      No its not, it will be similar to the current Phase 2 and Refresh routers, it has a button on the side for WPS

      From the Information Tab
      Sky N Router will be trialed from now to the end of July.
      On the 1st August it will be available to new broadband customers and for existing customer with a cost of 35.00

      can guarntee this is true, also to add, it looks very similar to the current sagemcom F@ST2304 router, however the glossy black top is replaced with a silver colour, WPS button on side, dual band 5GhZ full N capability, and indeed it will be 35 to upgrade for existing customers, new customers as of August 1st will recieve this for free

      Now don't say leaks aren't always good

      Unless there is another uncertified one, the new router is single band-

      Yh I think beavdev probably mistook dual channel (channel bonding) as dual band..

      But I guess you never know. Sky have managed to surprise us with the VDSL bit.

      re: Is This The New Sky Wireless N Router / Hub?

      One interesting thing is the implementation of WMM. This could mean that Sky is finally going to give some meaning to the different coloured ethernet ports. I am not sure about the VDSL bit, I somehow doubt they have included a VDSL modem. I think it is more likely to be the built in ability to change the ADSL port to a WAN port with firmware to allow connection to a VDSL modem, but I could be wrong.
