      You have to order by phone at the moment, but it has been suggested that you will be able to buy online from 1st Sep.

      any update as to how good this is?

      I have the DG934GT black v2 sky router and was wondering if it performs better with the line as well as wifi coverage?

      The first pictures in this thread are not of the Sagem Path F@ST 2504N which is now being shipped.

      The router is rated up to 144mbps using a 20MHz bandwidth and uses the popular 2.4GHz channels (i.e. 1-13).

      I would suggest that the lack of any significant complaints shows that Sky has been able to get the router out with minimal problems.

      Connection speeds appear to be fine, although I've personally noticed a trend of good Line Attenuations and poor connection speeds across a variety of Sky connections recently (not limited to this new router).

      From reports, the WiFi signal appears to be a good WiFi n rated strength.

      Cheers for the heads up. My 934gt is working fine just wondering if the router will help. I used to have a zyxel router and over my old bt router it dropped the attenuation from 36 to 31 and improved the DL speed.

      I have noticed since I was forced OFF the BT network (sky BB & talk but opted out of sky network) my net speed has dropped on the updteam and downstream and the attenuation has gone up....

      may be coincidence....
