      I thought WMM was QOS for wifi only. Correct me if I am wrong.

      Very likely.

      It is. The Sagem 2304n also is supposed to support this.

      I've just had another look at the list of routers on the WiFi org's web site. I can only find the follow routers with 'Sky' in their names:

      Netgear DG934G
      Sagem 2504
      Sagem 2304n
      Sagem 2504N

      Wi-Fi Alliance: Product Search

      The D-Link DSL-2640S isn't listed, but similar models are.

      The Netgear DG834GT is also not listed as Sky specific, which is understandable as it was essentially the same as the retail model but with Sky's firmware.

      I would opt for Tom's suggestion - that the 2504N is the correct model due out next month and it may not support the 5GHz channels. This is a pity really.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms

      No you are not wrong, I was going on the supposition that if it was enabled for wireless it would be for ethernet. None of the routers previous to the 2304n have been so enabled. I don't even know if it actually works on this model. Maybe someone who has one could test it and find out?

      I wish they'd do one with gigabit as well and also USB for print server and/or external storage.

      I've got too many devices all hooked up which a router could do all of them.

      Absolutely no idea if this is genuine or not.
      Nope this router is not going to be a part of sky .. Reasons - Just to simplify the technical troubleshooting sky instructs all its router providers (Phase 1 & Phase 2 ) to make routers which look identical .. (Black or grey with lights in this order - Power,Test,Wireless,internet,1,2,3,4)
