      I really want verification its better sync wise on an LLU connection over the DG934GT.
      If you were to call Sky and ask for it, you will be charged 35.

      If anyone offers it to you for less, then it is the wrong router.

      As for how well it's connection performs when compared to the Netgear, there have not been any posts comparing the connection stats on this forum so far.

      You could always order one and return it within a week if you don't like it.

      Ok my neighbour got his router last night. were both on LLU literally live opposite each other. His connection has sync'd slightly lower than his old sagem and the wifi signal is about the same as the old router also.

      Although his died, he too like me was hoping for a better 'range' I'm guessing he will just have to get a bridge

      Router is very nice but ill save my pennies until my netgear dies.... I have a 'better line' than my mates as his master socket is in his bedroom and runs an extension cable to the phone and where his pc is.

      ill see if i can take the router to my house and set it up to check the SNR & attenuation etc.

      So....An update is in order. After the initial **** up, I received a D-Link on friday; I complained that it wasn't the new wireless N spec, at which point they agreed to send it out special delivery that day. The order went through to Unipart before 1pm, but they still didn't despatch it til the following monday...Which I had to essentially eleveate it to the customer satsifaction team in order to get a straight answer.

      I have my router now though, and while it isn't spectacular, it does the job rather well I think.

      How do you find the sync and connection over the old router?

      Much improved actually. My laptop appears to enjoy it better, and my send/receive rates are better...So overall, a happy chappy really.

      lol

      Put yours back as it was, I will add a new post.

      As previously hinted at the model is 'Sky Hub SR101' and does look very similar to the pictures in the first post of this thread.


      Please Note: No one has released this information after 30-03-12, 06:14 PM which is when we were first made aware of the model, and an image of it in situ, which we have so far not released.

      The first post pictures are very close to the design and it has more features available.

      Seen it, touched it, played with it

      Nice bit of bit.
