with the email.

      There is no visible differences in the layout etc - just performance if I have been informed correctly. The new GUI would be implemented in the next FW release.
